A habit of poor oral hygiene often leads to dangerous amounts of tartar on your gum line, which is a common cause of gum disease. This periodontal infection needs to be treated early on to reduce inflammation before it creates harmful oral health conditions.
If advanced gum disease has resulted in injury to your smile, our LANAP laser may be used to repair your oral health. This treatment is one of the most effective, non-invasive treatments to restore healthy gums following infection. It allows our dentist to reach the root of the damaged tooth and have access to the supportive bone through the use of laser light to gently remove diseased tissue and kill bacteria.
This is a great alternative to other invasive procedures and is safe to use. The use of laser gum treatments helps you heal more quickly and takes less of your time, so you can return back to your daily regimen.
Our periodontist will make sure that your oral hygiene is in good shape by removing any hardened plaque (calculus) that surround your teeth. Our doctor will also assess your overall health and the kinds of medicines you are currently taking to make sure this treatment is right for you.
