Laser-Assisted Periodontal Therapy

To minimize patient discomfort and maximize treatment effectiveness, we use the most advanced LANAP® laser technology available. The PerioLase® MVP-7™ laser delivers gentle pulses of light to effectively root out and kill the damaging bacteria hidden between teeth and gums. While traditional scalpel (blade) surgery can harm healthy gum tissue, LANAP® focuses precisely on the diseased tissue leaving healthy tissue unharmed. The result is a more relaxing patient experience with faster healing.

Benefits of Laser-Assisted Periodontal Therapy 

PRECISION

Our precision dental laser meticulously targets and removes harmful bacteria without causing damage to healthy gum tissue.

FAST RECOVERY

Since there is no cutting and minimal post-operative inflammation, our patients experience a much faster healing period and often do not need pain medication.

SUPERIOR RESULTS

Since there is no cutting and minimal post-operative inflammation, our patients experience a much faster healing period and often do not need pain medication.

MINIMAL GUM RECESSION

Gum recession is commonly an unavoidable result of traditional surgery because the scalpel cuts away at the gum line. Laser gum surgery never harms healthy tissue, which means there is little to no gum recession.

STRONGER SUPPORT

Laser gum surgery has been shown to generate new bone growth in the jaw, leading to added support for existing teeth.
