LET’S talk ABOUT FUNCTIONAL DENTISTRY
for all your oral health needs. Just know that it’s in our nature to identify and overcome the root cause of your concern and prevent future issues, not just treat symptoms.
Just like your physician uses bloodwork to help make recommendations to keep you healthy, functional dentists use saliva testing in the same way. We look at the saliva under a microscope and may recommend sending off a sample of saliva to learn specifically which bacteria are present. Checking for the 5 most harmful bacteria in the mouth is crucial for determining if our oral health is putting our overall health at risk. Taking gum measurements alone does not address the cause of why tissue loss occurred in the first place, and identifies the issue after damage has already occurred.
With this knowledge of which bacteria are present, we can target therapies that are effective for you, then re-test over time to see if we are maintaining results.
3D guided implant surgery takes digital treatment planning to the next level by allowing us to both visualize the steps of your procedure as well as create sequencing templates custom to you. 3D guided implant surgery combines CT scanning technology and CAD/CAM technology, providing you with unparalleled accuracy in the placement of your dental implants and restorations. In this way, we can optimize the location, angle and depth of your implants, leading to predictable and healthy outcomes.
