Cutting Edge Dental Technology

Our Escondido dentist is a firm believer in offering her patients the best care available in dentistry. Keeping pace with proven dental technological advancements makes every service we offer much more effective than what is traditionally possible.

One of the significant technologies used at our Escondido dental practice is the guided implant placement process. With a CT scanner and preplanning software, Dr. Patino can place dental implants into the jaws with superior accuracy, enhancing the effectiveness of the overall implant treatment process. We also use CEREC, an imaging and milling system that allows us to craft and place porcelain crowns in one visit. Additionally, Dr. Patino uses a periodontal laser to help clean out gum disease.
