Laser Periodontal Treatment has become an increasingly popular and effective method for treating periodontitis over the last couple of years thanks to its many benefits. The procedure itself is relatively simple and far less invasive than traditional gum disease treatments. As a result, recovery is often quick and pain is minimal.
While laser treatment has many benefits, finding an experienced periodontist certified in Laser Periodontal Treatment can be a challenge. Not all dental professionals are certified to use this innovative technology — which often requires years of education and training. Therefore, it’s very important to research providers when seeking treatment options. You want to be sure to trust an experienced periodontist to do the procedure safely and effectively.
At Ormond Beach Periodontics, Dr. Stuart Beauchamp is trained and certified to work with dental lasers and has been offering this effective treatment to our patients for several years. Not only are we experienced, but we also invest in the latest and best technology and always prioritize patient comfort. These factors are just a few of the reasons why we’re often considered to be one of the best Laser Periodontal Treatment providers in Central Florida.
What Is Periodontal Laser Treatment?
During Laser Periodontal Treatment, your periodontist will use a powerful laser to remove inflamed gum tissue around the roots of your teeth. The laser itself is very small — only about the width of about three human hairs. The laser will help to remove diseased tissue and inflammation as well as sterilize the area. From there, your periodontist can easily scrape plaque from the root area before smoothing the gums and removing any leftover rough spots. During this process, only the diseased gum tissue is removed. The procedure can help increase the chances of saving and restoring teeth and ultimately preventing extraction. Because laser treatment removes bacteria, it enables gums to heal, become more stable, and naturally support your teeth.
Laser Periodontal Treatment is often combined with other treatment options (scaling and planning) or at times used as an alternative to gum flap surgery.
Laser treatment has many benefits over traditional treatments for gum disease. For one, it’s not invasive, which means a drastically shorter recovery time, fewer office visits, and fewer restrictions around eating post-procedure. Because it’s significantly less painful, it can also be performed without general anesthesia.
3 Reasons To Consider Ormond Beach Periodontics Is The Best For Laser Periodontal Treatment
Laser gum treatment is a very specialized procedure and often requires rigorous training, which is why it’s not offered by all dental professionals. As a result, it’s important to choose the right provider to perform this treatment. If you’re considering Laser Periodontal Treatment, below are three reasons why patients from all over Central Florida choose Ormond Beach Periodontics as their provider:
1. Patient Comfort Is Our Top Priority
At Ormond Beach Periodontics, we go above and beyond to maximize patient comfort. Our patient chairs are created with handcrafted leather or fabric and are supported by memory foam. This helps to ensure our patients remain comfortable throughout the entire visit. Because each of our office rooms features large windows, patients enjoy lots of natural light and beautiful views of our outdoor gardens and season flowers during their procedure.
We know many patients can be nervous before Laser Periodontal Treatment, which is why our staff is trained to make our patient experience as comfortable as possible. Our staff strives to make every patient feel like part of our family, and we aim to create an atmosphere where everyone feels safe and comfortable. We’re friendly, personable, and knowledgeable. We take our time with each and every patient and are always available to thoroughly answer any and all questions so that you know exactly what to expect before your laser treatment.
2. We Invest In The Latest And Best Technology
At Ormond Beach Periodontics, we’re always investing in the latest technology to help make gum disease treatment easier and less painful for our patients. In addition to laser treatment, we use 21st-century technology including CT scans, 3D imaging, and x-rays to develop the best possible treatment plan for tackling severe cases of gum disease.
For laser treatment itself, we offer Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP) technology as a less invasive option for patients in need of gum disease treatment. This is widely considered to be the industry standard for Laser Periodontal Treatment.
A LANAP procedure uses a very specific type of laser called a PerioLase MVP-7. With LANAP, there is significantly less pain and a drastically quicker recovery compared to more traditional treatment options. The procedure itself is also very safe. In order to perform this procedure, our staff underwent an intensive training program at the Institute for Advanced Laser Dentistry. The procedure only takes about an hour and usually can be completed in one or two total visits.
