Laser Hygiene Therapy
We offer our patients an exciting and gentle alternative to oral surgery in treating periodontal (gum) disease. Laser Hygiene Therapy takes our scaling and root planning standard to a new level when we feel that the disease is progressing despite good homecare and regular cleanings. The laser uses light energy to reduce the bacterial count in pockets surrounding the teeth after regular debridement is completed. This treatment can be added to a regular recall appointment or as a separate procedure. It is quick and rarely requires any anesthetic. Have you been told that you need gum surgery and are fearful about the invasiveness of the procedure? Do you have bleeding gums, pockets, recession and bone loss and feel that, no matter what you do, your oral health continues to get worse? Call us or ask about Laser Hygiene Therapy the next time we see you.
