Using The Latest, Most Comfortable Laser Technology To Treat Your Gums
Whenever possible, we avoid surgery by using lasers to rid your gums of infection with pinpoint precision. We use the DEKA CO2 laser, which:
- Vaporizes infected tissue in your gums
- Reduces bleeding
- Greatly speeds up your healing process
- Reduces chances of relapse for gum tissue attached to your tooth
Before your procedure, will numb your mouth using The Wand, a computer-operated numbing tool that doesn’t require any big, scary syringes.
Gently Cleaning Your Gums With Scaling And Root Planing
Scaling and root planing are gum disease treatment options that are essentially “deep cleaning” procedures. These procedures are used to remove plaque and tartar buildup from underneath your gums and off the roots of your teeth.
Allowing these substances to thrive can lead to jawbone decay and tooth loss. These deep cleaning procedures are often used as a first resort to solving gum disease issues, before any major damage has occurred.
We may also send you home with a follow-up treatment consisting of AO ProVantage Gel, CTx4 Gel 5000, or PreviDent fluoride gel. We often check back after one month to determine if further gum disease treatment is necessary.
