Laser Dentistry in Fort Worth, TX

Laser dentistry involves using special dental lasers to complete treatments more comfortably, quickly, and effectively. At Custom Periodontics, we are dedicated to consistently providing you with the best possible dental care. Our periodontist and dental team continuously update their education and our office to provide you with a more pleasant and efficient dental visit. We are proud to offer laser dental treatment to ensure that your dental experience is comfortable and positive.

Lasers can be used for several dental treatments. During your visit, our periodontist may recommend laser dentistry to:

  • Treat periodontal disease by removing bacteria and infected tissue
  • Cure (harden) a dental filling
  • Remove the decayed or damaged portion of a tooth
  • Treat cold sores and canker sores
  • Speed up teeth whitening
  • Recontour the gum line

There are many benefits of laser dentistry. Many treatments completed with a dental laser are very comfortable and may not require the use of an anesthetic. Dental lasers also shorten treatment time and healing time and decrease the risk of infection following treatment. In addition, lasers minimize bleeding both during and after treatment, and because they are extremely precise, we can treat the targeted area without affecting nearby healthy tissues.

At Custom Periodontics, we are proud to offer Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP) in Fort Worth, Texas. During this non-invasive treatment option, Dr. Shelby Nelson utilizes a laser to remove tartar and a tiny amount of diseased tissue, which aids in reducing the bacteria associated with gum disease. For more information on LANAP, please contact our office at 817-738-2334 to schedule an appointment with our periodontist today!

Laser gum treatment is a type of treatment for periodontal disease that is completed using a dental laser. Our periodontist may recommend laser gum treatment if periodontal disease affects your smile. Also known as gum disease, periodontal disease is a degenerative condition caused by bacteria in plaque. As the plaque builds up on the teeth, the bacteria may cause inflammation and infection in the gums and supporting tissues. Gum disease can lead to tooth loss, bone loss, and receding gums when left untreated. Laser gum treatment is used to kill bacteria, remove infected tissue, and encourage the growth of healthy gum tissue. Through treatment, we strive to halt the progress of the disease and promote the development of healthy tissue.

Periodontal treatment completed using dental lasers is typically more comfortable than traditional methods. You may not even require an anesthetic for your laser gum treatment. Laser gum treatment is efficient and comfortable. Laser dentistry often eliminates the need for stitches and decreases your risk of infection following treatment, and dental lasers also minimize bleeding.
