Professional Services Provided Implant Dentistry:

  Dr. Damascus and his staff have been providing dental implant services for his patients for more than

22 years. Through this time we have achieved an extremely high degree of success and currently find

approximately 98% success of the implants placed at our office. There is little in medicine and dentistry

that can offer a patient such an outstanding success rate. An important reason for this achievement is

the uncompromising approach to patient care. Adequate care is given to the diagnosis and the

development of a course of treatment. Ample surgical time is always allowed as some implant treatments

need extra time once care has started. Patients often thank us post-surgically for the relaxed, gentle and

pain free service they receive. Another important factor in our success is the use of only the top name

brand dental implant systems. Many companies sell dental implants which do not have the research or

long term studies indicating long term success.  Other companies sell inexpensive implants

manufactured in China.  Many doctors use these systems due to their “low cost”, but would you want

these placed in your mouth?  Unfortunately, these generics implants generally do not provide the same

level of service to the patient as the name brand systems used in our office. There are few problems

through the years with dental implants and we often see our patients enjoying the use of their implants

10, 15 and 20 years later. The surgeon and implant system used makes a big difference in the outcome

of your treatment. Don’t leave your care to chance.

Ridge Augmentation Procedures:

  Many patients who need and desire implant dentistry unfortunately do not have adequate jaw bone for

their placement. Doctor Damascus has been helping these patients with ridge augmentation procedures.

Essentially Dr. Damascus re-grows the lost jaw bones for patients so that dental implants can be placed

successfully. This is a service our office has been providing for patients for approximately 17 years. Dr.

Damascus is a leader in this field and is asked to lecture to dental organizations and dental schools on

his innovative approaches and techniques. Other implant surgeons often refer patients to Dr. Damascus

for these procedures as many surgeons do not receive the same predictable results as our office. We

invite patients who desire dental implants and have been turned down by other surgeons because "you

do not have enough bone”. We have provided full implant reconstructions to many of these patients and

allowing them “permanent teeth” so they may discard their removable teeth and dentures. The most

important time to consider bone grafting techniques is when a failing tooth needs to be removed. When

a dental implant is to be considered for the replacement of a tooth that needs to be removed, the bone

graft material should be placed at the time of the extraction. This allows the maintenance of the jaw bone

for the future implant placement. The natural response of the jaw to an extraction is to “shrink” often

making the predictable placement of an implant difficult or impossible.

Periodontal Treatment:

  Doctor Damascus has been providing expert periodontal services for his patients for more than 25

years as a specialist. Periodontal disease is a bacterial infection of the gums which leads to the loss of

the jaw bone holding the teeth and eventual loss of teeth. This is also the primary cause of “receding

gums”. Doctor Damascus has been able to help many patients maintain poor and questionable teeth for

over 20 years and far longer than promised the patient at the initiation of care. The proper diagnosis,

expert surgical techniques and use of the outstanding bone graft materials has helped our patients

maintain their teeth. Another growing field in Periodontics is cosmetic periodontal services for severely

receded gums or thick and overgrown gums. Should you have these conditions and are unhappy with

the appearance of your smile consult our services and see how we can help you.  Dr. Damascus also

treats many periodontal conditions with the use of a dental laster.  This helps correct problems not

possible with conventional surgical techniques.  This also helps Dr. Damascus treat patients who have a

significant heart condition or are medically compromised.

Dental Hygiene:

  Following periodontal care, maintenance therapy is very important for the long term success and

survival of the teeth. The dental hygienist for the practice, Stacey Croce has been employed for more

than 20 years and is an expert in the field. She has developed thousands of professional relationships

with patients with her thorough and caring approach to patient care. She is an important part in

maintaining patients teeth following periodontal treatment. Periodontal patients are recommended to

have four maintenance visits a years seeing both our office and their general dentist office. This

approach has been confirmed in the dental literature for more than 25 years and is why so many

patients expectations are exceeded and are able to "keep their teeth."  Stacey has been instrumental in

this avenue of care.
