Dr. Navid Rahmani of Contemporary Periodontics & Implant Surgery in Midtown NYC, is now offering laser surgery for patients with gum disease. Laser gum surgery is very effective in treating gum disease while being less invasive than traditional gum surgery.
Anyone in the Midtown NYC area requiring treatment for gum disease can now visit Dr. Rahmani for the very latest laser gum treatments in NYC. Dr. Navid Rahmani has the WaterlaseiPlus laser. This utilizes YSGG energy and is able to treat the gums and other soft tissues as well as bone. Treatment is very gentle as the energy produced by the laser is combined with a spray of water and air. Unlike traditional dental drills, lasers do not produce any vibration or heat. Dental lasers provide a greater degree of precision so only diseased tissues are removed, leaving all the healthy tissue intact.
Laser surgery can precisely remove gum tissue while laser energy helps to sterilize the area, removing more bacteria and increasing the efficacy of treatment. The same laser energy helps to seal any blood vessels that are cut during treatment, eliminating the need for sutures. Patients find laser surgery gum treatments far less invasive than traditional procedures. There is minimal discomfort and often very little need for local anesthetic. Afterwards recovery times are shorter and healing is quicker with fewer side effects such as swelling and bleeding.
Gum disease is often called a silent disease and begins with gingivitis. This is is an inflammatory condition that can quickly progress into periodontal disease, an advanced form of gum disease. With periodontal disease, the gums pull away from the teeth, creating deep periodontal pockets that can quickly become infected. This infection along with the inflammation caused by the bacteria can create significant health problems that impact the whole body. Periodontal disease has been linked to certain cancers, stroke, diabetes and cardiovascular disease, which is why it is so important for patients with signs of gum disease to seek urgent treatment.
Typical symptoms caused by gingivitis include bleeding gums and as the disease progresses patients may have persistent bad breath or will notice teeth becoming loose. Anyone who notices these warning signs should book a consultation with Dr. Rahmani and this doesn’t require a referral from their general dentist. Patients can find more information about laser dentistry by visiting the practice website or calling the office direct.
