Periodontal Therapy With PerioLase®
No Cutting. No Sutures.
PerioLase® therapy is an alternative to gum surgery. The procedure is a less painful, less traumatic way to treat periodontal disease at any stage.
What’s different about Research Proven PerioLase®?
PerioLase® therapy involves using a special kind of laser called the PerioLase-MVP-7™, invented by two dentists in California. Dr. Robert Gregg and Dr. Delwin McCarthy spent years developing a better way to treat gum disease. The laser fiber, which is only about as wide as three human hairs, is inserted between the gum tissue and your tooth, where it painlessly removes the elements that cause gum disease.
How many treatments will I need?
The treatment doesn’t take much time at all — just two two-hour sessions versus eight to ten one-hour sessions with surgery. You don’t have to worry about bleeding, stitches or post-treatment infection, because your gums haven’t been cut.
What about recovery – will I be in pain or need to follow a special routine?
The sense of recovery is immediate, due to the laser’s ability to seal blood vessels, lymphatics and nerve endings. Of course, your tissue needs time to recover, regenerate and heal over the course of time, but after treatment, you can drive your car, go back to work, or do anything else you like.
Is PerioLase® covered by my insurance?
If your insurance company will reimburse for conventional periodontal surgery, they will reimburse for PerioLase®. Contact them to see if you are covered if you are unsure.
