Treatment: If you or a loved one
has been diagnosed with Periodontal
(Gum) Disease and have been told
that you need surgery, there is a More Comfortable, Less Invasive Alternative - LANAP. Utilizing the FDA approved Periolase,
and the patented LANAP procedure, Dr Hood is able to treat moderate to
severe periodontal disease without the
use of scalpels or the cutting away of
any gum tissue. According to the American Academy
of Periodontology, when the lasers are used
properly during periodontal therapy there can
less bleeding, swelling and discomfort
to the patient during surgery. Dr Hood is one of the first 2 Dentists that were licensed and certified for this advanced treatment, in the City of Phoenix.

research, "The laser cavity detector finds
up to 100% of the most common cavity while the
majority of the dentists, still using the pick
or explorer, are currently missing 76% of this
form of cavity.
Abrasion: This technology allows
us to be minimally invasive when treating the
cavities detected by the Laser Cavity Detector
and in many cases the fillings can be done without
Wireless Intra-Oral Camera allows
you to "see what the dentist sees" in
