Fully Equipped for Your Complete Health

Choose the Technology Leader

Dr. Scott Clayhold has been a dental technology trailblazer since he opened our office in 2004. His was the first private practice in the country to utilize the paradigm-shifting CBCT technology, with the first i-CAT™ scanner right here in our own office. An option previously only available at hospital facilities, this enables him to capture highly detailed 3D x-ray images with a fraction of the radiation of conventional equipment. With this technology in hand, he pioneered innovative and novel protocols that are now considered the gold standard of care for oral surgeries and implant treatments. In the time since, he’s continued to invest in advanced dental technologies that make your care quicker, less invasive, and more cost-effective. That includes ultra-precise laser equipment, computer guided planning, digital surgical guides, and more. Come to Dr. Clayhold for treatment with the most advanced technology in the Seattle and the Eastside areas.

Dr. Clayhold backs his advanced technology with impeccable credentials. After medical and dental training, he completed six additional years of education becoming an expert specialist. An acclaimed and accomplished oral and maxillofacial surgeon, he’s trained in both oral surgery as well as medicine. The combination of his expertise and technological capabilities make him best qualified to place dental implants, remove problem wisdom teeth, administer anesthesia services, and provide precise care for even the most complex of cases.

The Technology Behind Exceptional Care

Our practice features state-of-the-art operatories with advanced anesthesia delivery systems and sterilization capabilities. These are fully equipped with the tools to make your treatment a success. Let’s look at a few of them now …

Advanced Healing Protocols

When you get a cut, a scab usually forms over the wound to protect it during healing. Dr. Clayhold uses a similar approach for improving patients’ healing time after treatment. The latest Stem Cell techniques are used, such as Plasma-rich growth factors (PrGF) and platelet-rich fibrin (PrF) both occur naturally in your blood. Dr. Clayhold isolates these elements of your blood and applies them to a treatment area during bone grafting or dental implant placement. The use of your own Stem Cells and biological mediators optimizes your bone and soft tissue healing, enabling your body to heal faster, more predictably, and with less pain and swelling.

Luxar CO2 Laser

The laser has revolutionized dentistry. It’s only natural that Dr. Clayhold would use one. Using his CO2 laser, he can perform some procedures without picking up a scalpel or applying sutures. He can sanitize areas as he precisely removes problematic tissue. Dr. Clayhold uses the laser on the soft tissues of the mouth (during sleep apnea treatment, for example) and on facial skin (for reducing acne and scarring). With any of these procedures you experience less pain, less bleeding, and a shorter recovery time due to the laser.

i-CAT FLX CT Scanner

You may be familiar with CT scanners from medical application, but you’re probably not familiar with this kind. The cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) scanner works at a lightning-fast speed. Often just seconds. What’s more, it operates with a fraction of the radiation output of comparable equipment. There’s no better way to capture high-definition 3D x-ray images of your mouth. The CBCT enables Dr. Clayhold to quickly diagnose your condition and plan out your treatment. If you need dental implants, don’t consider any dental practice without one.

Surgical Guides

When placing dental implants, getting the exact location and angle right are critical to a comfortable fit and reliable performance. With customized surgical guides—which Dr. Clayhold creates himself right here—all the guesswork is taken out of the equation. He collects the information he needs while performing your examination and imaging. When it comes time to place your implants, he slips your guide over your gums. From there, precise placement is as easy as inserting implant posts through the holes in the guide. The results speak for themselves.
