Receive Periodontal Care with Less Pain & a Faster Recovery
Dr. Chetan S. Patil is a trained and highly skilled expert in using advanced laser dentistry techniques at Periodontal Associates. Laser dentistry allows patients to experience more relaxed, comfortable, and less painful periodontal treatments. We utilize advanced laser technology in a variety of different cosmetic applications, such as wrinkle reduction, and periodontal procedures because they are more precise, reduce bleeding and other risks, and reduce the patient’s recovery time.
Lasers have been used in various forms of dentistry since the 1990s. Laser dentistry utilizes lasers that emit light to deliver energy. For periodontal purposes, lasers are used to cut or vaporize gum tissues as well as periodontal bacteria during different kinds of procedures. Lasers may also be used to cure, or harden, fillings, which strengthens the bond between the filling and the tooth.
How We Use Laser Dentistry
We use the state-of-the-art Fotona LightWalker® ATS laser in a variety of the restorative and cosmetic periodontal treatments that we offer. The LightWalker® ATS is one of the highest performing and most advanced lasers in the industry and uses a patented pulse technology to deliver precise results. This laser is used in many of our restorative treatments for gum disease, including gum grafts, bacteria removal from deep pockets, and more. We also use this laser for dental implant placement, extractions, and for cosmetic procedures such as crown lengthening and gum reshaping.
With the assistance of laser therapy, Dr. Patil can even reduce wrinkles without the need for injectable treatments. The major benefit of wrinkle reduction with our Fotona laser is that it energizes collagen and fibroblasts to produce more collagen. This is an important step in the reduction of wrinkles. Wrinkle reduction can enhance many of our other procedures for a healthy looking, attractive smile.
