At Viruet Periodontics, our team is committed to using only the best technologies to provide the very best dental and periodontic care possible. Our signature laser dentistry services offer a long list of advantages designed to make your treatment more comfortable and effective.
Viruet Periodontics is proud to feature the Fotona Lightwalker, an award-winning laser dentistry system that is known for its versatility and precision.
Our Fort Myers, FL periodontal office provides gentle laser gingival recontouring to patients who have concerns about their gum lines when they smile. Treatment of a "gummy smile" is often a straightforward procedure that addresses the thickness of the gums. For this treatment, Dr. Reyes-Viruet uses our advanced dental laser to gently re-contour the gumline or correct an uneven gum line.
What to Expect from Your Laser Dentistry Appointment
Prior to your treatment, Dr. Reyes-Viruet will conduct a detailed consultation to gain a complete understanding of the smile appearance you desire. Then, by gently removing excess gum tissue, Dr. Reyes-Viruet will provide a lengthened appearance to the teeth and reveal the beautiful smile of your dreams! As an added bonus, this service can also promote healthier gums.
Laser gum disease treatment can treat the infection without the need to cut away gum tissue. It is a minimally-invasive procedure that offers a fast healing time and the heat from the laser can promote healthy tissue regeneration.
Laser therapy may be an integral part of your periodontal care treatment plan. After an initial exam to determine the severity of the condition, Dr. Reyes-Viruet will use a laser to deep clean the areas of infection. Our laser is minimally invasive, designed to minimize bruising, swelling, and sensitivity after treatment. Laser treatment is known to both repair the damage caused by periodontal disease and help regenerate lost bone and gum tissue. The laser’s ability to detect the difference between healthy and diseased tissue allows Dr. Reyes-Viruet to safely remove bacteria from the gums without cutting, damaging, or removing healthy tissue.
Our doctors use this laser to prepare cavities for fillings, perform a broad range of gum procedures, complete complex oral surgeries, and more—all with virtually no discomfort to the patient and very little anesthesia (if any) required.
