Elite Smile Treatments


LANAP, or Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure, is an innovative laser gum surgery technique for treating periodontal disease. Unlike traditional gum surgery, LANAP is minimally invasive, utilizing laser technology to remove diseased tissue and promote the regeneration of healthy gum tissue. This cutting-edge procedure offers patients a faster recovery and less discomfort than conventional gum surgery methods.

Tissue Grafting

Tissue grafting is a surgical procedure to restore lost or damaged gum tissue. It involves taking tissue from another part of the mouth or using donor tissue to augment the gums where the recession has occurred. This technique helps improve the gums’ aesthetic appearance, protect tooth roots, and prevent further gum recession.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are titanium posts surgically placed into the jawbone to replace missing teeth. They serve as sturdy foundations for various restorations, including single implants to replace individual teeth, dental bridges spanning multiple teeth gaps, and implant-supported dentures for full-arch tooth replacement. These versatile solutions offer long-term stability, natural aesthetics, and improved functionality for patients with missing teeth.

Full Arch Dental Implants

Full arch dental implants offer a comprehensive solution for patients with extensive tooth loss, providing support and stability for an entire arch of artificial teeth. A full set of teeth can be securely anchored by strategically placing a few implants within the jawbone, restoring oral function and aesthetics. This innovative approach to tooth replacement offers patients the confidence to enjoy a complete smile and an improved quality of life.
