Laser Gum Pocket Therapy

Laser therapy is one of the most important parts of gum disease treatment.

Our laser is a DEKA carbon dioxide laser, which is the very best soft tissue laser on the market. After the plaque and tartar have been removed from the gum pockets, the hygienist will treat each pocket with the laser. The carbon dioxide laser is extremely efficient in killing any remaining bacteria, and stimulating the gum tissue to heal and reattach to the tooth. Including the laser in our deep cleaning decreases pain, bleeding, and speeds the healing process. Most importantly it increases the success of the treatment helping our patients save their teeth. Often the laser treatment can prevent more invasive, expensive gum surgery that would be done at a specialist.
