Periodontal Disease Therapy
Periodontal (gum) disease affects most Americans at some point in their lives. If left untreated, gum disease can lead to gum recession, tooth loss, and it can even increase risks to your overall health. Typically characterized by red, swollen, and/or bleeding gums, gingivitis is the first stage of gum disease, followed by progressively more severe stages if left untreated. The good news is, gum disease can be effectively prevented from worsening with state-of-the-art laser periodontic treatments. Dr. Lauer utilizes the Waterlase® MD laser treatment for most of his gum disease procedures. The laser is designed to send beams of energy directly into the gums, clearing out harmful bacteria, then subsequently providing a vacuum-like seal between the gums and the teeth.
Waterlase® MD laser technology is known for its precision, treating only the areas that need to be treated without harming surrounding tissues.
Scaling and Root Planing
Scaling and root planning is a non-surgical gum disease treatment that removes harmful pockets of bacteria and cleans the base of the teeth. This is a standard and very effective method of reducing plaque and deep-set tartar, ultimately working to keep gum disease from getting much worse. Scaling and root planing is completed with the use of laser technology to seal the gums to the teeth and help them heal. The laser treatment can also significantly reduce discomfort after the procedure.
