Laser Periodontal Therapy

Southbay Periodontics is pleased to announce that we now offer the Periolase MVP-7, the World's first digital dental laser to treat periodontal disease. The Periolase MVP-7 was specifically designed to treat gum (periodontal disease) and is the only FDA Approved laser gum treatment procedure.  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 in our office.

The Periolase MVP-7 laser now gives us a gentle and effective way to treat periodontal disease Without traditional cutting of the gums.  Patients who have this form of laser treatment report that they have little or no discomfort after this procedure.  

With this new treatment capability we are able to safely and effectively treat periodontal disease.  If you are experiencing bleeding gums, sensitivity, mobile teeth, bad breath, and have been advised you have periodontal disease this procedure can provide you an opportunity to regain better oral health.

Please call our office for more information about this laser procedure and its applicability to your dental needs.
