Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with confidence, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved. Dental implants are changing the way people live. With them, people are rediscovering the comfort and confidence to eat, speak, laugh and enjoy life.
Cosmetic Periodontal Therapy
These procedures are a predictable way to cover unsightly, sensitive, or exposed root surfaces and to prevent future gum recession. If you are unhappy with the appearance of short unsightly teeth this can be greatly improved by a combination of periodontal procedures by Dr. Aguila and cosmetic dentistry by your dentist.
Minimally Invasive Laser Periodontal Therapy
The Millennium Periolase MVP-7 laser is used in our office to offer our patients a minimally invasive alternative in the treatment of inflammatory periodontal disease. The Periolase MVP-7 is the only FDA approved laser able to claim the outcome of “new attachment” to previously diseased tooth root surfaces. LANAP is the acronym for this Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure that is achieved when using the Periolase MVP-7. Patients experience virtually no pain, swelling or bleeding as compared to conventional surgical periodontal therapy.
PRGF (Plasma Rich in Growth Factors)
Our practice is the first periodontal and dental implant surgery practice in Jacksonville to offer the latest technology in bone and tissue regeneration: Plasma Rich in Growth Factors or PRGF Endoret.
The PRGF Endoret technique isolates from the blood plasma the proteins which are responsible for wound healing and tissue regeneration. Once a therapeutic dose is applied to the treatment area, the repair process is enhanced and accelerated.
