It is that time of year again, to start living a healthier, more confident life. Many people look to losing a few pounds, taking up a new hobby, or reducing stress to boost their quality of life. While these things are all helpful, do not forget about the benefits of restoring your oral health this year. Periodontist, Dr. Robert Friedberg, offers comprehensive gum treatments to improve the health and esthetics of your smile.

Laser Dentistry

Dr. Friedberg is uniquely trained and certified to provide our patients with a breakthrough in periodontal treatment, Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP®). LANAP® is a minimally-invasive alternative to traditional gum disease treatment that eliminates the need for cutting and stitches. Using laser dentistry and the LANAP® protocol, Dr. Friedberg is able to eradicate infected oral tissue while leaving healthy tissue unharmed. Benefits of LANAP® include little discomfort, minimal bleeding, fast healing, and less downtime, all while it saves your teeth and regenerates your jaw bone!

Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique

Another minimally-invasive alternative to conventional gum recession surgery is the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique. Using a small tool, Dr. Friedberg makes a tiny hole in your gum tissue above the areas of recession. Using a special tool, the extra gum tissue is loosened and moved down to fill the areas of recession. Benefits from this technique include no cutting, no stitches, and immediate cosmetic benefits.

Dental Implants

Dental implants have quickly become the most preferred method for permanently replacing missing teeth. Dental implants look, feel, and function like your own teeth, and with proper maintenance can last your lifetime. Save time and money without the need for regular repair and replacement of traditional methods of tooth replacement all while preserving your jaw bone and maintaining your gum health.
