The laser’s ability to detect the difference between healthy and diseased tissue allows it to remove bacteria from the gums without cutting, damaging or removing healthy tissue.

Our Fontana LightWalker® laser

State-of-the-art Laser Treatment

Our periodontist treats gum disease using the Fotona LightWalker laser, which is highly effective at both fighting the infection and pro-moting the healing of your gum and bone tissue. It emits two different wavelengths of laser light that deliver a one-two punch to the bacteria that cause gum disease—one disinfects and promotes healing while the other removes diseased tissue and tartar.

Treatment with the laser also stimulates the body’s natural regenerative potential; this assists in the repair of bone and gum tissue that may have been lost as a result of the gum disease.

Because there’s no cutting or suturing involved, little to no bleeding results, and patients are more comfortable during and after laser treatment than with traditional gum surgery.

Expert Care From a Gum Specialist

Periodontists are specialists in the diagnosis and treatment of gum disease. As a result of their specialty training and experience combat-ing gum disease, they are often able to save teeth that otherwise might have been lost to the disease. Our in-house periodontist is a Diplomate of the American Board of Periodontology and stays up to date on the latest techniques and technologies in order to provide the most comfortable and most effective treatment possible.

Who Should See a Periodontist for Gum Disease Treatment?

Anyone can receive significant benefits from seeing our board-certified periodontist for gum disease treatment, but certain types of patients can be especially helped.

Patients who are smokers and patients undergoing orthodontic treatment, or who have a family history of gum disease, poorly controlled diabetes or diseases that affect the immune system, should see a periodontist for their gum care. These types of gum disease cases are more complicated and require an expert periodontist to effectively treat them.
