PerioLase Laser Revolutionizes Gum Therapy in Hartwell, GA
Gum disease (also known as periodontal disease) is a dangerous oral infection that affects a majority of adults in the United States – and many aren’t even aware of it! While cases tend to exhibit only mild symptoms at first, untreated patients may suffer from jawbone deterioration and tooth loss before too long. Even worse, the presence of gum disease has been linked through research to overall health conditions like strokes, heart disease, and diabetes as well. At Lee Dental Group, Dr. Michael Lee and the rest of our staff takes this threat very seriously. That’s why we’re proud to offer periodontal treatment with the state-of-the-art PerioLase Laser! Contact our Hartwell practice today to schedule your first appointment.
In advanced cases of gum disease, this technology can be used to precisely and quickly remove diseased tissue, allowing the body to regenerate a healthy replacement. Its minimally invasive nature speeds up the recovery portion as well, and most cases don’t even require any sutures because of the instant sterilization the laser provides. Patients from Canon, GA and surrounding areas will need to schedule two appointments and two follow-up visits with our practice when undergoing this procedure.
In addition to successfully treating gum disease, we may also recommend PerioLase treatment for aesthetic gum recontouring (crown lengthening) and improved crown placement. Providing patients with convenient and comfortable care is a high priority for our staff!
