Advanced Periodontics With the Latest Technologies
Modern equipment and dental x-rays in the Lehigh Valley.
Advanced Technologies to Ensure a High Standard of Care
We pride ourselves on serving patients with advanced periodontics and modern techniques. Dr. Ann Astolfi and her staff are trained to use some of the latest dental systems and technologies in the industry, including dental x-rays in the Lehigh Valley. Whether you are coming in for gum disease treatment or just need an oral evaluation, you can count on us to maintain a high standard of care every step of the way.
The Planmeca ProMax® 3D system uses cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) images to help us diagnose problems affecting the teeth and jaw. We use digital technologies such as CBCT to obtain accurate 3D images of the patient’s mouth.
Needle-free anesthesia may be administered right on the gums or below the gum line to numb the area within seconds. This is an attractive alternative to injections and helps us perform a number of procedures without causing patient discomfort. Oraqix can be applied to specific areas of the mouth in a gel form and has no side effects.
MI PASTE PLUS™
We can protect the teeth from caries development and eliminate white spots on the teeth with this innovative milk-derived formula. This paste is applied directly on to the teeth to bind to the tooth surface. It can improve saliva flow and fluoride uptake, helping to improve overall oral health while it works.
We can perform a faster and more accurate diagnosis during your oral evaluation using an intraoral camera. This camera provides us with clear and detailed images of the mouth and jaw in real-time. You can see these images on a screen in front of you as Dr. Astolfi makes a diagnosis.
When you need to have dental x-rays in the Lehigh Valley taken, you can count on us for high-quality images as part of your diagnosis or treatment plan. Our digital x-ray system helps us capture digital images of the teeth and gums without exposing the patient to high radiation levels.
PRP/PRF = Platelet Rich Plasma/Platelet Rich Fibrin
- All natural, 100% you
- Simple holistic procedure
- FDA cleared
- No chemicals or foreign substance
L-PRF is individually made for you - from you. Natural growth factors which are present in your body are concentrated using this technique. As a result your own body releases powerful healing proteins, and creates a scaffold for healing. The end results are improved healing response and significantly less recovery time.
After your L-PRF is created, it can be placed with bone grafting or soft tissue grafting during your surgical procedure. L-PRF is essentially abioartive “band-aid” that is created from your own blood and then placed in your surgical sites to promote healing = HEALING FROM WITHIN.
