Laser Gum Treatment: All Gain, No Pain

At our practice, Dr. Nishita Gandhi and our team pride ourselves on offering the latest dental technology to our patients in

There’s a good reason why so many people have mixed feelings about a trip to the dentist. The injections and drills are uncomfortable (to say the least) as they come into contact with the sensitive nerves in your mouth. With our exciting laser technology, we can keep the discomfort to a minimum while we preserve the health of your gums, providing the ultimate win-win situation.

At our practice, Dr. Nishita Gandhi and our team pride ourselves on offering the latest dental technology to our patients in the Bronx area of New York. We’re particularly excited about our Epic X™ diode laser by Biolase, which is changing how we address your gum health.

Take a moment to explore how laser gum treatments offer incredible gain, without all the pain.

Laser dentistry, a soft approach

One of the primary concerns when it comes to dental procedures is to get the job done right without creating pain or collateral damage in the process. Laser dentistry answers the call on each of these fronts.

To start, the Epic X is a global leader in soft tissue procedures. The system’s pre-initiated diode tips cut your procedure time considerably while improving precision and accuracy on our end. These tips are designed specifically for the soft (and sensitive) tissue inside your mouth and allow us to target problem areas far better than traditional techniques.

What we mean by this is that there’s little to no collateral damage as we use this state-of-the-art laser technology to address only the tissue that needs treatment without compromising your surrounding gums.

Less pain and less time

If you have gum disease and we need to perform a deep cleaning or a scaling and root planing procedure, our Epic X system can get the job done in a fraction of the time of traditional techniques, and with far less discomfort.

The intense beams of light energy from the Epic X excise damaged tissue easily without traumatizing the nerves in your mouth as drills or scalpels can. The intense laser energy makes quick work of the diseased tissue and cauterizes the area instantly, reducing your recovery time.

And this last point is an important one — with gum work you can experience a good deal of post-procedural pain. By using our Epic X system, we’re able to send you home with healthier gums that are already well on the road to healing.

Less risk of infection

Another great benefit with our Epic X system is that it removes all the harmful bacteria as we work. The system is equipped with a laser bacterial reduction feature, which ensures that we kill the infection-causing bacteria in your gums to prevent any further damage. 

By using laser-assisted periodontal therapies, we’re able to clear your mouth of infected tissue and ensure that no further damage is done after we sterilize your gums — all in one short procedure.

If you’d like to tackle your gum issues with the latest in pain-free dental technology, please give one of our two Bronx offices a call, send us a message here on our website, or use our online scheduling tool to set up an appointment.
