How will LPD help me? 

By removing the inflammation, your body has the energy to heal naturally. The laser light kills bacteria and creates a clean, environment for healing. 

Am I a candidate for LPD? 

If you have gingivitis, LPD can help reverse symptoms. LPD can also be used to treat patients on a perio-maintence program. 

Does LPD Hurt? 

Not at all! LPS is quick and painless. If you are very sensitive, a topical anesthetic may be used.

Are there any side effects?

There are no known side-effects of LPD in over 25 years of therapy, just bigger smiles! The treatment is safe for use around crowns, bridges, sealants, and implants.

I’m about to have surgery. Should I have LPD?

LPD is beneficial to patients who have recently had surgery, or are scheduled to have surgery to reduce bacteria that may enter the bloodstream. 

Why do I need to treat gum disease? 

Gum disease has been linked to serious health concerns including heart disease, stroke, diabetes, pre-term birth, certain cancers, and more.
