Gum Disease Laser Therapy

Dr. Fletcher is proud to offer the latest technology available for periodontal therapy: laser treatment. There are advantages to using laser therapy as opposed to the traditional surgical methods.

With laser treatment, there is reduced or no bleeding, minimized swelling, and no drill noise or vibration. The stress and anxiety often associated with dental work is therefore eliminated when you experience quick, effective, and essentially pain-free laser procedures. Also, postoperative sensitivity is greatly limited by laser dentistry, and recovery time is much quicker than with traditional methods.

In severe cases, periodontal disease needs to be treated by a Periodontist, a specialist.  If this is needed, Dr. Fletcher will refer you.
