Treating and Preventing Gum Disease
We’ll help you keep your gums healthy so that the rest of your body stays healthy!
Periodontal (gum) disease can have devastating effects on your mouth and the rest of your body. Bacteria gathers in the pockets beneath your teeth, 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.
- 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 eliminate bacteria and reduce pocket size quickly and painlessly.
