targeted and near-painless treatment for periodontal disease
An infection of the gums can cause several health problems and damage your teeth in the long-term. If you notice any of the following signs and symptoms of gum disease, you must schedule an oral evaluation with our doctor.
Our office is equipped with a dental laser that can effectively treat gum disease without surgery. This minimally invasive procedure kills bacteria that causes gum disease. We can then remove all traces of calculus around the tooth using an ultrasonic tool and pass the laser over the treatment area a second time to form a blood clot. Our doctor will compress the tissues to promote healing and then adjust the bite.
