The Alternative to Cut-and-Sew Osseous Surgery
Gum disease begins with irritated, bleeding gums and without proper treatment can progress until invading bacteria have destroyed healthy gum tissue and bone. Gum disease treatment aims to eradicate the plaque and tartar buildup causing the infection, ideally before any harm comes to the gums, bone, and teeth. We offer multiple forms of gum disease treatment, including traditional osseous surgery. Many of our patients, however, turn to a more minimally invasive and comfortable alternative to gum disease treatment with laser dentistry.

Gum Disease Treatment with Laser Dentistry
We use the BIOLASE WaterLase iPlus® and Epic dental lasers for many dental procedures, and especially for minimally-invasive gum disease treatment. These hand-held tools emit a powerful, yet painless, laser energy and targeted water spray (WaterLase laser) that eradicates tartar on the tooth surface. With laser dentistry, we can treat gum disease with greater precision and less harm to the surrounding healthy gum and bone tissue. Dental lasers also allow us to provide gum disease treatment for multiple areas of the mouth in fewer appointments, and is so gentle, most patients can return to normal activities the day after treatment.
