Our Services during the Covid-19 Pandemic
We are still here for you during this time
As of March 20,2020 The Governor of Florida and the CDC set guidelines for healthcare providers and dentist during this Corona Virus Outbreak.
We are here to see our patients during this challenging time for conditions that exhibit infection, pain, swelling, trauma, and abscess. We will also see you after your surgery treatment (dressing change, stitch removal), for a biopsy of abnormal tissue, for bleeding that doesn't stop, for gum infection with pain or swelling, for a painful tooth extraction, and for painful swelling in or around your mouth. Dr. Bergens will still see you at our Daytona Beach office. We have set up enhanced infection control procedures for your safety- Medical/Surgical Grade Sanitizing, HEPA/UV-C Air Purifiers in each treatment room and one patient per procedure in our office to assure everyone's safety. However, we do understand that you may have some urgent dental needs at this time that do not fall into the above categories.
We are providing teledentistry at this time via our secure web platform so that you can still receive dental guidance for urgent but not non-emergent dental situations. Please call our office to set up your teledentistry appointment with Dr. Bergens if needed. We are here for you and your families through these difficult times.
Be Well, Dr. Bergens and Staff
We congratulate you on taking the first step toward better periodontal health.
Our Practice is focused on your dental health. We will treat our patients as we treat our families, with respect, dignity and unconditional care. Our patients are the heart of our practice and the reason we are here. Being of service to our patients is the definition of our purpose and the mission of our practice.
We offer many specialty Periodontal Services including:
Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with confidence, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved.
Periodontal disease, or gum disease, is an infection of the gums caused by dental plaque. Gradually, periodontal disease will destroy the gum and bone structures needed to support natural teeth. Many times, the early stages of periodontal disease are best treated by non-surgical periodontal therapy. Our practice is conservative in the treatment of periodontal disease, limiting periodontal surgery to areas where it is absolutely necessary. Proper periodontal treatment will restore your healthy smile.
Laser dentistry is one of dentistry's latest advances. The laser procedure LANAP(Laser-assisted New Attachment Procedure) is an alternative to traditional gum surgery. It can be done in one office visit with minimal discomfort and bleeding. The treatment is not a cut and sew procedure therefore healthy gum tissues are not injured and you rarely have sensitivity. Your gums will look and be healthier.
Pinhole Surgical Technique
The Chao Pinhole® Surgical Techniqueis a minimally invasive option for treating gum recession. Unlike traditional grafting techniques, PST™ is scalpel and suture free. Traditional gum recession treatments involve the use of donor tissue or soft tissue grafts in order to rebuild the gumline. This soft tissue would be sutured in place and would join with existing gum tissue as it healed. While this traditional grafting treatment is effective, comparable results with better patient experience can be achieved through the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique.
