Laser Periodontics - Garland, Texas
Laser Treatments without Scalpels
In virtually all cases, Dr. Gandhi and our team can provide laser periodontal treatment that eliminates the need for scalpels and incisions, with comparable—and sometimes better—results. Unlike scalpel-based procedures, laser dentistry treatments use the power of the dental laser light to target problem areas around teeth and implants, vaporize bacteria, eliminate infection, and remove or reshape gum tissue. The dental lasers keep healthy tissue intact and help stimulate the regeneration and attachment of new tissues when necessary.
Our Laser Periodontics Treatments
The PerioLase MVP-7 is incredibly versatile and can effectively be used in a variety of aesthetic and functional soft tissue treatments. Laser periodontics can be used to treat peri-implantitis and failing dental implants with the LAPIP™ protocol by removing bacteria and infection from around the dental implant post. The periodontists can also use the dental laser to restore oral health after gum disease with LANAP® with a similar process that eliminates harmful bacteria and diseased tissues from around teeth.
For both children and adults, a dental laser is especially beneficial when used to restore proper oral function, breathing, and speech with a frenectomy that corrects tongue-tie and lip-tie. For patients with aesthetic concerns, the dental laser can be used to improve the smile’s natural beauty with a gingivectomy that reshapes gums into more symmetrical arches over the teeth.
