Gum Disease Laser Therapy
Dr. Harley Williams is proud to offer the latest technology available for periodontal therapy using BIOLASE waterlaser treatment. There are numerous advantages, including increased comfort for the patient, to using laser therapy for treatment of gum disease as opposed to the traditional methods requiring a scalpel and sutures.
Gum Disease Laser Therapy Benefits:
With laser treatment, there is reduced or no bleeding, minimized swelling, no charring, and no drill noise or vibration. The stress and anxiety often associated with dental work is therefore eliminated when you experience quick, effective, and essentially pain-free laser procedures. Also, postoperative sensitivity is greatly limited by laser dentistry, and recovery time is much quicker than with traditional methods. In fact, due to the less-invasive nature of the laser technique, the mouth begins to heal immediately after work is completed!
Reduced Risk of Infection:
The laser’s high-energy light beam acts as a sterilizer on the area it is working, thereby reducing the risk of bacterial infections and relapses.
other Uses for Gum Disease Laser Therapy:
Dr. Harley Williams can perform a wide variety of procedures using laser technology, such as a frenectomy, osseous surgery, gum grafting, and more. The doctor is also able to use laser technology as a way to regenerate healthy gums and remove diseases areas in a virtually painless way. This method also encourages healthy gum tissue to naturally regenerate and attach to the teeth.
