Laser dentistry has revolutionized many dental treatments by eliminating the need for scalpels, incisions, and sutures. We have invested in three different soft tissue lasers—the PerioLase® MVP-7™, Deka CO2, and Diode—to offer minimally invasive and scalpel-free services for our patients. These dental lasers enable us to provide care that is comfortable, convenient, and virtually painless! Our laser dentistry services range from gum disease treatment to gingivectomy procedures, all soft tissue procedures we can now complete in a fraction of the time and much less invasively than that of conventional treatment.
Gum Disease – LANAP laser gum disease treatment targets and eliminates harmful bacteria and removes diseased tissue, plaque, and tartar, without harming healthy gum tissue.
Peri-implantitis – Removal of bacteria buildup around a dental implant to treat inflammation and infection of the gum tissue to preserve bone and prevent implant failure.
Gingivectomy – A reduction or reshaping of the soft tissue around the tooth crowns to fix a “gummy” smile or gain access for treatment of decay or bonding a dental crown.
Frenectomy – Removal of the fold of soft tissue causing too much hindrance on the movement of the upper lip and tongue.
Distal Wedge – Removal of a small wedge of soft tissue covering over a tooth to prevent or treat localized gum disease and reduce the risk for cavity development.
Laser dentistry is one of the best ways we can care for your oral health, while providing you with relaxing and comfortable experiences. If you want to learn more about our laser dentistry services, schedule a consultation with Dr. Claire Cho today!
