Treating and Preventing Gum Disease

We’ll help you keep your gums healthy so that the rest of your body stays healthy!

About

Periodontal (gum) disease can have devastating effects on your mouth and the rest of your body. Pockets located underneath your teeth attract bacteria, causing infection and disease, which can spread to the rest of your mouth and body. Laser assisted periodontal therapy (LAPT) is a non-surgical method for treating periodontal disease.

Key Benefits: 

  • No surgery required
  • Minimal recovery time
  • Reduces bacteria
  • Painless procedure 

Additional information: Unlike traditional gum disease treatment that involves cutting, bleeding, and stitching, LAPT uses soft tissue lasers to remove bacteria and reduced pocket size quickly and painlessly.

  • All front desk staff are always welcoming and greet me by name. The hygienist, Karen, was thorough, gave good hygiene advice, and discovered I had unused 'units' therefore I could come in more frequently which would benefit gum health. Thanks for the great care!
