Dental Specialists and Implant Clinic of Iowa
Periodontics | Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery | Endodontics

Elite Specialty Care Through Collaboration


Periodontics | Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery | Endodontics


For many years specialists in our area have followed the traditional model of specialty care working separately within their own practices. As interdisciplinary referrals, and the treatment options available, have become more numerous and complex, Dr.’s Hogg, Kotecki, Moore and Gell have sought to find a unique way to streamline this issue.

For the first time in private practice, in the State of Iowa, the specialties of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, Periodontics, Endodontics and Dental Implantology will operate under the same roof, a true "union of forces" as described by Dr. William Mayo.

"The best interest of the patient is the only interest to be considered, and in order that the sick may have the benefit of advancing knowledge, union of forces is necessary."
William J. Mayo, MD 1910
With a grand total of 13,500 square feet, our dental community will have access to a state-of-the-art facility for Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, Periodontics, Endodontics and Dental Implantology.

Periodontics

Periodontics

Periodontics focuses on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases that affect the supporting structures of the teeth. Periodontal disease includes gingivitis, a milder form characterized by inflamed gums, and more severe forms like periodontitis, which can lead to tooth loss if left untreated.

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery (OMS) is a specialized branch of dentistry that focuses on the diagnosis and surgical treatment of a wide range of conditions affecting the mouth, jaws, face, and neck. Oral and maxillofacial surgeons are highly trained dental professionals who undergo extensive education and clinical training to perform various surgical procedures related to these areas.

Endodontics

Endodontics

Endodontics specializes in the treatment of dental pulp and the tissues surrounding the roots of teeth. The most common procedure associated with endodontics is root canal therapy. This treatment becomes necessary when the dental pulp becomes infected or inflamed, often due to deep decay, dental trauma, or other dental issues.

Procedures



Tooth loss is incredibly common, and dental implants are generally the best way to address it. Dental implants function as artificial tooth roots, providing a safe and secure way to anchor dental prostheses. Not only do dental implants provide a fully functional and aesthetic restoration, but with the right oral hygiene, they can potentially last a lifetime. We are pleased to provide dental implant surgery.

Esthetic gingival surgery, also known as periodontal plastic surgery or cosmetic gum surgery, is a branch of periodontal (gum) surgery that focuses on enhancing the appearance of the gingiva (gums) and the overall esthetics of the smile. This type of surgery is often performed by periodontists, who are dental specialists in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal diseases.

Root canal surgery, also known as endodontic therapy, is a dental procedure performed to treat and save a tooth that is infected or badly damaged. The term "root canal" refers to the natural cavity within the center of the tooth that houses the tooth's nerve and pulp. When the pulp becomes infected or inflamed due to decay, injury, or other factors, a root canal procedure may be necessary to remove the infected tissue and alleviate pain.

Complex root canal cases demand advanced expertise to navigate intricate anatomical variations and address extensive infection or damage. They involve intricate root canal morphology, requiring precise instrumentation and a comprehensive understanding of the patient's overall oral health for successful treatment.

Highly recommend!


A root canal is not one of those things that one looks forward to, but if it needs to be done Afton Endodontics is the place. Dr. Gell and his staff are great. Dr. Gell takes time to answer all questions, explains the process, is patient and is skilled at his work. Highly recommend!

Great Experience


Everyone was very nice and answered any questions I had. My procedure was done very professionally and quickly. After I left anytime I called with questions they were very polite and answered my questions. It was a great experience, especially for someone who generally doesn’t like going to the dentist.
