Laser Periodontics

Even if you like your periodontist, you may not be so fond of the tray of scalpels and stiches that normally sits next to the dentist chair. Smile in the City has a way to eliminate the need for such tools in a number of periodontal procedures, thanks to our advanced techniques in laser dentistry. Our New York periodontist is trained and experienced in the use of high-tech lasers, ensuring effective and comfortable dental care without the sharp tools that can lead to swelling and pain.

WaterLase Technology

Our periodontist is well-versed in the use of laser technology. Our laser procedures involve the use of a specialized light beam that replaces traditional dental tools. One method we use is WaterLase Deep Pocket Therapy, which combines laser energy with water for a highly effective and extremely gentle experience.

Other benefits of laser treatments from our periodontist in NYC include the increase in precision and decrease in aggression. WaterLase technology can target precise and hard-to-access areas that may be problematic with traditional tools. Traditional dental methods can also involve aggressive techniques that can lead to swelling, bleeding and discomfort.

Laser periodontal treatment remains gentle, precise and comfortable, and Smile in the City is one of the few periodontics offices in New York City who offer the WaterLase technology option.

Laser Treatment for Gum Disease

Gum disease, which includes gingivitis and periodontal disease, stems from bacteria that thrive in your mouth. If left untreated, it can eventually lead to gum tissue problems and tooth loss. Gingivitis is one of the earlier stages of the disease, while periodontal disease is a later stage of the condition.

Our laser treatment for gum disease is aimed at eliminating the bacteria, along with toxins and debris, which can build up beneath your gum line. Our periodontists achieve this by using the most conservative approach suited for your particular stage of the disease. Laser technology can be extremely helpful for various stages of gum disease by killing off bacteria and preventing any infection from becoming more severe.

Additional Laser Procedures from Periodontist

In addition to preventing infection and improving your oral health, our periodontist can use laser dentistry in a number of advanced cosmetic procedures. They include:

  • Laser Gum Lift: Laser gum lifts involve the lifting of the gums by gently shaping the gum tissue, resulting in the appearance of longer teeth and more symmetrical smile.
  • Laser Gum Graft: A laser gum graft helps to correct a receding gum line without necessarily relying on the traditional technique of removing tissue from another area in your mouth and placing it over the exposed roots. An enhanced smile is generally the end result.
  • Laser Gum Depigmentation: Laser gum depigmentation, also known as gum bleaching, removes dark pigmentation from your gum area, resulting in a smile that appears healthier and more vibrant.

Ideal Candidates for Laser Technology

Anyone who wants to say goodbye to dentist drills and hello to gentler, more precise dental procedures can be a good candidate for our laser technology. Patients who opt for our laser technology generally enjoy a shorter healing period after the procedures and a calmer state of mind during the procedure.
