Calleros Dental is proud to be one of the first and only offices in the South Bay to offer Laser Assisted Periodontal Therapy. This groundbreaking technique is highly effective in the treatment of periodontal disease.
Gum disease, technically known as periodontal disease, is a chronic, degenerative condition that, according to a Center for Disease Control Fact Sheet, affects “most” Americans. Left untreated, gum disease can escalate to cause tooth loss, and it has been linked to heart disease, stroke, and complications for diabetics and pregnant women. Severe periodontal disease can leave behind destruction that must be removed before healing can begin. If your gums have been virtually destroyed by periodontal disease, our laser can quickly remove damaged tissue, and your body will naturally regenerate healthy tissue.
Laser Assisted Periodontal Therapy results in virtually no recovery period because it’s minimally invasive. Laser Assisted Periodontal therapy has never been easier, cleaner, quicker, or more convenient and effective. In addition to alleviating damaged gum tissue, the laser can re-contour gums for crown placement or aesthetics. Other soft tissue procedures, as well as hard tissue procedures are possible with this innovative tool.
