SINUS AUGMENTATION WITH IMPLANTS
Implants were indicated for the missing bicuspid and molar on the upper left. The patient did not have enough bone to fully support the implants. Normally the sinus augmentation would be done prior to placing any implants. There was enough bone to keep the implants stable so it was decided to do both procedures at the same appointment.

OPERCULUM REMOVAL
Laser removal of an operculum, excess tissue, over the biting surface of the lower second molars. Very quick, minimal to no bleeding and minimal post op discomfort.

FRENECTOMY
This is a lower front Frenectomy using a Waterlase iPlus Laser. Please notice at the one week post op, the recession on the lower front tooth improved once the pull from the frenum was released. No bleeding and very minimal post op discomfort.

DENTAL IMPANTS
Dental implants were placed in the molar and biscuspid areas. The implants were placed using a flapless technique.

CROWN LENGTHENING
The lower right bicuspids had tooth margins below the gum and close to the bone. In order for the new crowns to be placed, more tooth structure needed to be exposed for the crowns to ‘grab onto’. The procedure is called a “crown lengthening” It involves removal of a collar of gum and removal of some of the supporting bone. The gums are repositioned down so that more tooth is exposed. There are times that removal of the tooth and placement of an implant MAY be the better than a crown lengthening and new crown.

CONNECTIVE TISSUE GRAFT (TUNNEL TECHNIQUE)
The upper left cuspid and biscuspid recession was treated with a connective tissue graft. The ‘Tunnel” technique was used to create the recipient site. The graft is then slipped into the tunnel and sutured in place. The graft and gums are pulled into a position to cover the root surface.

LASER GINGIVECTOMY #11-12
The upper left cuspid/bicuspid area was treated with a laser gingivectomy to remove the hyperplastic-excessive tissue. The patient had minimal bleeding during the procedure and minimal post op discomfort. The tissues look great after just one week of healing.

FIBROMA BIOPSY ON CHEEK
A fibroma was removed from the left inner cheek. There was minimal bleeding and no post op discomfort. The area looked great after just one week of healing.

LAPT/DEEP POCKET THERAPY LL
This procedure is called a Laser Assisted Periodontal Therapy or Deep Pocket Therapy or Closed Flap Surgery. The procedure was performed using a Waterlase iPlus laser. This patient was on blood thinners and could not use the anesthetic that reduces bleeding during treatment. Notice the minimal bleeding during and after the surgery when using the laser. The patient had minimal post op discomfort and no post op bleeding. The final results were excellent.

LAPT/DEEP POCKET THERAPY+EMDOGAIN #6
This procedure is called a Laser Assisted Periodontal Therapy or Deep Pocket Therapy or Closed Flap Surgery. The procedure was performed using a Waterlase iPlus laser. The area was also treated with Emdogain to encourage optimal healing.   Notice the minimal invasiveness.   The patient had no post op discomfort or bleeding. The final results were excellent.

CONNECTIVE TISSUE GRAFT (POUCH TECHNIQUE)
The upper left and right biscuspid recession was treated with a connective tissue graft. The roots are ‘cleaned’ with scaling and tetracycline preparation. The ‘Pouch” technique was used to create the recipient site. The graft is then slipped into the pouch and sutured in place. The graft and gums are pulled into a position to cover the root surface. There is less discomfort than the flapping and in most cases, root coverage is more predictable with this technique.
