Gum disease can silently cause teeth mobility and loss. We offer a variety of gum treatments to help maintain your teeth as long as possible. We utilize a Sol Desktop Laser to treat certain gum-related issues.


Periodontal (gum) disease can lead to more than just an unsightly smile - it can cause loss of teeth and eventually, if left untreated, serious health problems.

Called gingivitis in its early stages, periodontal disease is caused by excessive toxic bacteria (found in plaque) that attack your mouth's soft tissues. Early warning signs of this disease include red, swollen, bleeding gums. If caught early, we can help you reverse the damage. If detected late, we can use one of many effective cosmetic dentistry procedures to restore your mouth to a healthy, beautiful state. Let our doctors help you keep your teeth and gums strong and disease-free with regular examinations and cleanings.

Lasers can be used for a variety of dental treatments. Lasers are virtually painless, and they treat the gums in a very gentle manner. It's also pretty cool to say that we'll use a laser for your treatment. We use the Sol Desktop Laser, and you can find more info about the device here.
