So many of my patients come in after many years of persistent dental problems, not knowing if they have any hope of restoring their smiles. If too many of their teeth are damaged or missing, they feel like there’s nothing they can do and try and push the problems under the rug. If this sounds like you, please, please come see me! Regardless of how bad your dental health is, we have options for restoring your smile and health. Helen and I talked about two recent cases where dental implants were the perfect solution to years of problems that we were able to fix in just a few appointments.
Victoria's Implant Dentures
Victoria came in to Sleep Dentistry Defined just a few months ago without hope that she’d ever smile again. Her heath was declining and she knew her diseased teeth were making her overall health worse, but she didn’t know if there was anything she could do. Dr. Lampee worked with her and her doctors to create a rejuvenation plan that would completely restore her smile – and her life! Now she feels better and has more energy to enjoy time with her kids and grandkids. She looks and feels like a new woman!
Dori's Implant Dentures
Dori has dealt with failing, decayed teeth for decades. Other dentists had encouraged her to keep her old teeth and patch them up one by one. When it became clear to Dori that it wasn’t working and that she’d be better off with a whole new smile, she called Sleep Dentistry Defined. In just a day of surgery and four months from beginning to end, Dori has a completely transformed smile! The decay in her mouth has been completely removed, and she absolutely loves her new teeth!
Fighting Gum Disease with Periolase
I recently spoke with Helen Raptis on AMNW about a disease that affects millions of Americans – gum disease. While it is a common disease, fighting it in the past meant invasive oral surgery using scalpels and stitches – not something that any patient wants to hear! But with our new Periolase MVP-7 laser, we can fight gum disease without resorting to the painful treatment tools of the past. I take Helen on a tour of the mouth to show her exactly what we can do with this revolutionary tool. Watch it now to see just how easy restoring tooth and gum tissue can be!
Periolase Gum Disease Treatment
This time on AM Northwest, I share an incredible tool that I use to treat gum disease – the Periolase! It is a specialized laser that helps rid the mouth of bacteria that causes all kinds of health issues and damages teeth and gums.
The Periolase laser replaces traditional surgical treatment of gum disease, which to be honest is not very fun! The Periolase allows us to remove bacteria quickly and efficiently with just a local anesthetic, and it actually allows new, healthy bone and gum tissue to grow in the place of damaged tissue!
Dental Health During Cancer Treatment
Helen Raptis and I talk about an important topic for my patients who are or have recently undergone treatment for cancer. The two most common treatments – radiation and chemotherapy – can take a huge toll on your teeth. We discuss the negative effects of these treatments, and some easy ways to mitigate the damage to your teeth during and after treatment. We also talk about some transformative ways to restore your teeth if major damage has been done.
Overview of Implant Dentures
Today on AM Northwest, Helen and I discussed the benefits of implant dentures over traditional dentures, and the different ways they can be done. So many of my patients have regained the ability to chew and talk, and have regained the confidence lost with their original teeth!
Fixing Old Mercury Silver Fillings
Many of my patients come to me (sometimes after many years without seeing a dentist) with a very common issue – deteriorating old fillings. They used to be made with mercury and silver – but not anymore! With the latest porcelain fillings and implants, we can remove those metals from your mouth for good. Porcelain not only looks better, but it is strong and durable too.
Infections and Your Health
Many patients are surprised when I tell them that neglecting dental health can cause issues elsewhere in the body. That’s because your body works as a complete system: if one part of this system becomes weak or infected, other areas often have to do double-duty when it comes to fighting infection and trying to heal the body.

I joined Helen Raptis on AM Northwest recently to talk about the best way to restore your smile – a Lampee Rejuvenation! It’s the method that we’ve developed at Sleep Dentistry Defined to completely restore a smile that may have been damaged by long term health problems, lots of small issues over the years, or even past dental work that isn’t holding up as well as it should.
This time on AM Northwest, I spoke with Helen Raptis about an extremely useful procedure that we specialize in at Sleep Dentistry Defined: dental implants! Dental implants are used when a tooth – or several teeth – are damaged beyond repair and need to be replaced. By fitting anywhere from one to eight implants, we can permanently anchor new, porcelain implants that feel and look fantastic!
Rhys' Lampee Rejuvenation
One of our outstanding patients, Rhys, just had dental implants done with a Lampee Rejuvenation at Sleep Dentistry Defined. In just a couple of appointments we completely rejuvenated his smile! Rhys is so excited to have his smile back!

This time on AM Northwest, Helen and I discuss the causes of and what you can do about receding gums. Its a very common problem, and thankfully, there’s also a simple solution that we have mastered at Sleep Dentistry Defined!
Permanent Dental Implants
This time on AM Northwest, Helen and Dr. Lampee talk about permanent implant dentures! With all-porcelain permanent implant dentures, you get the best feel possible while completely transforming your smile. And by planning your procedure ahead of time, we can now complete the procedure in as little as one day.
Dr Lampee and Patient Helen
This time on AM Northwest, I invited my patient Helen to share her incredible story. Her teeth were badly diseased, but with a few appointments we were able to completely makeover her smile with a set of implant dentures. She not only looks great, but by removing the diseased teeth, Helen is healthier than ever!

Mel was absolutely thrilled with the results, and now enjoys the health benefits – and confidence – of having a completely restored smile!

By tackling all Bill’s dental problems at once instead of fighting infection tooth by tooth, we were able to give him a smile that he can be proud of every day!
