We've seen truly wonderful innovations in dental techniques and technologies over the last 20 years, but the most amazing of all might well be the use of lasers in a wide variety of procedures.
Laser Gum Therapy
We use the Nd:YAG laser technology, which provides the most patient-friendly, state-of-the-art periodontal (gum) treatment available. We use this laser to treat periodontal disease by eliminating infection and healing gum tissue.
The laser’s light energy practically eliminates disease-causing bacteria and diseased gum tissue responsible for the periodontal breakdown. Laser dentistry is highly efficient and effective. It's also virtually painless. And since gum disease is such a serious oral and systemic health problem, any advance in treatment is terrific news.
Some teeth have excess gum tissue covering them, creating a "gummy smile" that makes the teeth appear short. With a procedure called crown lengthening, lasers can painlessly sculpt away excess tissue, revealing beautiful, healthy and well-proportioned teeth, thus liberating your naturally winning smile. Plus, the laser seals and heals as it sculpts, making recovery fast and easy.
