Lasers & Teeth In A Day
We live in a world where technology is progressing faster than ever. People are always looking for the latest and greatest. This statement holds true for dentistry as well. A good deal of the new products being heavily advertised to consumers of dentistry are dental laser therapy and dental implant treatment in one day.
At Poulos and Somers, we are proud to announce the addition of Laser Assisted Periodontal Therapy (LANAP)! Starting in November 2012, we will be offering laser periodontal treatment, in addition to our many other services. This is a very exciting development in the world of periodontics and we are very excited to share this technology with our patients! If you have been told by your dentist that you need periodontal work, and you have put it off for fear of surgery, laser therapy may be the solution you've been waiting for! Call us today to set up a consultation with one of our doctors to find out if laser therapy is for you. For more info about LANAP and laser assisted periodontal therapy (including videos) please visit www.LANAP.com
Teeth in a Day:
Teeth in a day is a concept which has gained a tremendous amount of attention in the media recently. You may have heard some companies advertising complete dental implant treatment with teeth the same day and no bone grafting. The good news is they aren’t lying! 3-D imaging and advances in surgical techniques now allow us to place dental implants and provisionalize them in the same day. This means that a temporary tooth (or teeth) can be securely attached to the dental implants the same day as surgery! A permanent tooth (or teeth) will then be placed a few months later when everything has completely healed. We offer both teeth-in-a-day (all upper and/or lower teeth) and single tooth implants in a day. Unfortunately, this kind of treatment can only be accomplished in certain cases and is not possible with all patients. If you are interested in seeing if teeth in a day is for you, ask one of our doctors at your next visit to Poulos & Somers
