Laser-Assisted Periodontal Therapy
Dr. Dongjin Lee and Dr. Min Jung Kim are proud to offer the latest technology available for periodontal treatment: laser-assisted periodontal therapy. There are numerous advantages to using laser therapy as opposed to the traditional methods requiring a scalpel and sutures.
With laser treatment, there is reduced or no bleeding, minimized swelling, and no drill noise or vibration. The stress and anxiety often associated with dental work is therefore eliminated when you experience simple, effective, and essentially pain-free laser procedures. In addition, post-operative sensitivity is greatly reduced by laser dentistry, and recovery time is significantly faster than with traditional methods. In fact, due to the minimally-invasive nature of the laser technique, the mouth begins to heal immediately after work is completed.
Reduced Risk of Infection
The laser’s high-energy beam acts as a sterilizer on the area it is working, thereby reducing the risk of bacterial infection and relapse.
Limited or No Anesthesia Required
Because laser dentistry is virtually painless, we are able to provide successful treatment with little or no need for local anesthesia. Often, only a light anesthetic topical gel is required.
