Perhaps you’ve gone to the dentist, discovered a gum issue and need some specialty care.
That’s where we come in. Welcome to Poway Perio,the Poway periodontal specialty office serving Poway and the surrounding San Diego area.
Fun fact: Periodontal means “around the tooth”. True to the word’s origin, Poway Perio is devoted to serving bones around teeth. Everyone has different periodontal needs, from gum grafting to treatment of periodontal disease, and we want to make sure you get the care you need.
MINIMALLY INVASIVE PROCEDURES
One of the unique aspects of our practice is our philosophy to employ conservative approaches for periodontal treatments. Minimally invasive procedures like microsurgical techniques along with application of biological mediators for tissue engineering is our main focuses and is a good example of executing this philosophy.
I truly believed that Regenerative procedures have become the main stream of periodontal daily practice.
Dr. Alireza Khansari MSD
CONE BEAM TOMOGRAPHY
Utilizing cone beam technologies in our practice provide us with great advantages in maxillofacial imaging. Cone beam CT provides detailed images of the jaw bones and is performed to evaluate diseases of the jaw, dentition, and bony structures of the face, nasal cavity and sinuses. Dental cone beam CT is commonly used for treatment planning of it is also useful for more complex cases that involve:
- Periodontal diseases.
- Surgical planning for impacted teeth.
- Diagnosing temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ).
- Accurate placement of dental implants.
- Evaluation of the jaw, sinuses, nerve canals and nasal cavity.
- Determining bone structure and tooth orientation.
- Locating the origin of pain or pathology.
APPLICATION OF BIOLOGICAL MEDIATORS
Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is a concentrated blood sample that contains high levels of platelets, a critical component of the wound healing process. Platelets contain growth factors that are responsible for stimulating tissue generation and repair. Growth factors derived from platelets are responsible for soft tissue repair, bone regeneration, development of new blood vessels, and stimulation of the wound healing process. PRP delivers a concentration of autologous platelets and growth factors that is roughly 4-6 times greater than that found in whole blood. Unlike other products, it delivers a broad range of growth factors in the proper concentration and ratios to help optimize conditions for healing. Clinical studies have shown that application of PRP can help reduce bleeding, minimize pain, reduce infection rates, and optimize overall healing.
At Poway Perio, we only recommend surgery when necessary. If initial steps or steps aren’t successful, we may recommend surgery to help get your teeth and gums back to health.
Periodontal disease is an inflammatory disease that affects your teeth and the area around your teeth, like your gums.
Early periodontal disease, known commonly as gingivitis, can often be taken care of and even reversed with mindful dental care, such as teeth brushing, flossing, using of mouthwash and having regular visits to your dentist.
