Platelet-rich plasma or fibrins are used to promote healing during soft tissue procedures. By drawing a small amount of your blood, the platelet-rich plasma will be separated by a machine in our office and placed in your surgery site. This minimally invasive procedure results in the production of a fibrin membrane that stimulates the release of growth factors involved during wound healing processes, resulting in a quicker recovery.
At our Chattanooga, TN office our PerioLase MVP-7™ and Soft Tissue Diode lasers are used in soft tissues surgeries like frenectomies, disinfection of periodontal pockets and gum recontouring. Laser therapy is less invasive than traditional treatments involving scalpels and incisions and results in minimal discomfort, swelling and healing times.
Dental impressions are a thing of the past. With our state-of-the-art TRIOS intra-oral scanner, we simply wave a wand over your teeth, capturing a series of photos that are converted instantly into a 3-D image. From there, we can send them electronically to our FormLabs 2, 3D printer. Within a matter of minutes, we’ll have a physical model of your teeth or interim restoration that we can hold!
Cone Beam CT Imaging (CBCT) through i-Cat is a specialized 3D x-ray that shows us the internal structure of your jaw, teeth, bone, gum tissue, nerves, etc. It helps to leave the guesswork out of oral surgery. Best of all, it’s easy on you. Just stand as the unit rotates around your head, capturing an image in seconds.
