LANAP Laser Gum Surgery

Laser dentistry is a safe and modern way to take care of and restore your oral health. Some of the amazing uses of laser dentistry include:

  • Disinfect periodontal (gum) pockets of bacteria after cleanings
  • Treat aphthous ulcers/canker sores and cold sores
  • Provide biostimulation to relieve muscle and jaw pain
  • Replace traditional gum surgery techniques with a safer procedure that promotes a quicker recovery time

Pain-Free Injections with DentalVibe®

DentalVibe is a unique tool designed to alleviate dental fear and anxiety, enabling you to receive the necessary dental treatment for maintaining good oral health. By providing gentle vibrations to the site of the dental injection, DentalVibe overwhelms the nerves responsible for transmitting pain signals to the brain, effectively preventing you from feeling any pain or discomfort during the injection. Additionally, the sound of the vibration serves as a distraction, while the vibrations also aid in dispersing the anesthesia quickly after injection, allowing it to take effect faster.

Patients who have experienced an injection with DentalVibe often remain unaware of when the injection actually occurs. This tool is particularly beneficial in reducing dental fear, especially among children. Many patients have expressed that if DentalVibe had been available during their childhood, their dental fears would have never developed.

OralID™ Cancer Screening

According to the Oral Cancer Foundation, one American loses their life to oral cancer every hour, and its occurrence has risen in the last five years. To combat these cancers effectively and increase the chances of successful treatment, early detection is key.

Dr. Nguyen employs OralID for all oral cancer screenings. This advanced technology utilizes proven fluorescence techniques to identify oral cancer, pre-cancer, and other abnormal lesions at an earlier stage, which is vital. The screening process is quick, taking only five minutes, and has the potential to save lives!
