Laser Dentistry for Patients with Periodontal Disease

Gum Disease and Health

Gum disease has been linked to a variety of health complications including heart disease and low birth-weight babies. Until now the majority of the treatment options available were invasive and painful. Using the laser, a procedure known as D-RAP (Deka Reattachment Procedure) can improve gum health, is minimally invasive and does not require the cutting or stitching of the gums!

Laser Basics

Laser, or Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation, generates one super focused beam of light, unlike the sun which projects a continuum of different wavelengths. Laser technology emerged in 1960 to improve a vast array of consumer products and services. In medicine, it is used every day to advance diagnostics and treatment outcomes in dermatology, internal surgery, ophthalmology, and dentistry.

Using Laser to Treat Periodontal Disease

Dr. Stevens uses the DEKA Smart CO2 laser with UltraSpeed pulsing technology to treat patients with periodontal disease because of its remarkable ability to target disease causing bacteria between the teeth and gums with greater efficiency, much more accuracy, and minimal pain compared with traditional gum disease treatment. Laser energy is distinct in its ability to vaporize and destroy diseased tissue and it can even stimulate new bone growth around existing teeth so that patients with periodontal disease have a much better chance of holding onto their natural teeth. Laser dentistry means no cutting, no stitches, and no long, painful recovery time.

How Are Lasers Used?

Laser dentistry has been in use since it was cleared by the Food and Drug Administration in 1991. Since then, doctors have been using it to successfully treat patients with minimally invasive procedures and more predictable outcomes than ever before.

  • Diagnose disease
  • Treat soft tissue (gums, tongue, and lips)
  • Treat hard tissue (tooth enamel, dentin, and bone)

"So what I really liked when I met Dr. Stevens was warm he is and how well he listened to me. I had concerns with sensitivity, and he really listened to me and went through a really complete explanation of options for us."
