Dr. Perlman uses state-of-the-art technology for accurate diagnosis, precise treatment planning and minimally invasive treatments.
Dental laser for gentle and precise gum treatment
Dr. Perlman uses the Millennium Periolase dental laser to effectively remove 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 and quicker recovery time.
3D CT Scanner
Our cone beam 3D CT scanner provides both high-quality digital panoramic X-rays and 3D images of your teeth, gum and jaws. Panoramic X-rays capture a complete and accurate image of your entire mouth. The CT scanner generates a virtual 3D model of your jaw area that can be viewed from any angle. These images help Dr. Perlman to accurately evaluate your jawbone and tooth structure for dental implant and bone graft procedures.
The 3D images provide Dr. Perlman with the information to create surgical guides. This is a template that fits over your dental arch and shows the precise location and angle where implants are to be placed. This allows Dr. Perlman to plan exact treatment steps in advance, thereby eliminating unnecessary cutting and suturing.
Precise Dental Implant Placement
Using a state-of-the-art electric dental implant handpiece system, Dr. Perlman is able to perform the complete implant procedure seamlessly – from preparing the implant to final placement. Procedures are more precise with less noise and vibration. It’s a quiet and efficient way to ensure exact placement of your new dental implants.
High-speed digital X-rays emit far less radiation than conventional X-rays, and provide Dr. Perlman with highly detailed images of your gums and teeth. Digital X-rays can be displayed on a monitor so that Dr. Perlman can show you any problem areas and discuss treatment options.
We use ultrasonic scalers to quickly and gently remove the plaque and calculus that has accumulated on your teeth and below your gum line. Ultrasonic scalers use high-frequency vibrations that clean deeper and faster than traditional scaling instruments. The vibrational strength can also be adjusted for patient comfort.
Air Polishing for the tough stains
Sometimes, traditional cleaning techniques don’t remove all the stains, especially the stubborn ones left behind by coffee, soda or smoking. Our air polishing system uses a powerful stream of water and sodium bicarbonate to remove debris and stubborn stains from even the most difficult-to-reach areas.

One way he ensures his patients’ comfort is by using The Wand® Anesthesia System which delivers a computer-regulated flow of anesthesia precisely to the exact part of the mouth being treated.
