About the Practice
State-of-the-Art Dental Implant and Gum Disease Treatment
We are a periodontal practice, specializing in the treatment of everything to do with your gums and the bone surrounding your teeth. Our doctors, Dr. Gary Perlman and Dr. Raul Molina, are highly qualified experts in dental implant services and gum disease treatment, as well as cosmetic gum procedures that beautify your smile.
We have been practicing in the Jacksonville area since 1989, and have been in our modern and beautiful location since 1995. We incorporate state-of-the-art, minimally invasive technological advances in periodontics to provide our patients the most efficient treatment with the best possible results.
We pride ourselves on the personal care and consideration we show each of our patients. Our staff is comprised of highly trained and experienced professionals who are here to make your dental procedure as comfortable and stress-free as possible.
Experts in Dental Implants and Gum Treatment
Our doctors are highly trained and skilled periodontists. They use the latest breakthroughs and techniques to prevent, diagnose and treat gum disease, place dental implants and perform bone and soft tissue grafting procedures.
With the help of laser technology, ultrasonic cleaning tools, and digital imaging capabilities, our doctors are able to use advanced diagnostic tools and minimally invasive procedures to treat patients in an effective and efficient manner.
Drs. Perlman and Molina use a dental laser to eliminate gum disease quickly and effectively, our hygienists use ultrasonic scalers for thorough yet gentle cleanings, and a state-of-the-art imaging system provides our doctors with 3D images of your entire jawbone to precisely plan your dental implant treatment.
Comfortable, gentle treatment
We have your total comfort and well-being in mind at all times. Our doctors have a reassuring chairside manner and a genuine concern that their patients feel at ease. Our friendly staff are always there for you—before, during and after your treatment.
We do everything possible to make your treatments as comfortable and pain-free as possible. For local anesthesia, we use a computer-regulated injection system that keeps you comfortable during your treatment. We also offer oral sedation and nitrous oxide if you need stress alleviation during the procedure.
We offer the innovative LANAP® laser gum disease procedure to treat gum disease, and are also one of the first periodontal practices to perform the revolutionary Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique as a minimally invasive treatment procedure for receding gums.
Minimally invasive gum disease and gum recession treatment
Drs. Perlman and Molina use the LANAP dental laser to treat gum disease by targeting bacteria and diseased tissue without harming surrounding healthy tissue. Because there is no cutting or sutures involved, your gum treatment is more efficient and more comfortable, with less post-treatment discomfort.
Dr. Perlman is one of the pioneering practitioners in the innovative Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique for the treatment of receding gums. The pinhole technique uses specialized tools and techniques to repair a receding gumline, without the need of painful incisions or sutures. The entire mouth can even be treated in just one visit.
Precise Dental Implant treatment
Dental implants are the most stable and longest lasting option for replacing missing teeth, and they are the closest you can get to recreating healthy, natural teeth. Our doctors precisely plan the placement of your dental implants, using our CT scanner to produce detailed 3D images of your teeth, gums and jawbone. These images allow the doctors to plan your implant procedure without the need for exploratory cutting of the gums.
Our doctors partner with excellent dentists and prosthodontists—specialists in creating artificial teeth—who will create the high-quality crowns, bridges and dentures that attach to the implants.
