Dr. Bruce Nelson provides dental implants for Phoenix, AZ patients that are a substantial improvement over temporary devices like dentures or bridges. The implants are quickly placed in as little as one visit. Dr. Nelson also leads the dental profession with advanced gum disease treatment called Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure, LANAP®, to help people combat the silent epidemic of advanced gum disease that can lead to tooth loss, among other health risks.

Nearly 70 percent of Americans over the age of 40 are missing one or more teeth, whether due to decay, injury, or gum disease. Dr. Nelson creates natural-looking replacement teeth that securely attach to dental implants. Titanium is the preferred material for implants because the metal naturally bonds with human bone in a process called osseointegration. The dental implants that Phoenix, AZ patients receive from Dr. Nelson help many people enjoy a full diet of the foods they were unable to eat with dentures or missing teeth holding them back from chewing well.

Dr. Nelson provides a gum disease treatment that eliminates the bacteria that cause gum disease and removes damaged gum tissue while leaving healthy gum tissue intact. Gum disease is a silent epidemic in America, with many millions at risk of the complications of unchecked periodontitis, including tooth loss, root damage, jawbone damage, and a host of other health conditions that have been linked to severe gum disease.

The FDA cleared LANAP® is minimally invasive and is proven to lead to stronger, healthier gums in as little as one visit for most patients. Using computer-guided lasers, Dr. Nelson eradicates the bacteria that cause gum disease. The laser heat even stimulates bone for stronger support at the roots of the teeth. Most patients who receive LANAP® report only slight discomfort and minimal bleeding, and many are able to return to work the same day.
