Laser techniques work by delivering energy in the form of light.  Our laser acts as a cutting instrument, or a vaporizer, when it comes into contact with your tissue. We use laser techniques in our office for numerous procedures such as:

  • periodontal treatment: gingival debridement during scaling and root planing (see tab) to kill the bacteria in the deep pocketing and promote re-growth of gingival tissue
  • crowns: gingival troughing to reduce the inflamed and enlarged gum tissue so we can accurately take impressions and disinfect around the tooth
  • gingivectomy: surgical removal of diseased gum tissue to reduce infection and reshape the appearance of the gum tissue
  • treatment of herpetic lesions: or also known as cold sores; promotes healing and fewer reoccurrence
