About Dental Technologies

At the core of our practice's philosophy is the commitment to provide our patients with the most effective, predictable, and minimally invasive care available today. Each of our experienced periodontal specialists is proud to uphold this mission by remaining knowledgeable and current on the latest in advanced dental technology. With this approach, we find that we can optimize treatment results while minimizing the impact on our patient's health, comfort, and oral structures. Premier Periodontics is proud to be a leader in specialized periodontal care and implant surgery and is pleased to improve the oral health and wellness of Bellevue, WA area patients with a range of cutting-edge diagnostic and treatment protocols.

What dental technologies do we use?

Some of the advanced dental technologies we utilize at Premier Periodontics include:

Digital X-rays: Our digital x-ray system produces highly defined images with up to 90% less radiation than traditional film x-rays. We use these diagnostic images during exams and treatments to evaluate the health of your teeth, supporting jawbone, and other oral structures.

PerioLase MVP-7 TruePulse: Specially designed for use with the LANAP and LAPIP laser gum treatment protocol, our advanced soft tissue laser gently eliminates harmful bacteria and gum disease infected tissues deep below the gumline.

X-Guide: Used in conjunction with our cone beam system, the X-Guide is a 3D navigational tool our team employs during surgical procedures to enhance the precision of dental implant placement.

Perioscopy: This technology utilizes a small dental endoscope that magnifies and provides a field of visualization for our team when performing gum disease treatment. In many cases, minimally invasive perioscopy can eliminate the need to surgically retract the tissues during periodontal treatment.

Piezoelectric Bone Surgery: Piezoelectric techniques harness the power of ultrasonic frequencies to provide a less invasive approach in bone surgical procedures. The result is a less-intrusive treatment, faster healing, and minimal impact on surrounding gum tissues.

Cone Beam (CBCT): Our 3D cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) system generates very high-detailed images of the mouth, jaw, and facial structures. CBCT scans are used in many of our procedures to render diagnoses and treatment planning. Surgical outcomes are more predictable and highly precise.

Trios Scanner: An invaluable technology, our Trios scanner captures 3D digital impressions of the mouth for use in planning and performing various types of procedures. It eliminates the need for uncomfortable physical impressions and enhances accuracy in the delivery of periodontal and implant care.

Densah Protocol: The Densah Protocol is used in preparing the jawbone for dental implant placement. This advanced approach is designed to enhance the stability of dental implants once placed in the jaw and encourages a faster healing response.
