Despite limitations to in-person education amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Dr. Sanchez remains at the forefront of his field through online and virtual continuing education courses.
Eden Prairie, MN (PRWEB) July 20, 2020
Board-certified periodontist Dr. Andres Sanchez recently attended the Virtual Osteology Symposium USA. This two-day event was presented as a live webinar and focused on soft and hard tissue techniques for the long-term health of natural teeth as well as the lasting success of dental implants. Dr. Sanchez is excited to bring the knowledge he acquired back to his practice and begin implementing the latest techniques for his patients.
As a periodontal specialist, Dr. Sanchez has advanced training in gum health and implantology. Board certification as a periodontist demonstrates his added dedication to keeping current with all the newest treatments and techniques in the field, as verified by the American Board of Periodontology. Despite limitations to in-person education amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Dr. Sanchez remains at the forefront of his field through online and virtual continuing education courses. This dedication to periodontology stems from his passion to offer truly minimally invasive, effective, and predictable care to his community.
During the Virtual Osteology Symposium USA, leaders in periodontology reviewed cutting-edge research in soft tissue and bone augmentation techniques. Healthy soft tissues seal out disease-causing bacteria and work alongside bone tissue to support natural teeth from shifting or falling out. These same tissues help ensure the success of dental implants after implant placement. A balanced and even gumline can make the difference between a failing dental implant and a beautiful and complete smile that lasts for years to come.
Before dental implants are placed, Dr. Sanchez will also examine the health of each patient’s jawbone, evaluating bone volume and density. If the bone is too weak to support dental implants, he provides bone grafting or augmentation treatments to rebuild the jawline to a healthier state.
Effective soft tissue grafting has cosmetic applications as well, allowing patients to reclaim their smile esthetics. Many patients who need gum grafting have uneven gumlines that are highly noticeable when they smile. If left untreated receding gums can even lead to loose and shifting teeth eventually causing tooth loss.
Together, periodontist Dr. Sanchez and prosthodontist Dr. Eleni Voltidi offer collaborative, expert-level dental implant treatment in one convenient location. From treatments to help patients qualify for implants including bone grafting, gum grafting, and tooth extractions, to implant placement and final restorations, comprehensive dental implant treatment is possible from PerioWest.
