Peabody Dental Implant Centre Implements New Cleaning, Sterilization System

PEABODY, MA--(Marketwired - March 29, 2015) - Dr. John Argeros, who offers Peabody All on 4 dental implants, has purchased and installed a new instrument washer and state-of-the-art sterilizer.

The new technology was installed in the office of Contemporary Dentistry and Implantology at the end of February. The units work together to remove all debris from the dental instruments and then sterilize the instruments before their next use.

The autoclave is a pressure chamber that works by saturating the instruments in steam that reaches nearly 250 degrees. The fully automated chamber also vents and dries each of the instruments after sterilization.

Dr. Argeros, owner of Contemporary Dentistry and Implantology, said the new technology is some of the most sophisticated and thorough cleaning equipment used in medicine. The Peabody dentist added that the new cleaning system allows his practice to continue completing a high volume of dental implant procedures while focusing on health and safety first.

"These new systems are user-friendly, safe and instill confidence in our infection control system," Dr. Argeros said. "This is exciting because we strive to uphold the very highest infection control standards for our office."

Dr. Argeros, who is a graduate of Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, has served the Peabody community for more than 35 years. Contemporary Dentistry and Implantology offers All on 4 dental implants, implants for dentures, crowns, bridges, veneers, teeth whitening, sedation dentistry and, most recently, endodontics.

Dr. Argeros began incorporating dental implantology into his practice in the 1980s. His experienced and well-trained staff uses the latest technology to serve patients through paperless dental management software, CT scans, digital radiology, intra-oral cameras and CAD/CAM restorations. Contemporary Dentistry and Implantology uses the I-Cat, a Cone Beam Computerized Tomography scanning system that shows a complete scan in just nine seconds.

Dr. Argeros is one of a few hundred dentists in the world who holds a certification in dental implants from the American Board of Oral Implantology/Implant Dentistry. He also is the former president of the Massachusetts Dental Society of Anesthesiology. In 2009, Dr. Argeros earned the prestigious Fellowship in the American Academy of Implant Dentistry and was also appointed to the review board for the academy's publication, The Journal of Oral Implantology. He is a member of the Massachusetts Dental Society, North Shore District Dental Society, Academy of Osseointegration, American Dental Society of Anesthesiology, American Dental Association and holds a Mastership in the International Congress of Oral Implantology. Dr. Argeros also has provided restorative dental treatment at the North Shore Medical Center Union Hospital since 1979.

Dr. Donald Plourde is a graduate of Merrimack College and Tufts University School of Dental Medicine and is a member of the Massachusetts Dental Society, North Shore District Dental Society and the American Dental Society. Dr. Plourde focuses on restorative dentistry and is certified in the Bicon, 3I and Branemark implant systems. He joined the practice in 1990.

Dr. Stephen Sozanski joined the practice in 2014. Dr. Sozanski is a 1981 graduate of Tufts Endodontic Program and recently moved from a practice in Newcastle, Maine. He had been with Contemporary Dentistry and Implantology for 10 years before his time in Maine. Dr. Sozanski will be available to patients on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
