Did you know that not all periodontists have adopted new, proven technologies? There are many reasons for this. In some cases, they simply are not aware of everything that is available. In other cases, they do not want to invest in paying for equipment that can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Dr. Leavitt is a native of Las Vegas, who earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Medical Biology at the University of Utah. He graduated cum laude from Temple University School of Dentistry, where he received numerous awards in research and clinical achievement. After graduating dental school, he was accepted into the University of Alabama at Birmingham’s Periodontology program, where he received training in multiple surgical and medical disciplines. Dr. Leavitt received dual certificates in Periodontology from UAB, and from the Birmingham Veterans Affairs hospital.
Dr. Leavitt enjoys teaching, and has lectured to large groups concerning soft tissue augmentation techniques, digitally guided surgery and ridge augmentation techniques. He is also an adjunct professor at the University of Nevada School of Medicines dental GPR program.
Dr. Leavitt has interests in esthetic gingival surgery, bone augmentation, and dental implant surgery, and attends and lectures at multiple meetings each year to provide cutting edge technology and techniques for the benefit of his patients.
At our facility, we believe that any technologies that help us provide you with more efficient, comfortable, and reliable results are worth the investment. This makes us a little different than traditional periodontal offices in Las Vegas. It is also why so many patients trust us with their periodontal needs.
Some of our favorite leading edge tools include:Find out more by calling us at 702-984-2577 to schedule your initial consultation with Dr. Curry Leavitt.
This handheld tool takes the place of old-fashioned metal cutting devices. We are able to perform laser gum surgery using the WaterLase® iPlus™ 2.0, often without as much anesthetic because of the speed of the equipment.
The laser also cauterizes as it cuts away diseased gum tissues, leaving healthy, sanitized tissue behind that heals rapidly. Additionally, the WaterLase® iPlus™ 2.0 is invaluable for combatting the effects of peri-implantitis, the inflammation of the area around dental implants.
Using dental implant technology, we can give some candidates an instant smile! Rather than having to wait months for their dental implant site to heal, they can enjoy same-day teeth. The prosthetic teeth are loaded to the posts during implant surgery, changing patients’ facial features immediately.
Dental fear is a real concern for many people. To help combat dental anxiety, we offer sedation dentistry techniques. These include oral sedation, local anesthetic, and nitrous oxide.
We also have onsite IV anesthetic, monitored by Dr. Curry Leavitt during more complex treatments like dental implant surgery.
From the types of dental implants we utilize to our incredible laser gum surgery, we offer options that will amaze you and improve your oral health.
When you make your appointment with us by calling (702) 834-8900, ask to see our world-class equipment during your initial visit. Some of the tools that we use include:
For people who are missing a complete upper or lower arch of teeth (or both arches), same-day dental implants can be a life-changing choice. Same-day implants allow you to fix the most common issues related to having missing teeth, including:
There are several keys to achieving a successful dental implantation. One of them is knowing exactly where to place the titanium-based dental implant posts in the jawbone. Dr. Curry Leavitt trusts the GALILEOS® cone beam and its incredible technology to provide insightful images that help guide his final placement decision.
The GALILEOS® cone beam takes incredibly detailed images of the soft and hard tissues in your mouth. These visuals pinpoint the ideal spots for surgical implantation. Without the GALILEOS® cone beam, Dr. Leavitt would have to rely on less accurate methods to determine where your bone mass is strongest to support a single dental implant, denture, bridge, or another prosthesis.
