Virtually Painless Laser Periodontal (GUM ) Treatment

For your comfort and convenience,Boynton Laser Dental Center uses laser assisted periodontal therapy to treat gum disease without uncomfortable cutting or sutures.

Dr. Shiffman manages infected gums in a single office visit by utilizing the industry’s only proven multi wavelength laser treatment. Laser dentistry quickly and painlessly removes dangerous toxins that lead to bone deterioration, while simultaneously promoting the growth of healthy gum tissue.

Here’s how it works:

Laser assisted periodontal therapy is regarded for its comfort, but a local anesthetic is applied to ensure absolutely no pain is felt during the procedure. A general anesthetic isn’t necessary.

A small laser fiber, about the size of a thin hair brush bristle is placed in the pocket between the gum and tooth to eliminate bad bacteria and diseased gum tissue. The healthy tissue is left unharmed, and the pocket is cleared for further cleaning.

A second laser wavelenth uses a thin laser quartz rod , which creates a photo-accoustic wave to gently break apart tartar and calcium deposits on the tooth’s roots along with de-toxifying the root surfaces.
The laser fiber returns to reach the bottom of the pocket and remove harmful toxins and bacteria while sterilizing the bone and tissue. This action elicits blood clotting. The clots contain fibers that will support the reattachment of the tissue to the bone and foster the regrowth of lost tissues.

Gums that were once diseased are restored to health without cutting, scaling, stitches, or pain. Laser assisted periodontal therapy is remarkably powerful and effective, yet gentle. Unlike traditional periodontal treatments, which employ sharp tools to cut away affected tissue, laser assisted periodontal therapy keeps your gums intact and allows you to remain comfortable throughout the entire procedure and afterwards.

If your gums are tender, inflamed, bleeding, or receding from the tooth, it’s likely you have gum disease. It’s important to promptly seek treatment since gum disease contributes to cardiovascular issues, diabetes, stroke, and low birth weight in pregnant women. Gums anchor the teeth, so acceptable periodontal health promotes oral health, too.
