How is laser therapy a more effective treatment for periodontal disease?

For years, gum surgery has been the only treatment available for moderate to advanced gum disease. Recently, huge strides have been made in the field of laser therapy for treating gum disease. Associates of Dental Arts is trained and skilled in the treatment of gum disease using the PerioLase Laser.

When compared to traditional gum surgery, laser therapy with the PerioLase laser has the following advantages:

  • No cutting
  • No stitches
  • Minimal discomfort
  • Treatment is completed faster, within weeks instead of months
  • Very little recovery time is necessary
  • Safe for most patients, even those on blood-thinning medications

Call our office today to schedule an appointment with our team and find out if laser therapy using the PerioLase laser is right for you.
