The Lanap® Protocol
This laser-based treatment for gum disease and the only laser periodontitis treatment protocol that is cleared by the U.S. FDA and is clinically and histologically proven to regenerate new gum tissue, ligament, and bone.
Root canal therapy is a very common procedure. It has a reputation of being very undesirable and painful, but when done properly it is actually painless. Every tooth in your mouth is composed of a Crown and a Root.
Dentures today are available from Dr. Patterson in a variety of different materials, and as full dentures or partial dentures. These removable replacements for teeth are usually recommended when dental bridges or dental implants are not appropriate. Complete dentures replace all of the teeth on the top or bottom of the mouth, while partial dentures are used in connection with existing natural teeth.
Dr. Patterson uses natural colored dental fillings to restore teeth, or to replace older metal fillings. Even better, the materials used by Dr. Patterson help to strengthen weakened teeth. The material used by Casey Patterson DDS for dental fillings is securely bonded using natural looking materials, so that no one will notice your fillings.
Dental Crowns & Bridges
Crowns are synthetic caps, usually made of a material like porcelain, placed on the top of a tooth. Crowns are typically used to restore a tooth's function and appearance following a restorative procedure such as a root canal. A bridge is a non-surgical way to replace one or many teeth. A bridges a prosthetic device which is cemented onto at least two teeth.
Bonding is the process of permanently attaching necessary dental materials to existing teeth using a powerful dental adhesive and a specialized curing light. Bonding is necessary for veneers, crowns, bridges, inlays and onlays. Dr. Patterson will determine the best type of bond to use, depending upon your specific needs. Dental bonding at Casey Patterson DDS generally requires just one office visit, and it is typically pain free.
