A more comfortable alternative to traditional surgery
Dr. Kardaris uses a laser for treatment of more severe gum disease. There are many advantages to laser treatment as opposed to traditional surgical treatments. Laser therapy is minimally invasive and thus much more comfortable for the patient.
Less pain and faster healing
Dr. Kardaris likes to make your treatments as comfortable for you as possible. She feels that advanced technology can help in this. She has chosen one of the most advanced lasers for treating gum disease for this reason.
How it works
The laser uses light energy to remove diseased tissue and it kills the bacteria that cause gum disease inside the pocket. The laser has a tiny fiber that is about as thick as three strands of hair. This tiny fiber slips between the gum and the root of the tooth and removes only the diseased tissue, leaving healthy tissue and bone.
