Laser Gum Therapy

Removing harmful plaque, bacteria, or calculus (a hardened build-up of plaque) is the only way to stop gum disease. Because the same bacteria, plaque, and calculus will always return, regular appointments will always be necessary. One of the options we offer for preventing, slowing, or reversing gum disease at Dental Center of Simi Valley is laser gum therapy. Using a specialized laser, Dr. Hart will eliminate the harmful bacteria and sterilize the remaining gum tissue and bone. Our knowledgeable dentist may recommend laser gum therapy for any of the following reasons:

  • High gummy smile lines
  • Extremely sensitive teeth or gums
  • Teeth that are shifting or moving
  • Swollen and bleeding gums
  • Infection or bone loss around implants
  • A patient that wants minimally invasive treatment for gum disease
  • Someone who uses blood thinners
  • A medical condition that makes tradition cleaning impossible

Our team at Dental Center of Simi Valley is devoted to providing you with the most comfortable care possible. If you have any questions about the benefits of laser gum therapy in Simi Valley, California, or any of the services we provide, please feel free to contact us today. We are committed to giving you the healthy smile you deserve.
