Millions of Americans have gum disease, in fact, it's the number one reason people lose their teeth. The LANAP Protocol is the gentle laser alternative to traditional surgery. Patient-friendly and minimally invasive, the LANAP Protocol is a comfortable, no-stitch approach for periodontal treatment. With recovery that is almost immediate, in many cases you can return to your normal daily activities right after treatment.
Confident Smile dental implants are a cost-effective and comfortable solution for people who are missing one or more teeth or who have loose-fitting dentures. Our Confident Smile dental implant systems can replace a single tooth, several teeth or an entire mouth to support full bridges or dentures. With proper care and maintenance, dental implants can last a lifetime. Bring back the joy of smiling with Confident Smile dental implants.
Never deal with uncomfortable dentures again…even if you have had dentures for years or have been told you have bone loss. There are techniques available today that can help. With dental implants, loose fitting dentures are a thing of the past. Dentures can be secured in your mouth with dental implants so you can have a strong, confident smile.
Treating gum recession is important for long-term dental health and wellness. Preserve your teeth and restore your smile with the revolutionary Pinhole Technique. This patient-friendly procedure can treat receding gums and correct exposed tooth roots, scalpel-free and suture-free. It is performed by inserting a very small tool into a pinpoint hole in the gums to gently loosen the tissue and slide the gum line down over the exposed root structure.
Oral and maxillofacial care can help manage a wide variety of problems related to the mouth, teeth, and facial regions, including wisdom teeth removal, jaw surgery and oral pathology. With locations throughout the Rochester area, we offer comprehensive oral surgery services and exceptional patient care.
Third molars, commonly referred to as wisdom teeth, start to make their appearance between the ages of 17 and 25. While not all wisdom teeth require removal, some extractions are performed due to problems with pain, swelling, decay or infection. The procedure is generally performed as a preventative measure to avoid any serious complications in the future.
Our patients' comfort is a top priority for us, especially when they may feel apprehensive about their dental treatments. If you are nervous for your procedure, our dental professionals are certified in various forms of sedation dentistry that can help minimize dental phobias, alleviate any discomfort, and provide a safe way to treat your needs
With six offices throughout Rochester, a healthy smile is just a few miles away. Call today to make an appointment and start receiving the personalized care you need and deserve.
