About the Practice
Expert Gum Disease and Dental Implant Treatments
As a periodontist, Dr. Anzalone is a dental specialist that is highly trained in the diagnosis and treatment of any problems with the gum, bone and other tissues supporting the teeth. He is also a specialist in the placement of dental implants to replace broken-down or missing teeth.
We opened our office in Monroe in 2006, and have, since the beginning, been dedicated to providing the highest-quality treatment in a friendly and welcoming atmosphere while giving our patients the best in personal care. Dr. Anzalone provides expert minimally invasive gum disease treatment, gum recession treatments, cosmetic gum treatments and full dental implant services.
Skilled, Experienced Specialist
Dr. Anzalone is a highly skilled and experienced periodontist who stays current with the latest developments in technology through regular continuing education. He trains other dentists and has published two books that educate patients about periodontal treatments—The Truth About Dental Implants and The Consumer’s Guide to Safe, Anxiety-Free Dental Surgery.
Dr. Anzalone is a board-certified periodontist, an honor awarded to those who have demonstrated knowledge and skill well beyond the mandatory educational requirements of the specialty. Board certification can only be earned after passing comprehensive and rigorous examinations on all aspects of periodontics, and has only been achieved by approximately 10 percent of periodontists in the United States. Dr. Anzalone is the only board-certified periodontist in Northeast Louisiana.
Minimally Invasive Dental Implant Placement
Dr. Anzalone uses advanced technology to make dental implant placement accurate, efficient and minimally invasive. For diagnostics and treatment planning, he uses advanced panoramic digital X-rays that provide a detailed overview of your entire mouth and jawbone structure.
For complex cases or when placing implants to replace an entire arch of teeth, he will arrange for you to receive a dental 3D CT scan at a nearby facility. CT scans provide highly detailed, 360-degree views of your teeth, jaw and surrounding structures. Dr. Anzalone uses these advanced 3D images to precisely map out where to place your implants for maximum stability.
When placing multiple implants, Dr. Anzalone creates a surgical guide that fits over your dental arch and marks the exact angle and placement position for each implant. The surgical guide assists him to provide minimally invasive, efficient and precise surgery.
State-of-the-Art Treatment for Receding Gums
Dr. Anzalone uses advanced materials and minimally invasive techniques to correct gum recession and restore proper gum coverage around the teeth. For many patients, Dr. Anzalone can restore root coverage without any gum grafting. He is one of the few practitioners in the United States certified to deliver the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique, a breakthrough treatment for gum recession that requires no surgical incisions, no grafts, and no sutures. It can restore a natural gum line for up to 14 teeth at a time in just a couple of hours.
