Advanced Care Through Technology
Advanced Implants and Periodontics champions advanced technology and its integration in dental practice. We are able to provide patients just like you with more precise and reliable procedures, shorten treatment and recovery time as well as decrease discomfort after surgery.
Dental CT Scan (Cone Beam)
Computed tomography (CT or CAT scan) takes images of the internal structures of our bodies. We are pleased to be able to offer our patients state of the art 3D dental imaging. Our CT machine allows our doctors to capture detailed images to determine and visualize the precise location of your teeth and vital structures, such as nerves, sinuses, and blood vessels. With CT scans we are able to increase patient safety achieving a full mouth 3D image at a lower radiation dose compared to standard imaging.
Guided Implant Surgery
Laser Dentistry - LANAP® protocol:
Our doctors offer an FDA-cleared laser periodontitis treatment called the LANAP protocol. This is 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 use 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.
This device is used for extractions, sinus lifts and ridge augmentation surgeries to preserve soft tissue and bone, reduce postoperative discomfort and expedite healing for patients.
Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF)
Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) is a substance taken from your own blood that helps to promote healing. Since PRF is taken from your own blood, it is highly biocompatible and there is an extremely low risk of allergies, reaction, or adverse side effects. When applied to the treatment site, PRF helps to stimulate the healing process and acts as a bioactive band-aid.
PRF is composed of various essential healing components, including:
