Laser Dentistry- LANAP® protocol:
Our doctors offer an FDA-cleared laser periodontitis treatment called the LANAP protocol, a less painful and more successful treatment alternative to traditional gum disease surgery. The LANAP protocol is the only scientifically proven laser treatment that results in true periodontal regeneration, growth of new bone and gum tissue reattachment. The specific laser we using during LANAP treatment can target the bacteria causing gum disease without damaging the surrounding healthy gum tissue. This allows the gums to heal without the need for scalpel or sutures. Dr. Towe and Dr. Shoff have completed the advanced training required to become certified in this technique.

Benefits of LANAP® treatment:

  • Less Discomfort– Patients report less discomfort during and after the procedure compared to traditional gum surgery treatment.
  • More Rapid Healing– the LANAP® protocol is minimally invasive and allows faster healing. Most patients have little or no down time.
  • Reduction in Gum Bleeding and Inflammation– The laser detoxifies the gums by targeting bacteria without injuring healthy tissue.
  • Little to No Gum Recession–There is no cutting or suturing of the gums and therefore there is minimal gum shrinkage. This preserves your beautiful smile and reduces the chance of the teeth becoming sensitive to heat and cold.
  • Safe for patients with Health Concerns – The LANAP® protocol is safe for patients with health concerns such as HIV, diabetes, hemophilia and for those taking blood thinners.
  • Saves Teeth and Dental Implants– This technique has allowed patients to keep their natural teeth and dental implants when traditional treatments have failed.

Dental CT Scan (Cone Beam)

Computed tomography (CT or CAT scan) takes pictures of the internal structures of our bodies. We are pleased to be able to offer our patients state of the art 3-D dental imaging. Our CT machine allows our doctors to determine and visualize precise location of your teeth as well as vital structures, such as the nerve, sinus, and blood vessels.


This device is used for extraction, sinus lift and ridge augmentation surgeries to preserve soft tissue and bone, reduce postoperative discomfort and expedite healing for patients.

Patient Benefits:

  • Soft tissue will be protected, f.e. in lateral sinus lift surgery the risk of preformation is reduced by 80%
  • Less swelling after surgery with PIEZOSURGERY®
  • Faster and better osseointegration after implant site preparation with PIEZOSURGERY®
  • Faster and less traumatic post-operative recovery

From our Patients

  • 5 star review  Excellent experience with this practice. Dr. Towe’s bedside manner & technique were top notch and all staff were friendly & accommodating. Fingers crossed that I’m never again in need of a periodontist but if so, I’m going back to Dr. Towe without hesitation!

  • 5 star review  Just completed treatment and follow-up care for soft tissue (gum) grafts this week. This was the second round of treatment I have trusted to Dr. Towe. Once again, she and her staff made my comfort and recovery their top priority every step of the way. Explanations were thorough and informative. Everyone has always been attentive and patient focused. I highly recommend Dr. Towe and Advanced Implants and Periodontics.

  • 5 star review  Excellent staff. Great office and working conditions. I rate this experience as excellent. Being my first implant I was very cautious. I would highly recommend this organization for any Peridontics and implant work.

    thumb JAN WILLARD
  • 5 star review  A surgical procedure was proposed by another physician and I approached Dr. Towe to see if the surgery was necessary. (second opinion). She concluded that other treatments might be considered prior to the proposed surgery. After a comprehensive evaluation, Dr. Towe implemented less invasive treatments which were sufficient to avoid the proposed treatment. She communicated effectively with my primary dental group so that the needed information was there when I visited them. I recommend this group highly.

  • 5 star review  I can't share enough good things about Dr. Towe and her staff. I have now had two complete upper and lower gum grafts using the pinhole technique. They did my upper and then did a lower months after we completed the upper. The results are outstanding and I could not be more happy!!! Professionalism is top notch here. The office staff are wonderful and Dr. Towe is so very nice. If you are contemplating where you should go for any major dental work, please go here. You won't be disappointed.

    thumb Lisa Bale
  • 5 star review  I've been under the care of Dr. Towe for over a year and recently underwent a two-part procedure that involved extractions. My procedures were painless; a complete success. The staff is always professional. They value my time. I'm never kept waiting when I arrive for appointments. Their offices are impeccable. I'm pleased to offer my recommendation.

  • 5 star review  When you find out that you need unexpected periodontal surgery at 26 weeks pregnant during a pandemic, you tend to panic. Dr. Shoff and the staff at Advanced Implants treated me like family from the moment that I walked in the door. They patiently explained all aspects of my procedure and care in detail, answered all questions that I had, and were extremely considerate of how I was feeling and my needs. Their office was clean, bright, and welcoming. They were flexible in scheduling me early in the morning or late in the afternoon. The entire process, from start to finish, was pain free. I would highly recommend this staff and practice!

    thumb Molly Smith
  • 5 star review  I highly recommend Advanced Implants & Periodontics! The office is modern, clean, and beautifully decorated and the staff are very personable and efficient. Not only was Dr. Towe extremely knowledgeable, but she also had a great “bedside manner”! She went above and beyond to make sure I had a successful implant as well as the most positive experience possible. She even called to check on me after my surgery. If you have to have an implant, you’ll be in the best of hands with Dr. Towe!

    thumb Stephanie Campbell
  • 5 star review  I needed extensive gun grafting and Dr Towe and her team were outstanding. The office is spotless and their attention to detail is everything I could have hoped for.
