Laser Gum Surgery in El Segundo, CA
Minimally-Invasive Gum Disease Treatment
Has your dentist told you that you need gum surgery, such as osseous surgery, to remove the harmful bacteria that contributes to gum disease?
This type of treatment, while effective, involves cutting and stitching of the gums, and often takes days or weeks to completely heal. Modern laser technology allow us to complete these types of treatments faster and more comfortably than ever before. You may be a candidate for this minimally-invasive treatment if you have been diagnosed with gum disease.Contact Us About a Free Consultation

Dental Laser Gum Surgery Solves Peri-Implantitis Issues
Peri-implantitis is the inflammation of the gums around a dental implant. If not treated, the implant may fall out or need to be removed. Rather than risking this kind of loss or damage to the bones and gums, it is best to find a treatment provider with the expertise to care for patients with peri-implantitis.Schedule an Appointment
How Lasers Have Changed Traditional Gum Disease Treatment
Patients with progressive gum disease develop pockets between the teeth and gums. These pockets trap bacteria and are a breeding ground for aggressive bacteria to cause damage to the teeth, gum tissue and bone.
Using BIOLASE WaterLase® iPlus™ 2.0 laser technology, Dr. Hossein Javid can access gum disease and specifically target harmful bacteria to produce a healthier oral environment. With this type of procedure, patients experience minimal discomfort and are often back to work the following day.
