Though the phrase "bone harvesting" may sound more at home in a science-fiction movie than a dental office, Creek View Dental Group’s experienced technicians are quick to set their patients’ minds at ease. In dentistry, they explain, bone harvesting is merely a procedure that can give a thin jaw the thickness it needs to support dental implants.
The office’s trio of dentists specializes in bone harvesting and other general, cosmetic, and restorative procedures. A friendly staff assists the dentists, diffusing any anxieties with warm smiles and gentle touch. If that’s not enough, the office offers a range of oral and IV sedation treatments that can help patients overcome their fears of pain and of their mouths being invaded by buzzing, insectoid tooth fairies.
Healthy teeth and gums are important for more than just your smile?they also impact your overall wellness. Dr. Phillip Zeip strives to educate patients about this connection while he and his staff perform a full complement of general and cosmetic dental services. Even after more than a decade in the industry, Dr. Zeip continues to stay current by studying new techniques and adopting new technologies, including digital x-ray systems and intra-oral cameras. Dr. Zeip and his team also update the appearance of teeth with the help of implants, crowns, and veneers.
Like a 9-11 dispatcher or magic-8 ball, Dr. Amer is available 24 hours a day to help solve his patients’ problems. He works around his patients’ busy schedules to straighten their crooked teeth, overbites, and underbites using clear Invisalign retainers and Damon System self-ligating braces.
Dr. Bianco and his team of hygienists clean and maintain healthy mouths with general, restorative, and cosmetic practices. During 80-minute teeth-whitening appointments, hygienists paint individual chompers with Opalescence Boost potion, a chemically activated recipe concocted with 38% hydrogen peroxide to bleach away the evidence of habits such as drinking coffee, smoking, and quoting Sam Kinison. After technicians whitewash mouthbones, the fluoride mixed into the solution awakens to prevent roots from becoming sensitive. A thorough teeth cleaning abates the risk of mouth disease by expunging oral cavities of built-up plaque and tartar. During dental exams and x-rays, hygienists investigate the likelihood that dated dental work and decay will cause teeth to abandon gums for careers as sharp marbles.
Dr. Suman Kumar leads the staff at Accu Dental in nurturing patients? oral health with the latest health systems. Digital x-ray machines attached to high-definition monitors gift them with meticulous images for diagnosis.
