Our Laser Services
Gum disease therapyGum disease is a common infection that attacks the hard and soft tissue of the mouth. By using laser treatment, we are able to effectively eliminate the disease-causing bacteria and restore health to your mouth without using scalpels or sutures and with minimal bleeding or discomfort.
Dental fillingsWhen most people think of needing a filling, they imagine a noisy and painful dental drill. With laser dentistry we are able to clean out the infection using gentle laser light. This provides our patients with a more comfortable treatment and helps calm those who experience dental anxiety.
GingivectomiesWhen bacteria has infected the gum tissue surrounding your teeth, we may need to perform a gingivectomy to remove dead tissue and stop the spread of infection. With our dental laser, we can perform this treatment without the use of a scalpel, with a minimally invasive approach that causes virtually no bleeding and no damage to healthy tissue.
Frenectomies“For those with a tongue- or lip-tie, frenectomies are common solutions that remove the tight tissue that is restricting movement. By using gentle laser technology, we can perform this treatment in just a few minutes without the need for scalpels or sutures and with almost no bleeding..
Peri-implantitisSimilar to gum disease, peri-implantitis is when disease has affected the gum tissue and bone surrounding a dental implant [link to dental implant page]. We can use dental lasers to eliminate this disease and save your dental implant investment from failing due to tissue loss.
