Our skilled periodontist, Dr. Anne Nicholas, has been successfully helping people who are suffering from the adverse effects of periodontal (or gum) disease. Gum disease should never be ignored, and when it is discovered, it should be treated as soon as possible to prevent the destructive outcomes it can pose for one’s oral health. Gum disease can not only damage soft oral tissues but also deteriorates the supportive bone material that leads to tooth loss. Gum disease is also called “the silent killer” because it does not usually hurt and many people don’t know they have it.

One of the things that set Dr. Anne Nicholas apart from her peers is her expertise and extensive experience in the periodontal field as well as her use of state-of-the-art technology, specifically, the Gemini 810+980 diode laser to treat her patients for gum disease.

This revolutionary dual-wavelength soft tissue diode laser is the most powerful laser available today. What this means for you is that your treatment will be fast, smooth and the most efficient no matter whether you are receiving a biopsy, frenectomy, gingivectomy, pulpotomy, or other soft tissue procedure to treat your condition.

Laser periodontal therapy involves treating gum disease non-surgically. Not only is this approach an effective and minimally invasive alternative to traditional gum surgery such as infected gum tissue removal, but it can be used re-contour damaged bone by emitting concentrated energy via a narrow light beam. This allows Dr. Anne Nicholas to focus on a localized area of cell layers, giving her precise control over the procedure resulting in minimal discomfort.

Laser periodontal therapy also allows for the preservation of healthy gum tissue so that you don’t lose gum height that supports the teeth. This therapy also has pain-relieving qualities when treating soft or hard tissues in the mouth. This is made possible as it delivers energy quicker than your brain can come up with a neural response. How? The laser light beam ends before your body can even feel it.
