Gum Disease Laser Therapy
We are constantly learning and striving to advance the standard of patient care in our office, and have recently introduced a sophisticated new piece of equipment.
Dr. Godiwala is proud to offer the latest technology available for periodontal therapy and teeth whitening. There are numerous advantages to using laser therapy as opposed to the traditional methods requiring a scalpel and sutures.
With laser treatment, there is reduced or no bleeding, minimized swelling, no charring, and no vibration. The stress and anxiety often associated with dental work is therefore eliminated when you experience quick, effective, and essentially pain-free laser procedures. Also, postoperative sensitivity is greatly limited by laser dentistry, and recovery time is much quicker than with traditional methods. In fact, due to the less-invasive nature of the laser technique, the mouth begins to heal immediately after work is completed!
Reduced Risk of Infection:
The laser’s high-energy light beam acts as a sterilizer on the area it is working, thereby reducing the risk of bacterial infections and relapses.
Dr. Godiwala and our hygienists can perform a variety of procedures using laser technology, such teeth whitening, frenectomy, osseous surgery, and gum grafting. They are also able to use laser technology as a way to regenerate healthy gums and remove diseases areas in a virtually painless way. This method also encourages healthy gum to regenerate and attach to the teeth. There is a much lower chance of gum disease returning when laser therapy is used as opposed to traditional surgery.
