Gum Disease Laser Therapy

Dr. Perry is proud to offer the latest technology available for periodontal therapy: laser treatment. There are numerous advantages to using laser therapy as opposed to the traditional methods requiring a scalpel and sutures.

Benefits:

Comfort:

With laser treatment, there is reduced or no bleeding, minimized swelling, no charring, and no drill noise or vibration. The stress and anxiety often associated with dental work is therefore eliminated when you experience quick, effective, and essentially pain-free laser procedures. Also, postoperative sensitivity is greatly limited by laser dentistry, and recovery time is much quicker than with traditional methods. In fact, due to the less-invasive nature of the laser technique, the mouth begins to heal immediately after work is completed!

Reduced Risk of Infection:

The laser’s high-energy light beam acts as a sterilizer on the area it is working, thereby reducing the risk of bacterial infections and relapses.

Anesthesia Limited or Eliminated:

Because laser dentistry is virtually painless, no longer will you suffer with fear of injections and numbness. Often, only a light anesthetic spray is required. Laser treatment eliminates the complications and cost associated with anesthesia.

Uses: much lower chance of gum disease returning when laser therapy is used as opposed to traditional surgery.

This method also encourages healthy gum to regenerate and attach to the teeth. There is a

Stop periodontal disease before it steals your smile!

Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is a bacterial infection affecting the gum and bone tissue around the teeth. Periodontal disease can cause teeth to loosen—eventually causing tooth and bone loss. In fact, gum disease is the number one cause of tooth loss in adults.

Our goal is to help patients conquer gum disease and maintain oral health in order to lower their risk of heart disease, chronic respiratory disease, and stroke. Using the latest laser technology Dr. Perry is able to detect and treat gum disease in its earliest stages, as well as treat existing cases non-surgically. She can test for the specific bacteria assessing the infection by using the BANA test and the Oral DNA test. These tests will tell what the specific bacteria are that is causing the infection. This allows the infection to be treated more affectively.
