Although millions of adults throughout the United States have periodontal disease, many patients do not seek treatment for gum disease out of fear. Procedures to treat gum disease in the past are considered, at the least, uncomfortable. Advances in dentistry have introduced a new laser therapy, recently approved by the FDA to treat gum disease. Dr. Woeltje, certified in laser use by the Academy of Laser Dentistry, now provides laser periodontal therapy for our Fort Worth patients, which can help you attain healthy teeth and gums.
This revolutionary laser therapy tool allows Dr. Woeltje to preserve your healthy gum tissue. The laser cleans out infections lodged between teeth and gums with minimal pain. Laser periodontal therapy provides long-lasting results in the fight against gum disease. The procedure offers our Fort Worth patients less discomfort than the other gum disease treatments available today.
Benefits of Laser Dentistry
Our caring team puts patient comfort at the forefront of all procedures. Dr. Woeltje used the NV diode laser to perform many procedures that previously required scalpels, sutures and had long healing times. Now with this state-of-the-art technology, in many cases Dr. Woeltje is able to perform the same procedure with little or no anesthesia, no scalpels or sutures and greatly enhanced healing times.
Some of the more popular procedures that Dr. Woeltje uses this technology for include:
- Correcting gingival (gum) contours to create that perfect smile
- Removing various oral lesions and pathology (biopsy)
- Releasing tongue ties (ankyloglossia) and muscle attachments that cause gum recession
- Treatment of pathos ulcers, herpetic lesions (cold sores) and root sensitivity
