Our practice utilizes state-of-the-art technology and a modern facility with the most technologically advanced techniques and sterile equipment.

Sterile Technique
Sterile technique is the effort taken to keep patients as free from micro-organisms as possible. It is a method used to prevent contamination of wounds and other susceptible sites by organisms that could cause infection. This can be achieved by ensuring that only sterile equipment and fluids are used during procedures.

Prior to an implant or bone grafting procedure the assistant will instruct the patient on changing into a gown, hair covering and shoe covers and will have the patient rinse their mouth out with a bacteria killing mouth wash. After the surgical site has been numbed or I.V. sedation administered the assistant will apply an antibacterial solution (Betadine) to the skin of the face and neck to ensure that the area is free of infection causing germs. Dr. Lem then “drapes” the patient or covers the patient with sterile towels and a sheet that are all germ free. Also, all of the instruments used for the procedure are opened onto a sterile tray and without being touched by non-sterile hands. Prior to beginning the procedure both Dr.Lem and his assistant change into sterile gloves.
i-CAT Imaging
This revolutionary computer x-ray provides an in-office three-dimensional scan of the face and jaws. Cone beam technology has brought high-definition images with 90% less radiation compared to hospital scanners.
The i-CAT improves care for:

  • Implant surgery
  • TMJ disorders
  • Trauma
  • Sinus pathology
  • Jaw cysts or tumors

CT is a medical imaging technique that uses a computer to obtain cross-sectional images of the head or neck. This gives Dr. Lem a more detailed view of the bone and soft tissue to better diagnose and treat patients. Regular x-ray films cannot show volume of the bone. The patient needs to sit upright for 8.5 seconds to complete the scan.

News & Events

Stem cells are cells found in most, if not all, multi-cellular organisms. They are characterized by the ability to renew themselves through mitotic cell division and differentiating into a diverse range of specialized cell types.

A research suggests that coating dental implants with a synthetic bone material prior to implantation allows such implant to become incorporated much more successfully into the jaw, leading to smiles all round.

The results of experiments that focused on 'nanostructures'demonstrated enhanced bone response to dental implants as soon as 4 weeks after implant placement.
