Life's simple pleasures can cause problems and pain for the millions of adults who suffer from permanent tooth loss. Now, more and more people are putting an end to these problems by choosing dental implants, a revolutionary way to replace missing teeth. Dental implants offer an excellent alternative to the limitations of conventional dentures, bridges and missing teeth. Dental implants are changing the way people live. With them, people are rediscovering the comfort and confidence to eat, speak, laugh and enjoy life.
Bone Morphogenetic Protein is a synthetic derivative of a naturally occuring protein in the human body.
There are 14 different types of BMP in the human body. BMP-2 is the most potent bone forming substance that we know of. Now BMP-2 is created in the labratory and is completely synthetic. The material is so potent that we begin to see bone formation in the sites within 10 days.
This product has completely revolutionized the process of bone grafting. We can now predictably graft bone into sites and expect it to heal completely. Whether it is to help a extraction site heal or augment bone in the sinus region, BMP is the material of choice for this practice. We have nearly 400 cases and extensive experience with Bone Morphogenetic protein.
PELLEVE is a new technique offered by the doctors at the Oral Surgical Institute where the effects of aging skin can be virtually eliminated. All of this is done without surgery or the need for anesthesia! Pelleve is designed to tighten the skin by gently warming the tissues with radiowave energy. The treatment tip provides a continuous deep warming with optimal temperatures which target the subdermal junction and allows delivery of heat to the dermis just below the skin. This mild thermal energy then causes the collagen in the deeper layers of the skin to regenerate and heal. The result is tighter, more youthful looking skin. The wrinkles associated with aging are visibly reduced.
When radiofrequency energy is directed down into the deeper layers of the skin, a natural wound response is stimulated. The heat generated creates an "injury zone" and to repair the injury, your body breaks down the old disorganized collagen and creates new collagen. The benefit of stimulating your own collagen production is that the collagen is deposited in an orderly, structured manner and that there is no risk of allergy, immune reaction or injection-induced infection.
Typically each patient will require more than one treatment session. Although there is an almost immediate initial response, this fades within the first few days. As the weeks progress, there is more and more collagen reorganization. After the 2nd and 3rd treatments, the collagen reorganization reaches its peak. Final results are not seen, however for up to 6 months after the completion of your treatment. Treatment sessions are spaced out about 30 days apart to take advantage of the body's ability to create new collagen.
