Laser dentistry is an innovative technology that can assist non-surgical treatments for gum disease. The diode laser we use produces a narrow, intense beam of light energy at a wavelength that is ideally suited for soft tissue procedures. This energy kills bacteria, effectively decontaminating any gum pockets that have formed due to gum disease. With much less bacteria in your mouth, the healing and tissue regeneration process will be faster and more effective. Laser dentistry is a non-invasive procedure, and the treatment is painless and comfortable.
