Gum Disease Laser Therapy

Gum disease laser therapy offers advantages over traditional methods.

It is more comfortable and reduces the risk of infection.

Dr. Colón, Dr. Dozier, Dr. Barnett, Dr. Guzmán and Dr. Chon are 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, minimized swelling, no charring and no drill noise or 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.

Anesthesia Limited or Eliminated. Because laser dentistry is virtually painless, no longer will you suffer with fear of injections and numbness. Often, only a light anesthetic spray is required. Laser treatment eliminates the complications and cost associated with anesthesia.

Uses:

Gum disease laser therapy
We can perform a variety of procedures using laser technology, such as a frenectomy, osseous surgery, and gum grafting. We 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.

Dr. Colon can do NO wrong! I am hopelessly biased. I have been a periodontal patient for 52 of my 59 years, I think I am qualified to say Dr. Colon is the best periodontist EVER.

I was really nervous about my first visit to Dr. Colon's office. I said a prayer asking God for a pleasant visit and friendly staff with knowledge of their jobs. Everyone was great, professional, highly efficient what a great experience! I was greeted at the front door and given a tour of the office staff and the office. I meet Christy, who was fantastic, she realized I was nervous and talked with me to relax me. Dr. Colon was very professional and provided me with my dental options. The consultation was very enlightening. I will be returning aging in March. My prayers were answered. Thanks to the entire staff for making my visit a pleasant one.

This new procedure is such an improvement to the old way of doing what is required for healthy gums. I'm a marine when it comes to these sort of things, and came through it with flying colors. I would highly recommend this procedure and Dr. Colon and his staff.
