Periodontal Laser Surgery in Cherry Hill, NJ
Periodontal Laser Therapy and Laser SURGERY
Periodontal Laser Treatment is also known as LANAP. It is a laser-based technique to treat gum disease or periodontal disease. If you have been told you need surgery on your gums or that you have periodontal disease, periodontal laser
therapy is the amazing breakthrough treatment that does not require cutting gum tissue with a scalpel instead it uses a Peior Laser. This doesn’t require stitches as does the older method and this means a quicker recovery time and no issues with infection from root exposure or bleeding or sensitivity.
What is gum disease?
Gum disease is an infection of the gums which begins as plaque and hardens to form tartar. The tartar harbors bacteria which have a negative effect on the soft tissue around the gums. Gingivitis is the first stage of gum disease and can include swollen gums, bleeding, and bad breath. Gingivitis becomes Periodontitis if left untreated, and this is a severe infection that detroys the gums, bones and teeth. Periodontitis often results in teeth falling out if it is left untreated, which is very scary. Gum disease is also linked to other health issues like strokes and diabetes. If you are in any stage of gingivitis or periodontitis, see Dr. Lee right away.
How does Laser Periodontal Therapy work?
Laser Periodontal Therapy gets rid of the gum disease infection and closes up the infected spaces between the gum and teeth. It is minimally-invasive compared to traditional gum surgery. Using a digital dental laser, the PerioLaser removes harmful bacteria and infected tissue. You will be treated with a local anesthetic when undergoing this procedure, even though the procedure is painless, the anesthetic is for your comfort. A tiny laser fiber is inserted between the teeth to clear away the diseased tissue, then the tartar is removed from the teeth. The laser reduces the bacteria and stimulated new tissue attachment to the root surfaces. This procedure takes place without any incisions and discomfort is usually very minor. Dr. Lee is up to speed on all the most modern technologies to make Laser Periodontal Therapy a breeze, no more traditional gum surgeries, no more painful methods of treatment!
Benefits of Laser Periodontal Therapy
Laser Periodontal Therapy put an end to gingivitis and periodontitis and improves overall dental health. The procedure is less traumatic than traditional gum surgery, is highly effective, takes less time for the procedure, less recovery time and has lasting results!
How long does Laser Periodontal Therapy take?
Dr. Lee will discuss if Laser Periodontal Therapy can work for you in one office visit or if it will take multiple visits, depending on the severity of your periodontal disease. This is one type of infection you do not want to delay, especially considering how quick and painless Laser Periodontal Therapy is!
Lasers are revolutionizing the dental and medical world. The American Dental Association’s (ADA) and the American Academy of Periodontology’s (AAP) recommend Periodontal Laser Therapy Treatment in treating periodontal disease.

Loose Dental Implants?
No worries…Dr. Lee at Kingston Family Cosmetic Dental Center is trained to treat peri-implantitis painlessly with TwinLight Lasers before you need to completely lose your implants. Please call our office today to find out how you can be benefited from the TwinLight Laser treatment.
TwinLight® is a minimally invasive periimplantitis treatment combining dentistry's two best laser wavelengths: Er:YAG and Nd:YAG to significantly enhance treatment success rates and shorten healing time.
How does TwinLight® Peri-implantitis Treatment Work?
Er:YAG laser is used to remove microbial composition and to treat the damaged alveolar bone around the implant. It is suitable both for peri-implant mucositis and peri-implantitis treatment, in which case the Nd:YAG laser is also used for bacterial reduction and biostimulation, as well as for more extensive treatments that require surgical therapy.
An exceptionally high regenerative rate of alveolar bone is achieved after TwinLight® treatment of the implant surface and the bony implant site.
What is the Advantage of using TwinLight®?
TwinLight® is one of the most effective methods of peri-implantitis treatment, successfully meeting the objectives of controlling infection through decontamination of peri-implant tissues and arresting disease progression.
Removal of granulation tissue from the alveolar bone and connective tissue with Er:YAG laser is selective. The bactericidal effect of Er:YAG on the surgical site is highly effective and the implant surface is completely cleaned without chemicals.
The subsequent Nd:YAG treatment step promotes faster healing by decontaminating and biostimulating the tissue. Inflammation, swelling, and bleeding of soft-tissue lesions, which may lead to bone loss, can be handled without surgery, and healthy peri-implant tissue assure greater longterm implant success.
