Dr. Fung is proud to offer the latest technology available for periodontal treatment - Laser Therapy.
There are numerous advantages to using laser therapy as opposed to the traditional methods requiring scalpel and sutures.
Laser Therapy Benefits
With laser treatment, there is reduced or no bleeding, minimized swelling, and no drill noise or vibration. The stress and anxiety often associated with dental work is therefore eliminated when you experience quick, effective and essentially pain-free laser procedures.
Also, post operative sensitivity is greatly limited by laser dentistry, and recovery time is much quicker than with traditional methods. In fact, due to the less invasive nature of the laser technique, the mouth begins to heal immediately after work is completed.
Reduced Risk of Infection
The laser's high energy light beam acts as a sterilizer on the area it is working, thereby reducing the risk of bacterial infections and relapses.
