Periodontal Therapy

older-coupeUnhealthy gums are a red flag, warning of future tooth loss and the potential for stroke and heart disease. A periodontal assessment is one of the most important things you can do for yourself and your family. By the age of 40, more than 75% of Americans have some form of periodontal disease (infection of the gums caused by plaque and eventually spreads to underlying bone). This disease is a very real and potentially dangerous condition, due to the fact that the disease is often painless and undetected until in its later stages.

Fortunately, at our office we can stop this infection quickly and easily with laser therapy. It gently removes infected gum tissue and actually vaporizes the bacteria causing the infection. Combined with the laser therapy we insert medication deep within pockets to prevent the area from becoming infected in the future. The process is very high tech and very effective.

We want your Periodontal Therapy to be a pleasant, comfortable, healthy, and rewarding experience. For your benefit we provide topical, local anesthetic, and nitrous oxide.
