Do you suffer from red, swollen and tender gums that occasionally bleed when brushed or flossed? Has your dentist told you that you are suffering from moderate to severe periodontal disease? Were you told you had "pockets" that were 4mm or more between your teeth? Did your dentist refer you to a periodontal specialist? If you answered yes to any of the questions above, we have a treatment option in our practice that you may be very interested in knowing more about.

We are pleased to announce that we have completed intensive training in Laser Periodontal Therapy and now offer this treatment using the World's first digital dental laser -- the PerioLase®MVP-7. This laser was specifically designed for treating gum (periodontal) disease. This addition makes it possible for us to effectively treat gum disease problems and establish ideal conditions for healing the gums around teeth that have periodontal pockets, right in our office.

The PerioLase®MVP-7 laser now gives us a gentle and effective way to stop the damage being done by the infections in the gums. Patients who have had this form of laser treatment report that they have little or no discomfort after the procedure. We are proud to be among the first of the growing number of dental offices in the country to provide this breakthrough laser treatment to our patients.

Please call our office at (818) 784-0763 for more information about this laser procedure and its applicability to your dental needs. We appreciate the opportunity to provide you with this gentle, effective treatment.
