Laser Dentistry

Scalpel-Free Dentistry

Laser-Powered Treatments

Laser dentistry is making scalpels and sutures a thing of the past for many procedures that we perform. When you consider all the benefits laser dentistry offers—less pain, bleeding, sensitivity, and swelling, with accelerated procedure completion times and recovery—the reason comes into sharp focus.

With Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure, or LANAP®, we safely eliminate bacteria on and underneath the gums, as well as remove diseased gum tissues using light instead of more invasive instruments typically associated with surgery and incisions. LANAP incorporates a PerioLase® laser system, which can take the place of traditional methods for a variety of treatments.

Laser dentistry is one of the advantages we offer here at our Bluffton, SC office, a unique environment featuring spa-like surroundings and amenities in addition to the biologically based, minimally invasive treatments designed to improve your overall health. We invite you to make an appointment and discover more of them.

  • Gingivectomy: If you want to see more of your teeth and less of your gums, we can balance out your smile by removing a small portion of your gums and reshaping the remaining soft tissues.
  • Peri-implantitis treatment: When bone and tissues around a dental implant become infected (often due to poor dental hygiene or other underlying health issues), we can remedy it and save the implant.

  • Frenectomy: Sometimes the tissues that attach your upper lip to your gums and your tongue to the bottom of your mouth (known as “frenula”) make eating and speaking difficult. We can remove problem tissues and give your mouth normal freedom of movement.
  • Gum disease treatment: We can remove gum disease-causing bacteria and diseased gum tissues before periodontitis and other far more serious health problems occur.
