In dentistry, new technologies constantly change the way procedures are performed and illnesses are prevented. At Issaquah Highlands Dental Group, a team of specialists provides the highest level of care and latest technologies in one location. Led by Dr. Bill McGlashan, the dental practice is designed to make dental treatment more convenient. The practice can even do crowns in about two hours.
Issaquah Highlands Dental Group is home to three general dentists, as well as an oral surgeon, periodontist and endodontist. By combining many specialties, the practice offers patients convenient scheduling and consultations, which results in fewer return visits. For example, the practice has integrated CEREC CAD/CAM technology (computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing) to offer patients same-day crowns. With CAD/CAM, patients do not require traditional impressions, a temporary restoration or a second appointment.
“Our goal is to reduce delays so our patients don’t have to take extra time off work, visit different offices across town or spend weeks waiting for a lab,” explains Dr. McGlashan. “With many specialists in one office, there’s no time lost in terms of communication, consultations or the transfer of records. Less waiting means less anxiety and discomfort, resulting in a better experience for every patient. Our team at Issaquah Highlands Dental Group is honored to offer the community state-of-the-art, modern dentistry at a reasonable price – and in a beautiful location.”
At Issaquah Highlands Dental Group, those seeking periodontal care can be treated with lasers, which is a non-surgical approach to arresting the progression of gum disease. The dentists also use an intra-oral camera—a tiny video camera that moves around inside of the mouth and generates a tooth by tooth video exam. This makes it easier to understand treatment by seeing what the dentist sees.
In addition to three dentists who specialize in general dentistry, the practice offers:
Oral Surgery (Wisdom Teeth): While the removal of wisdom teeth is the most well-known type of oral surgery, there are many reasons why oral surgery may be required, including repairing or treating serious conditions affecting a patient’s teeth, palate, lips, jaw or face; alleviating problems due to obstructed sleep apnea, infections or facial pain; repairing maxillofacial region damage caused by a serious accident or injury.
Periodontics (Gum Disease): Periodontics is the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of gum disease. Periodontists also perform dental implant surgery and cosmetic periodontal procedures.
Endodontics (Root Canal): An endodontic treatment saves a severely injured, cracked, or decayed tooth when its pulp (the soft inner tissue inside a tooth’s root canal) becomes inflamed or infected. If it is not treated promptly, pain or a tooth abscess (infection) results. Endodontic treatment is also known as a root canal.
Open Monday through Saturday, Issaquah Highlands Dental Group offers early morning and evening appointments, and provides a broad spectrum of general dentistry for patients ages three and up. The dentists can often see patients at very short notice and are available for dental emergencies.
