If you are one of the many people who suffer from gum disease, you may already know a deep cleaning is usually the best way to bring your mouth back to optimal health. Traditional methods for this procedure can often be extremely time consuming and sometimes a bit uncomfortable for the patient. To improve upon this very crucial procedure, our office now offers periodontal treatment with the Lightwalker Laser. Dr. Shukovsky is a member of the Academy of Laser Dentistry and participated in the annual meeting of February 2014 in Scottsdale, Arizona.
Laser dentistry is comprised of three different types of lasers. Diode, Nd:Yag and Erbium:Yag. Each has its own ‘target’ tissue. The ofﬁce of Dr. Shukovsky has all three of these lasers in order to provide optimal treatment for the speciﬁc issues at hand.
With respect to gum problems, Dr. Edward Shukovsky uses this revolutionary new device to gently remove any diseased tissue and disinfect areas affected by periodontal disease. Most importantly, Dr. Shukovsky can treat patients with virtually no pain! The Lightwalker Laser allows him to control the output of the laser, leading to gentle and comfortable treatment while eliminating the need for anesthesia in most cases.
Ultimately, gum disease treatment with the Lightwalker Laser can help restore good oral health. To schedule an appointment with Dr. Shukovsky, or to learn more about how the Lightwalker Laser may benefit you, please contact our office today.
