Laser Assisted Perio Therapy
Headed by Dr. Abbas Tejani and Dr. Omar Kassam, Kerrisdale Dental Centre offers cosmetic & general dental services that not only enhance your dental but also your overall health. Each patient is unique for us so we offer customized services to suit your needs.
Laser Assisted Perio Therapy (LAPT) is an exceptional method for reducing deep pockets. Rather than more invasive therapy, such as pocket reduction surgery involving scalpels and cutting the gums back, we can use a laser to eliminate disease causing bacteria from the pocket between the gum and tooth. Most patients experience little to no recovery time.
The laser tip actually attracts the pigment in the diseased tissue so we can remove only the unhealthy tissue, leaving the healthy tissue untouched. In the hands of our skilled hygienists, the laser is a powerful tool to promote gum healing, pocket reduction, and overall health.
New Patients Always Welcome!
