We offer the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP®) at our practice, a minimally-invasive alternative to gum surgery for patients with gum disease. LANAP® works by targeting only the infected tissue and leaves healthy tissue intact. We pass a laser over the teeth and gums to eradicate the infection and promote healthy tissue regeneration. Dr. Scott Jett may recommend LANAP® as part of your periodontal therapy plan.
We can detect and diagnose a number of oral health problems quickly with a set of digital x-rays. The digital x-ray machine emits less radiation than traditional machines and provides instant images of the jaw and mouth. We typically make use of digital x-rays during an oral evaluation or emergency visits.
VaTech Cone Beam Guided Surgery
The Cone Beam system provides 3D images of the face and jaw and these
images can help us diagnose a number of complex dental conditions. We can also make use of the VaTech Cone Beam system for guided surgery. The Cone Beam is used to perform a number of dental procedures and can be very valuable for detecting and monitoring stages of gum disease, TMJ, impacted teeth, and for dental implant planning purposes. We can work with very accurate images using the Cone Beam system and perform a variety of procedures with a high success rate.
