Early detection is vital to the treatment of oral cancer. Our office offers Velscope as our oral cancer screening tool. Velscope uses a bright blue light to show changes in your mouth that your hygienist may not have normally seen. Early cancer is difficult to detect with the naked eye so this is an important tool to detect the early signs of oral cancer.
Accurate Diagnosis Of Decay
New laser technology allows us to detect hidden decay where it can be eliminated in the early stages, enabling you to protect and preserve the tooth structure.
Finally there is a solution to loose, uncomfortable dentures. If you are tired of using messy denture adhesives, unable to eat what you want, or having trouble speaking and are embarrassed about it, mini dental implants may be for you. This new procedure will anchor your dentures in place in about an hour at about one-half the cost of previous implant procedures. This procedure requires no tissue cutting or sutures and patients have very minimal discomfort following the procedure. They can leave the office with their dentures firmly in place and enjoy their next meal without the worries they had prior to the treatment.
Both traditional and mini-implants have their advantages and disadvantages. By offering both, we can help you decided the most affordable and appropriate choice to get the best results for you.
Replacing Missing Teeth
A dental implant is a strong titanium post that is placed below the gum and serves as an anchor for one or more artificial teeth. Mini-implants are more slender and thousands have been placed with a high success rate. The big advantages are that this technique is simple, non-surgical, and cost effective, and generally can be placed in one visit. In about an hour a simple tooth can be replaced without grinding down healthy enamel of neighboring natural teeth. You can walk out ready to enjoy the foods you wish without the long healing times and costs typically associated with conventional dental implants.
Many patients who do not have adequate bone available for standard larger implants are often candidates for the mini implants. Courtesy consultations are available for patients interested in dental implants. MINI-IMPLANT VIDEO
