Surgically Clean Air Purifiers
IMPrESS Perio Implant Center uses Surgically Clean Air high end premium purifiers to remove toxins, pollutants and airborne contaminants from our office. By using a six-stage purification system of filters and UV lights, we ensure that the air you breathe is clean, healthy and odour free. Stages 1 and 2 remove large and microscopic air contaminates. Stage 3 absorbs unhealthy odours, chemicals and gases. Stages 4 and 5 kill bacteria and viruses, while stage 6 re-energizes the clean air before circulating it back into the room. Breath easy. The air at IMPrESS Perio Implant Center is pure and clean, with your health in mind.
At IMPrESS Perio Implant Center, patient health and safety is our number one priority. We go to great lengths to make sure that the care you receive is in as clean an environment as possible, we have invested in state of the art sterilization and infection control procedures.
is a form of x-ray imaging where digital X-ray sensors are used instead of traditional photographic film. Advantages include time efficiency through bypassing chemical processing and the ability to digitally transfer and enhance images. Also less radiation can be used to produce an image of similar contrast to conventional radiography. Instead of X-ray film, digital radiography uses a digital image capture device (sensor). This gives advantages of immediate image preview and availability as well as the ability to apply special image processing techniques that enhance overall display of the image.
Cone Beam CT Scanning & Computer Guided Implant Planning
is becoming the standard of care in dental implantology. This 3D radiographic image provides a detailed mapping of the anatomy so that implants can be placed more quickly, more accurately, and with a much higher level of comfort and safety. Quality, predicability and reliability of treatment is our priority at IMPrESS Perio Implant Center. In implant dentistry, we are able to provide all that with the use of the CT scan and planning software.
The Variosurge surgical unit is used by Dr. Noroozi during surgical procedures where bone needs to be altered while preserving soft tissue, nerves. and arteries. It has the highest power on the market and insures fast and safe bone surgery. This technology is less detrimental to bone healing than the traditional use of rotary instruments. Read more…
Piezoelectric Ultrasonic Technology
offers low power settings which enable clinicians to use the thinnest tips; with uses ranging from routine preventative care to severe periodontal cases. These ultrasonic scaling units provide gentle tartar removal with the least amount of water and temperature sensitivity, which is appreciated by our patients! Our hygienists and Dr. Noroozi utilize these piezo scalers which we believe to be superior in terms of performance and patient comfort.
AIR FLOW PERIO®
Air polishing is a procedure which uses air and water pressure to deliver a controlled stream of specially processed sodium bicarbonate or glycine powders in a slurry through the handpiece nozzle. Fine particles of powders are propelled by compressed air in a warm spray and directed onto the surfaces of the teeth. This pressurized jet of air, water and powder removes surface stains, plaque and other soft deposits such as food particles trapped in between the teeth. Indications for the use of air polishing devices include general post-scaling prophylaxis, cleaning of deep fissures, interproximal cleaning, surface cleaning (stains and dental plaque removal), surface cleaning, tooth cleaning before fluoridation, and removal of temporary cement residues. The literature overwhelmingly supports the use of an air polishing device as an efficient and effective means of removing stain and plaque from tooth surfaces. Air polishing requires less time than traditional polishing methods and is considered an equally safe, sometimes superior, alternative. Most investigators agree that intact enamel surfaces are not damaged when stain removal is performed by means of an air polishing device. In short, air polishing is believed to be the least damaging and most efficient means of removing stain on enamel. Today’s scientific literature on the use of AIR-FLOW in periodontology can be summarized as follows: The indication of the use of AIR-FLOW was expanded by the development of new glycine-based powders. Thus, AIR-FLOW can also be used subgingivally to remove biofilm in the context of periodontal maintenance therapy on natural teeth and implants. Clinical as well as microbial parameters show that AIR-FLOW, compared with other biofilm management methods, is efficient, reliable, safe, time-saving and gentle on tissues. Treatment is also associated with greater patient comfort.
During surgery, Dr. Noroozi utilizes a variety of treatment modalities. Among them are concentrated growth factors such as PRF/L-PRF and/or Emdogain, a protein-based gel that is designed to promote predictable regeneration of lost periodontal hard and soft tissues caused by periodontitis, helping to save and preserve the tooth and also to reconstruct bone for dental implants. GEM 21S® Growth-factor Enhanced Matrix: innovative tissue engineering principles which combine a bioactive protein with a bone stimulating matrix. This completely synthetic grafting system is engineered to stimulate wound healing and bone regeneration by triggering a cascade of molecular events when implanted into the body that continues on even after the implanted material is gone.

Needle Free Anaesthesia with Oraqix
Administered with a blunt-tipped applicator, the fast-acting gel is applied below the gum line within the periodontal pockets. Its numbing effect takes place within 30 seconds and lasts approximately 20 minutes.
At IMPrESS Perio Implant Center, all Treatment rooms are outfitted with a closed water system. This system uses distilled water to prevent waterborne bacteria and viruses. There is no better way to have control of dental water lines than with the use of self-contained water bottles on the dental units. This system is configured to feed distilled water to the handpieces, syringes, and ultrasonic scalers. Why is this done? Simply stated, it is to have control of water quality. Through the water bottles, we can also deliver sterilizing chemicals that can kill hazardous biofilms. Ultimately, the quality of water delivered to the patient’s mouth is the best, cleanest and healthiest water we can provide.
We’ve taken the fear, anxiety and pain out of dentistry. Intravenous sedation is an excellent example of our efforts to bring you the latest technology and help you to have a pleasant experience in our office.
Periowave is a painless, non-invasive photodisinfection procedure that can significantly improve treatment outcomes when combined with scaling and root planing. Periowave eliminates many of the harmful bacteria and toxins associated with periodontal disease. Periowave is approved for the treatment of chronic periodontitis, gingivitis, endodontics, and peri-implantitis disease. It is a non-antibiotic therapy that rapidly destroys gram-negative oral pathogens without pain, heat, or surgery. Unlike thermal lasers that cut tissue, Periowave utilizes a cold (non-thermal) diode laser. It does not cause damage to root surfaces, dental materials, or surrounding tissues. Periowave does not exhibit many of the issues commonly associated with antibiotics, such as bacterial resistance, allergic or sensitivity reactions, opportunistic infections, or prolonged doses of medication.
Dr. Noroozi is pleased to be a periodontist in Burnaby Vancouver BC who now offers highly effective BIOLASE WaterLase™ technology in his office. This laser gum surgery system is revolutionizing the way certain dental procedures are performed, including treatments for periodontal disease. Dr. Noroozi now offers BIOLASE WaterLase™ treatments to patients who would like to receive laser gum surgery as an alternative to more traditional oral surgery methods.

is one of the most celebrated, endorsed, and awarded lasers in the industry. Its ease of use makes it the perfect solution for treating soft tissue.
Resonance Frequency Analysis Removes Doubts
Penguin RFA technology at IMPrESS Perio Implant Center, verifies implant to bone integration and monitors the bond between dental implant and surrounding bone. When attached to an implant, the MulTipegTM is forced to vibrate by exciting it with magnetic pulses. The frequency of the vibration is picked up by the instrument and translated into an ISQ scale value between 1 and 99. The higher the ISQ value, the better the stability. RFA measures implant stability as a function of interface stiffness and correlates with implant displacement, i.e. micro-mobility. The ISQ value is determined by the local bone density and is influenced by for instance implant placement technique, implant design and healing time. It seems like implants with low and/or falling ISQ values pose an increased risk for failure compared with implants with high and/or increasing values.
