Gum disease is rampant in the United States, where about half of adults suffer from the condition. Unfortunately, traditional treatments for gum disease have often involved invasive surgery and considerable inconvenience. Now, lasers are being used in periodontal care to enhance treatment and ease recovery. Here is a look at how Dr. Assili, our Northridge laser gum treatment expert, is now addressing gum disease with this technology.
The latest laser tools for periodontal care can be used for a variety of procedures and eliminates bleeding during treatment. Dr. Assili uses the Precise LTM, an innovative laser device from CAO Group, Inc., a renowned leader in laser technology. The laser features stainless steel that is simple to sanitize and can easily reach the rear areas of the gums.
