How We Can Help —

Laser therapy effectively treats gum disease.

Gum disease is an inflammatory disease that affects gum tissue and the bones that support our teeth. Gum disease is also associated with an increased risk for several serious diseases including heart disease, diabetes, and respiratory disease. Modern dentistry has found that lasers can be very effective in treating gum disease.

Laser therapy can be used in several different ways. It can:

  • Remove the diseased tissue from around and between teeth.

  • Remove the buildup of tartar and minerals around the roots of the teeth and help clean out the gum pockets.

  • Support traditional methods such as scaling to remove the diseased gum and bacteria from around teeth.

There are many advantages to laser therapy including:

  • Less bleeding, swelling and discomfort.

  • Use of local anesthesia which is non-drowsy and has fewer precautions.

  • Faster healing because it is less invasive.

  • May promote and quicken the regeneration process of the gums and affected bones.
