Laser Gum Disease Treatment is the most advanced way to treat periodontal disease.

Laser Gum Disease Treatment makes treating gum disease less painful and more efficient than ever before.
For Laser Gum Disease Treatment, Dr. Yemoto utilizes the PerioLase MVP-7 laser to remove the harmful bacteria from the gums. The laser will eliminate the bacteria while promoting the growth of new cells. This results in minimal bleeding and remarkably rapid healing!

Modular Gum Therapy
“Modular Gum Therapy” is an interactive, non-surgical approach to treating gum infection (Periodontal Disease). Three different modalities are used to control the bacteria causing your infection. Bacterial film and deposits are first gently scrubbed from your teeth as well as all root surfaces. Next, a germicidal liquid is used to kill bacteria by irrigating the infected gum tissue. This is the interactive part. You will be asked, and instructed to use the same bacteria killing liquid at home for a short period of time. Since bacteria not only live on the surfaces of teeth, but also in the tissue next to your teeth, an antibiotic specific to the bad bacteria causing your infection may be used. The particular antibiotic used will be based on bacterial testing from infected sites in your mouth.
