- All-on-4® Dental ImplantsAll-on-4 dental implants are a revolutionary approach to solving complete tooth loss. By simply placing four to six dental implants into your jaw in areas with the most bone, we are able to attach a complete arch of new teeth. This arch of teeth will be permanently attached and provide you with a strong, stable bite. Those with no remaining teeth, failing teeth or who are unhappy with dentures may be candidates for All-on-4.
- Dental ImplantsConsidered the gold standard of tooth replacement, dental implants mimic the function and appearance of natural teeth. Composed of a titanium post inserted into the jaw bone, a lifelike dental crown and an abutment to attach the two, dental implants will allow you to eat and interact with others confidently. With proper oral care, your implants can last you the rest of your life.
- Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST™)Gum recession is a common concern for many people and involves the gum tissue pulling away from the teeth, exposing the sensitive tooth roots. PST allows our doctors to treat gum recession in a minimally invasive way. We will make a pinhole in your gums and using a small instrument, gently reposition the gums back down around the teeth. This process is gentle and involves no scalpels or sutures as well as causing minimal bleeding. Patients typically can return to their normal routines right after treatment.
- Gum DiseaseAround half of all Americans suffer from some form of gum disease. As periodontists, we are trained and experienced at identifying and treating gum disease in patients. If caught early enough, gum disease can be cured, but if the disease is left to progress, it cannot be cured and only maintained with routine care. With our experienced care, we can eliminate gum disease and keep your mouth healthy.
