As with any field, dental care has improved throughout history with the advent of new technology. In the 1800s teeth were pulled with an archaic instrument called a turnkey. The drill, so commonplace in today’s dentist offices, was not developed until 1957. It was not until the 1990’s laser technology was introduced into the dental world. Dental technology has come a long way since then.

By utilizing the state-of-the-art technologies available such as soft tissue lasers, CAD/CAM technology, digital panoramic x-ray, intraoral camera, laser treatment, micro dentistry, intraoral scanners, and even 3-D printers, our office can provide the best care for our patients. Feel free to contact us at Periodontal and Implant Surgeons of Houston to come in and schedule an office visit where we can use these technologies to best serve you.

Soft Tissue Laser

Soft tissue lasers are used for a wide variety of applications including sample retrieval for biopsy analysis, reshaping a patient’s gums, destroying bacteria and infected tissue, and removing sores and odd tissue growths. One of the biggest benefits of using this technology is the promotion of quicker healing. No stitches are necessary because the laser cauterizes the tissue, decreasing infection rates.

3D Printers for Periodontal Care

3D printers have revolutionized the field of dental and periodontal procedures, allowing for the creation of precisely customized dental models, implant’s provisional teeth, and surgical guides. These printers utilize advanced technology to fabricate intricate dental structures accurately and efficiently. 3D printers give Periodontal and Implant Surgeons of Houston the ability to create patient-specific models and guides, ensuring that procedures are tailored to individual needs. The result is improved treatment outcomes and patient satisfaction. These printers have become indispensable tools in the dental industry, enabling us to deliver high-quality and personalized patient care.

CAD/CAM Technology

Computer technology has infiltrated nearly every aspect of society. This is also the case with dentistry. This technology is computer-assisted design and manufacturing for appliances. They can be custom-made to precisely fit the patient’s mouth avoiding sores made by ill-fitting appliances that would rub the inside of the mouth raw.

Face Scans

Face Scans, when combined with intraoral camera scans, play a crucial role in developing remarkable cosmetic dental treatment plans and dental implant placements. Periodontal and Implant Surgeons of Houston leverage the advanced technology of Face Scan products, such as the RAYFace facial scanner, to capture detailed and accurate images of patients’ faces. These scans provide a comprehensive understanding of the patient’s facial structure and allow our doctors to analyze the relationship between the teeth, gums, and overall facial aesthetics. Integrating these Face Scans with intraoral camera scans allows us to create personalized treatment plans that promote optimal results. This innovative approach enables us to achieve effective and stunning cosmetic dental outcomes, enhancing patients’ smiles and overall satisfaction.

Intra-Oral Camera

Proper imaging of the smile is essential to any treatment plan. Periodontal and Implant Surgeons of Houston use advanced intraoral cameras to quickly identify tooth decay, gum disease, missing teeth, traumatic facial injuries, and other oral health problems. We also rely on the cameras to understand the structure of your unique smile for treatment planning and to track the healing process after any procedure.


A cone beam computerized tomography (CBCT) scan can provide a complete 3-dimensional mouth image in a single file. This includes teeth, jaws, and other surrounding soft tissue. These are extremely helpful in providing the most accurate diagnoses and treatment options for a variety of dental health issues because the dentist gets a 180-degree, 3-D view of the mouth.

Laser Treatment

Laser treatments, a minimally invasive treatment option, can remove tooth decay to prepare a tooth for a filling. It can also remove excess gum tissue and eliminate bacteria from around the base of the tooth.

As mentioned above, laser treatments are now very common in the dentistry field. They are used to perform numerous different procedures to get the most accurate results.

Guided Implant Placement Using STL Printed Guides

Guided Implant Surgery at Periodontal and Implant Surgeons of Houston relies on the state-of-the-art technology available at our office. By taking a CBCT and an intraoral scan, the implant surgery or All-on4 treatment concept is planned using a computer. Our laboratory prints a surgical template to guide the implant placement. As compared to traditional dental implant surgery, guided implant surgery gives a more accurate result.

Real Patients, Real Experiences.
