Advanced Periodontics and Dental Implant Center of Connecticut Treats Gum Disease in Monroe, CT for 30 Years
Summary: The team at Advanced Periodontics and Dental Implant Center of Connecticut celebrates their 30th year serving Monroe, CT. Founder and respected periodontist, Dr. Richard Amato, has kept his practice at the forefront of modern technology and minimally invasive care including laser dentistry, same-day dental implant placement, and advanced gum disease treatment.
Monroe, CT— Advanced Periodontics and Dental Implant Center of Connecticut celebrates 30 years of serving Monroe, CT with advanced gum disease treatment and dental implants. Throughout this time, founder Dr. Richard Amato has stayed at the forefront of innovative technology, providing the most cutting-edge treatment available for his patients, from minimally invasive laser dentistry to same-day full mouth dental implant treatment.
Dr. Amato started his practice on December 1, 1989, when he rented a small space from an orthodontist who worked on the other side of the building. At that time, Dr. Amato’s practice had one part-time employee and was only open two half-days per week. Seven years later, they purchased their own 692 square foot space, expanding to two operatories and a three day a week schedule. The practice expanded again in 2000, 2014, and 2017, and now operates in a 3000 square foot practice with seven treatment rooms, a consultation area, call center, private offices, and a team locker room.
In addition to an expanse of space, shifts in technology have also created immense growth for this practice. It began with digital radiology and has grown to include an i-CAT cone beam scanner for guided dental implant placement, PIEZOSURGERY®, and the award-winning 3Shape TRIOS® Intraoral Scanner.
In 2010, Dr. Amato added FDA-approved LANAP® laser gum surgery to his suite of available treatments. A minimally invasive laser dentistry treatment, LANAP not only removes all tissue affected by gum disease, but it promotes healthy gum tissue regeneration as well. In 2014, Dr. Amato pioneered the introduction of the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique into Connecticut. Another minimally invasive treatment, the Pinhole Technique can reverse the condition of gum recession caused by advanced gum disease through revolutionary gum grafting techniques.
Last year, the practice welcomed board-certified Diplomate of Periodontology and Dental Implant Surgery, Dr. Michael Kang, to the team, giving them the opportunity to impact more lives throughout the Monroe, CT community. The office is now open Monday through Friday with extended hours, starting as early as 8 AM and remaining open as late as 7 PM. “This is to accommodate our busy patients’ schedules,” Dr. Amato explains. Thrilled to recount all that has developed in the last 30 years, Dr. Amato adds, “We are poised and ready to grow some more. We can’t wait to see what new technology will happen in the next 30 years!”
