Here at Advanced Dentistry of New York, we enjoy riding the balance between safety and cutting-edge technology. For this reason, Dr. Frantz Backer and our expert team have incorporated the secure use of lasers into our periodontal practice.
Our practice offers a treatment called scaling and root planning, which is useful for patients experiencing gum recession or diseased and inflamed gums and teeth. The process involves Dr. Frantz Backer using a special dental laser to eliminate the inflamed and diseased gum tissue. When your teeth roots are partially exposed, he will scrupulously clean the tartar and plaque from the area. The roots will also be smoothed out to eradicate any possible infection.
This treatment can certainly be performed via surgery, but in this day and age, there’s a better option. Lasers require no anesthetic and are incredibly precise. Best of all, they are much less invasive than surgery, resulting in a shorter recuperation period.
