At the office of Dr. Geoffrey Edmunds, our Guilderland Laser Dentist offers laser therapy, a revolutionary type of laser dentistry treatment. Laser dentistry has the ability to remove cavities, perform periodontal care without pain and without the need for any sedatives or pain injections.
Laser treatment for gum disease can be very effective as well. Laser therapy can have the same effectiveness on periodontal disease as scaling and root planing. Each laser has a different wavelength and power level that will be used safely by our Guilderland laser dentist during your procedure. Dr. Edmunds is highly qualified and certified to offer this type of dentistry. Only a certified dentist who specializes in laser therapy should perform these types of techniques. If not, damage can be done to the tissues if the appropriate wavelength or power level is not used. Most insurance carriers cover laser therapy as well, but you should check with your insurance carrier just to double check and to see exactly what procedures are covered. Most times insurance carriers reimburse for the procedure being performed instead of the device, so reimbursement should be the same. Treating periodontal disease should be a priority, because if gums recede and the disease progresses, tooth loss and bone loss can be a side effect. Gum disease can be stopped in its tracks with proper therapy and a good oral hygiene regimen.
