In recent years, laser dentistry has superseded traditional dentistry practices in the treatment and prevention of periodontal disease, making treatments more precise and less painful. This newer and highly advanced style of dentistry utilizes intense beams of light projected by a dental laser. The laser's unique ability to concentrate energy at a focused point allows the dentist to seal blood vessels and small nerve endings during the procedure. This means you can expect gentle, precise procedures with no bleeding and very little post-operative pain and swelling.
Benefits of Laser Gum Treatment
In many situations, the less invasive and less expensive laser gum treatment has taken the place of the more invasive and expensive periodontal surgery. In addition, at the office of E. M. Makhoul, DDS, in Mission Viejo, we are changing the future: Due to the laser's ability to kill oral bacteria, as part of our preventive hygiene treatment, we use the laser to attack periodontal inflammation at the microscopic level of infection.
The power of focused light destroys otherwise inaccessible bacterial colonies while simultaneously creating an ideal environment for healing. Today, our practice offers our patients the hope of a better tomorrow by providing oral health care in ways that were science fiction only a few years ago. We are not only cleaning teeth and creating beautiful smiles. With our enlightened therapy, we are doing more than enhancing lifestyle: Each time we treat a patient, we are changing their future. We are prolonging lives and saving life itself. We are one of the very few offices with the means to offer comprehensive gum therapy.
If you're suffering from gum inflammation or gum disease, please call (949) 596-0296 or contact our office online to schedule an appointment with Dr. Makhoul. We offer laser gum treatment to patients in Laguna Hills, Mission Viejo, and other area communities.
