Gum Disease Treatment – Accurate Diagnosis

gum-disease-treatment-caAccurate diagnosis allows for precision in treatment and minimization of discomfort and complications. The latest of our technological innovations, in the form of a 3-D cone-beam-computerized-tomography (CBCT) machine, has given a quantum leap to precision in diagnosis and treatment of dental conditions, such as periodontitis (gum disease), abscessed teeth needing endodontic treatment (root canal treatment), TMJ (disorders of the jaw joints), loss of teeth needing implant placement, oral lesions (tumors) as well as screening for such medical disorders such as sleep apnea. Dr. Chao also brings to his patients special expertise, knowledge and experience in the oral appliance treatment of sleep apnea and the use of mini dental implants for the stabilization of dentures. He has been treating sleep apnea with oral appliances since the ‘80’s and has been using mini dental implants for hundreds of denture patients since the introduction of mini-implants in 2001.
