Dr. Goldberg Now Offers New and Exciting Stem Cell Therapy

OsteocelIt is not uncommon for bone loss of the jaw to occur as a result of periodontal disease and infections of the teeth. In the past, our goal has been to halt the progression of the disease process, but now there are more and better ways to grow back bone.

A new stem cell therapy known as Osteocel has proven to be very effective for regenerating bone. We are now using this new and exciting technique in our office. This, again, puts Dr. Goldberg in the forefront of implant and periodontal regeneration therapies.

Dr. Goldberg Introduces 3-D Dental Imaging for Better Patient Care

Dr. Goldberg is enhancing treatment planning and patient care with the advanced digital imaging technology of the Gendex GXCB-500.

Dr. Goldberg is now using the latest in dental imaging technology, the GXCB-500, a cone Beam 3-D dental imaging system. Cone Beam technology is quickly advancing the dental industry’s leading approach to treatment planning and diagnosis. With a quick scan around the head, Dr. Goldberg can now view 3-D patient anatomy to accomplish, more evaluation for predictable treatment results in shorter appointment times for the patient.

 

Using Dentistry’s Most Accurate Imaging


Dr. Goldberg has chosen this technology to enhance treatment care for patients in the Central Jersey area. Using the GXCB-500 scanner’s high resolution images, he obtains highly accurate and detailed 3-D views of all anatomies such as bone, teeth, tooth orientation, tooth and nerve relation, airways and sinuses. This 3-D dental imaging is used for implant planning, TMJ and airway analysis, orthodontic and oral surgery planning, and to detect pathologies such as cysts and tumors.

 

Safety and Convenience for Patients


Dr. Goldberg can now take an immediate scan for patients with lower radiation dosage and without the inconvenience of sending them to a hospital. Once the scan is complete, he is able to share an immediate visual diagnosis to help patients truly visualize and better understand treatment options. These preoperative scans are easily shared with other doctors helping Dr. Goldberg perform less invasive procedures through increased precision, thus reducing risks to patients.

“This technology greatly improves diagnostic skills and minimizes surgical risks while shortening surgical time.”  David A. Goldberg, DMD ICAT_006_lg

Piezosurgery

Osseous surgery has been an unchanging component of periodontal therapy since the inception of the high-speed handpiece in the early 1960s. FDA approved piezosurgery is a new modality developed to contour supporting bone around teeth as well as to remove bone without damaging soft tissue. http://www.piezosurgery.us/concept.htm

Imagine a plaster cast on your arm that needs to be removed. With piezosurgery, the cutting blade does not rotate like normal saw blades, it vibrates. The hard cast is vibrated away, but when it meets the skin, the soft tissue vibrates at the same rate as the cutting blade and is, therefore, not injured. In the case of a spinal cord injury, the vertebrae can be vibrated away without damaging the soft tissue of the spinal nerves.

This innovative method is well suited for oral surgery where there are many soft tissue structures, such as nerves and sinus tissue. Piezosurgery, developed by Mectron Electronics and Dr. Tomaso Vercelotti, was recently approved by the FDA after being used in Europe for the past 4 years.

Since studying with Dr. Vercelotti, Dr. Goldberg has become the first practitioner in North America to employ this technology, which is rapidly gaining acceptance in the U.S.

 

GEM 21S®

Turning back the hands of time continues to be the goal of all health care. When bone loss occurs due to periodontal diseases, there is now greater success regrowing the lost bone.

The first approved genetically engineered healing protein, GEM 21S, is now being used by Dr. Goldberg to regrow bone more quickly and effectively. http://www.osteohealth.com/GEM%2021%20Home.html
