At Gallardo & Lamas Periodontics and Implant Dentistry, our patients achieve superior results through first-class service and state-of-the-art procedures. To help you better understand what sets Gallardo & Lamas apart from the rest, here are ten reasons why you should choose us for your periodontal and implant dentistry needs.
1. Wide Range of Services
Our number one goal is to save your smile. To achieve this, we offer a wide variety of implant and periodontal procedures and services. These include preventative and risk assessments to complex treatments. All procedures such as oral surgery, dental implants, and gum disease treatments are conducted using only the most modern procedures known in periodontics and implant dentistry.
2. Less Invasive Procedures
One of the primary reasons people do not seek treatment for gum disease or other dental issues is out of the fear of pain and discomfort. We have removed much of the discomfort by offering several less–invasive procedures. For example, LANAP® is a laser procedure that treats gum disease without use of a scalpel. We also offer The Pinhole Surgical Technique™, which is a cutting-edge procedure that treats gum recession without surgery.
3. Same Day Implants
4. Lab Work
To help identify infections causing bacteria in your gums and mouth, we utilize lab-processed salivary testing and a phase contrast microscope. These state-of-the-art lab techniques allow us to more effectively diagnose bacteria and aid in prescribing correct treatments.
5. Non-Stressful Anesthesia
Pain associated with dental procedures is a primary concern among patients. We strive to ease those concerns by offering The Wand, which is a painless, stress-free alterative to syringes. Sedation dentistry services are also offered including, IV Conscious Sedation, orally administered sedation, and nitrous oxide.
6. Plasma Rich In Growth Factors
We offer Plasma Rich In Growth Factors or PRGF, which is the latest in bone and tissue regeneration technology. This technique isolates proteins from your blood plasma responsible for tissue regeneration and wound healing. A dose is then applied to the treatment area and jumpstarts the repair process. PRGF results in improved healing and regeneration.
7. Oral Surgery
Our office offers a full range of oral surgery services ranging from wisdom teeth removal, to routine extractions and oral pathology.
8. Safety Comes First
When it comes to our patients, safety is our top priority. We ensure that every procedure we undertake is fully safe for our patients. Not only do we have numerous safeguards in place, we only use the safest equipment and most modern technologies to ensure your procedure goes as smooth and safe as possible.
9. Free Consultation
We are mindful of the expense that can accompany dental procedures. In our effort to ease these concerns, we offer free consultations. Don’t let the fear of expense hold you back from seeing one of our doctors. Our free consultations will help you evaluate what steps and procedures are needed to help you regain the smile you deserve.
