Guided Surgery for Dental Implants

As a Fellow of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, Dr. Brooks has extensive training in dental implant techniques, including guided surgery. This process uses advance planning, imaging technology, and the creation of surgical guides that allow increased safety and precision in the placement of the implants. “Virtual surgery” means accuracy, efficiency, and the best possible outcomes for you.

Three-Dimensional Dentistry!

We are proud to be one of the first practices in our area to use 3-D cone beam CT digital imaging technology. Think of this as a three-dimensional X-ray that is FAR more accurate than traditional X-rays, takes much less time and does all this with much less radiation exposure.

A great advantage of using ultra cone beam images when diagnosing patients and evaluating treatment options is the dentist’s ability to clearly see the patient’s anatomy in 3-D, instead of flat, two-dimensional images. This leads to much greater accuracy for all dental treatment, especially implant placement and any oral surgeries.

Introducing Laser Dentistry

We are thrilled to introduce this technology to our patients. Our soft tissue laser provides safe and effective treatment that makes the process easier and more comfortable, with faster recovery times. Many conditions such as periodontal (gum) disease, herpetic/aphthous ulcers, root desensitizing, and TMJ inflammation can now be addressed with laser treatment. It also reduces medical waste!

sterilization

State-of-the-Art Sterilization

Sterilization is taken very seriously in our office. In addition to cleaning and sterilizing all instruments after every use, single-use tools are used where needed. Instruments are sterilized after each use with a special unit called an autoclave, which is regularly monitored by an independent lab to ensure the highest level of safety and cleanliness. Your health is too important to us to take even the slightest risk.
