We are pleased to offer periodontal laser treatment at our Bloomfield Hills dental office. Periodontal laser treatment involves using a dental laser to treat periodontal disease (gum disease). It is essential to properly treat periodontal disease as soon as possible; untreated periodontal disease can lead to tooth loss, receding gums, and bone loss. Our experienced dentists, Dr. Maylath and Dr. McQuirter, use lasers to remove bacteria and infected gum tissue, which helps to encourage the growth of healthy gum tissue. Laser dentistry is comfortable and anesthesia is rarely needed for periodontal laser treatment. Dental lasers also help to minimize bleeding and reduce the risk of infection.
