Your Smile and Overall Health
At our Fifth Avenue Periodontics office, we offer laser dentistry to our patients as a safe and effective way to maintain the support structures of the teeth. Laser dentistry is used for a multitude of procedures including:
- Modifying the shape of the gum line in cosmetic dentistry
- CO2 laser technology is used to remove tumors or lesions. This technology allows for Dr. Clifford Melnick to have exceptional control in performing a wide variety of periodontal treatments.
- Laser dentistry can be used to minimize the amount of anesthetics or sutures needed during a procedure. Laser dentistry can also minimize the amount of recovery time, reduce bleeding, minimize the chances of bacterial infection, and help patients recover faster.
Laser dentistry is safe for individuals of all ages, including women who are pregnant, patients with diabetes, and individuals with pacemakers. At Fifth Avenue Periodontics, we are passionate about delivering only the best in laser dentistry procedures to ensure that our patients spend less time in the dentist’s chair, and more time smiling. With this dental technology, we are able to transform smiles more quickly, efficiently, and with less reported pain in the process.
