Patient Concerns

Patient Education

We feel patient education is very important and recognize that the best  treatment option differs from one individual to the next. Our goal is that you are completely informed concerning your condition, your options for treatment, and any treatment to be performed. We encourage you to voice any questions you may have.

Patient Safety

We fully adhere to professional standards of cleanliness, sterilization, and radiation control. Our staff are likewise knowledgeable on the latest techniques.

Sterilization

We know that preventing the spread of infectious diseases such as AIDS, herpes, hepatitis and even the cold virus is critical.

We use barrier techniques such as disposable masks and gloves and replace them with every patient. Each piece of fixed operatory equipment is disinfected with antibacterial/antiviral solution prior to every clinical procedure. Sterile water delivery systems are utilized. We use autoclave sterilization for all instruments prior to dental examination and treatment. You can be assured that our staff have been specifically trained on sterilization procedures and their importance.

Pre-medication

Patients with certain medical conditions (e.g. valvular heart conditions and artificial joints) are required to pre-medicate with antibiotics prior to treatment. We require this with your safety in mind. Please inform us if you have a condition that might require pre-medication.

Post Treatment Instructions

After treatment, home care and medication instructions will be thoroughly explained. For your convenience, you will also be given printed instructions. Of course, we are always available for questions after treatment.

Patient Comfort

We go to extraordinary lengths to ensure our patients are as comfortable as possible during dental procedures. Please click here for more information on this topic.

Special Equipment

We continually integrate proven technologies into our practice. Below is an introduction to some of the advanced equipment we use:

Computerized Charting

Digital charting is a efficient means of tracking a patient's dental history.  It also provides high-quality visual aids for patients to view changes in their dental health.  Rather than relying on general charts and models, Dr. Newman can explain the diagnosis and treatment options using specific information.

Lasers (Picasso by AMD Lasers)
Lasers can be used to get rid of periodontal bacteria in coordination with traditional techniques, such as Scaling and Root Planing or Pocket Depth Reduction (see the Periodontal Treatment section). In some cases a dental laser can be used to go deeper in the pockets around teeth in a less invasive manner. Lasers can also be used in several other procedures, such as gum contouring and crown lengthening. Dental lasers have been in use for nearly 20 years.

Magnifier Lenses
You may have seen a magnifier lenses in a jewelry store when the jeweler was closely examining a diamond. Dental magnifier lenses are made for periodontists to view your teeth and gums in minute detail during periodontal procedures. Dr. Newman uses magnifier lenses in many procedures to ensure more precise treatment.

Piezosurgical Osteotome
Pieziosurgery utilizes controlled three-dimensional ultrasonic vibration to precisely shape bone, but not soft tissues.  This technique is ideal for delicate procedures, such as periodontal surgery, bone augmentation, sinus grafts and ridge augmentation.   It allows for more precision, faster healing, and less invasion.

SimPlant™
SimPlant™ is computer 3-D imaging software that enhances the overall success of your dental implant. This 3-D imaging gives us a more complete picture of the quality and quantity of your bone support making it possible for us to better determine the ideal location for your dental implant.
