Gum Disease Therapy

Shady Side Dental, LLC is proud to offer the latest technology available for periodontal therapy: laser treatment. There are numerous advantages to using laser therapy as opposed to the traditional methods requiring a scalpel and sutures.

Benefits:

Comfort:

With laser treatment, there is reduced or no bleeding and minimized swelling. 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.

Uses:

Our dentists can perform a variety of procedures using laser technology, such as a frenectomy, osseous surgery, and gum grafting. Dr. Creekmore and Dr. Larkin are also able to use laser technology as a way to regenerate healthy gums and remove diseased areas. This method also encourages healthy gums to regenerate and attach to the teeth.
