Our Technology

LANAP Laser Therapy

LANAP laser therapy (which stands for Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure) is an FDA-cleared laser treatment for periodontal disease. LANAP treatment is one of the most successful and minimally invasive protocols in treating gum disease. LANAP treatment  targets the source of the inflammation without hurting or removing any healthy gum tissue. LANAP is, often, more successful in treating periodontal disease with comfortable recovery than conventional periodontal surgery. Dr. Choe underwent in-depth training, and he is one of the few certified LANAP providers in the Capital District. 

Gemini Diode Laser

Gemini Laser Ultradent is the first dual-wavelength soft tissue diode laser available in the United States. Gemini Diode laser is a safe and effective way for treating periodontal disease by reducing bacteria. Laser therapy is an integral part of our periodontal maintenance program (dental cleaning), and is provided as indicated with no additional charge to our patients. All our hygienists are certified Gemini Diode users.

VATECH Green CT 2 (Cone Beam Computed Tomography)

VATECH Green CT 2 is an advanced 4-in-1 digital x-ray imaging system that provides the high-quality 3D images with one of the lowest radiation in the market. Cone beam computerized tomography (CT scan) is used to provide an in-depth image with far greater detail to detect pathologies that were impossible with traditional x-ray. A  CT scan is also invaluable in treatment planning for dental implant surgery and assessment of obstructive airway.

iTERO DIGITAL SCAN

Dental 3D Intraoral Scanners | Explore Our Solutions | iTero

iTERO scanner is the leading digital intraoral scanner using the latest optical technology. The iTero scanner digitally captures the structure of your teeth and gums to create a highly accurate 3D image in few minutes. Using a stunning visual that compares historical scans to a current scan, patients can see the changes in their tooth wear, tooth movement, and gingiva level over time at chairside.

GUIDED DENTAL IMPLANT SURGERY

We specialize in guided dental implant surgery. We use advanced imaging technology and computer software to strategize implant placement with high efficiency, precision, and safety. Guided implant surgery can also make the implant process quicker in terms of the time the patient spends in the office, and most surgeries require smaller incisions that result in minimal bleeding and lessened discomfort.

Piezo Ultrasonic Scaler

All our hygiene operatory is equipped with state of art Piezo-electric scalers. These scalers are  more gentle to the patient and less traumatic to the tooth and tissue than the traditional ultrasonic scalers. the Piezo tips are tiny enough to easily access areas where manual tools or traditional ultrasonic scalers may have difficulty. Our patient’s can now experience more comfortable and effective  routine periodontal cleanings. 

OralDNA BACTERIAL TEST

Oral DNA Labs review - 7 facts you should know [May 2022]

We offer two types of salivary testing: MyPerioPath® and MyPerioID® IL-6. MyPerioPath® detects oral pathogens that cause gum disease and threaten oral & systemic health. MyPerioPath® provides early warning of oral pathogens to enable the personalization of periodontal treatment. The pathogens tested for in MyPerioPath® can help determine if a patient is at increased risk of Cardiovascular Disease, Diabetes, Stroke and birth complications. The MyPerioID® IL-6 (Interleukin-6) test identifies individual genetic susceptibility to periodontal disease. With this information, clinicians are able to establish which patients are at increased risk for more severe periodontal infections due to an exaggerated immune response allowing personalized therapy and treatment. Salivary tests are comfortable, affordable, safe, and produce quicker results than traditional blood tests.
