Dental Laser Gum Treatments

Laser Treatment for Gum Disease

Dr. Glass is trained in LANAP, a wonderful technique for laser treatment of gum disease that brings absolutely amazing results with no scalpels or sutures! Many of our patients can avoid the need for traditional gum surgery and even save their teeth. The miraculous PerioLase™ is the only FDA-approved laser for safe, effective gum surgery. It enhances the re-growth of bone around the teeth – something that a few years ago was thought to be impossible! Healing is faster and with less discomfort than regular surgery, too. Read more on LANAP on our Laser Gum Therapy page.

Dental Digital X-Rays

Digital X-Rays

We use the latest, most advanced digital X-ray equipment, with Schick 33 sensors that deliver the best digital images on the market. With this technology, a picture is produced of your mouth with a digital sensor and downloaded immediately into our computer. We can diagnose problems sooner and more accurately. Our panoramic digital X-ray machine, which is also the newest on the market, shows us your full mouth in one image, including your upper and lower jaws. These technologies result in less radiation exposure than conventional X-rays, there is no chemical developer waste to pollute the environment, and wait time for developing is eliminated.

Oral Care During the Holidays: Sugar-Free Countdown to Christmas

Below is an excerpt from an article found on Colgate.com that was written by Sher Warkentin

Maintaining good oral care during the holidays can be tough with the bombardment of sugary sweets all season. Counting down to Christmas with an advent calendar is a fun activity for your kids, but if they are filled with chocolate and sweets, it won't be so great for their teeth. Check out these simple sugar-free ideas to fill your countdown instead.

Holiday Activity Fun
Fill your child's countdown with special moments that they will cherish all year round. For each day of the month come up with a fun holiday activity that you can do together as a family. Some ideas include: watching a holiday movie, going ice skating, building a snowman and looking at Christmas lights. Write down the activity on a slip of paper and tuck one note into each day of your advent calendar.

A Puzzling Treat
Give your child a fun challenge with a customized puzzle. Draw a picture or write a special message on a blank puzzle. Break the pieces apart and place one puzzle piece in each day of your advent calendar. Every day your child can add the pieces together until they have a completed puzzle revealing a special holiday message or fun activity to do together.
