PerioLase

This is a trademarked dental procedure for removing diseased gum tissue due to chronic periodontitis. Before PerioLase, this procedure would have to be done with a scalpel followed by a tissue graft to replace the damaged gums.

PerioLase is minimally invasive. No sutures are needed because the laser seals the treated area immediately. Therapy is easier, cleaner quicker and more effective.
