Good News about GUM DISEASE!
If you or someone you care about has serious
gum disease you already know that it can lead to tooth loss. But most people
feel that the cure is worse than the disease. With scalpels, stitches, pain and
the unsightly loss of gum tissue it certainly isn’t fun.
But now there is an FDA approved,
highly effective, painless solution. It involves laser assisted gum treatments.
Dr. Elmore is one of the first dentists in the state of Washington
to have undergone extensive training at the prestigious Institute for Advanced
Laser Dentistry (I.A.L.D.) in California.
He is well versed in the use of the Periolase laser (Millennium Dental
Technologies) and the Laser ANAP procedure.
The treatments consist of moving an
extremely thin laser tip within the small space between the tooth surface and
the gum tissue. The precisely controlled laser energy vaporizes bacteria and
toxins within the pocket and stimulates healing. This tilts the balance in favor
of your immune system so that your body can regenerate lost tissue. In this
newly sterilized site, Dr.Elmore consistently sees re-growth of lost support tissue (including bone!) and best of all,
minimal shrinkage so that you can hardly tell anything was done. Most patients
don’t even need to take pain pills after the procedure! You can treat your
whole mouth in 2 simple appointments, and the cost is less than traditional
So don’t be afraid. This is truly
easy and cost effective. Dr. Elmore and
his staff would be happy to answer any questions that you may have.
