These advanced tools facilitate non-invasive, proactive treatment; for instance, options for periodontal therapy to resolve destructive gum disease include those that are free of cutting tools, such as scalpels. From scalpels to needles to drills, traditional dental instruments are often sources of dental anxiety and fear due to how laser dentistry systems and our other advanced tools manipulate tissues. The treatment assisted by these technologies is generally precise and conservative (preserves maximum natural tooth structure and gums), gentle and well-tolerated, and minimizes the risks of side effects or complications following treatment. 

Effective treatments at every “stage” 

We won’t know if laser dentistry is the best option for you until after we examine your mouth. During routine hygiene appointments, scheduled at least once every six months, Dr. Hwang checks the condition of your gums. He pinpoints potential trouble spots by using sophisticated diagnostics such as intraoral cameras and digital x-rays. Early-stage gum inflammation and gingivitis can be reversed and effectively addressed with hygiene modifications. More advanced gum disease, such as periodontitis, can be halted with a nonsurgical “deep clean” known as Scaling and Root Planing (SRT). This cleaning technique encourages the eradication of harmful bacteria from the pockets between the teeth and gums and promotes healing and reattachment of the supportive tissues to the teeth. Laser dentistry can be used to remove disease tissue in a light-touch manner, recontour the gums, and help resolve periodontal infections. Once the health of your gums has been restored, we will recommend maintenance in the form of more frequent follow-up visits to our office. We will also work closely with you to assure you have the tools, the education on proper hygiene techniques, and specialized or medicated oral care products to keep your gums their healthy best for life.
