Laser Treatment for Better Periodontal Health

Few doctors employ laser technology in their offices, and fewer still offer a choice in laser technologies to provide more personalized high-tech health care. We know that the best course of action is different for every patient, even those who may exhibit similar severities of periodontal disease. That means treatment specifics are personalized to each patient’s unique needs, and those needs may be best served by Periolase, WaterLase, or both. When evaluating your periodontal health and designing your laser periodontal treatment, Dr. Kania will take all of your unique periodontal, oral, and overall health concerns into account, as well as your own personal treatment preferences, optimal comfort, and convenience.

Using Advanced Lasers to Improve Gum Health

The use of advanced technology, including our choice of periodontal lasers, has been a significant advantage in improving the quality of care and results of our personalized periodontal treatment plans. Using the laser to trim away diseased gums and periodontal ligaments, facilitate minimally invasive periodontal surgeries, eradicate harmful oral bacteria, and more has allowed us to improve patients’ periodontal and oral health in more natural and effective ways. Both the Periolase MVP-7 Nd:YAG digital laser and the WaterLase Erbium Chromium YSGG Wavelength laser offer higher levels of precision and comfort for a wide range of advanced periodontal treatment options.

More About Laser Periodontal Treatment

Like any technology or treatment technique, laser periodontal treatment is designed to address every patient’s unique periodontal health, treatment needs, and more. As a tool for optimizing a wide range of techniques, Dr. Kania may suggest utilizing one or both advanced lasers for treatments such as:

  • Laser periodontal treatment – Periodontal treatment can mean different things depending on the severity of your periodontal disease. If your treatment requires trimming or modifying diseased gum tissues, then laser treatment may offer optimal treatment results, as well as greater elimination of harmful oral bacteria.
  • Laser gum grafting – Gum grafting may be recommended for restoring the health and integrity of diseased gum tissues, restoring the healthy appearance of receding gums, and more. Dr. Kania practices several forms of minimally invasive gum grafting, including Pinhole grafting that eliminates the need for a scalpel.
  • Laser jawbone grafting – Jawbone grafting, including ridge and/or sinus augmentation, involves helping to boost the strength and integrity of your upper or lower jawbone. The use of our advanced laser technology helps make preparing your jawbone structure and implementing natural bone growth elements a faster and more effective process.
