Here at Farshid Ariz D.M.D., we believe in using the best cutting-edge technology to treat your gum disease. That’s why Dr. Farshid Ariz is trained in laser periodontal therapy.

As you may have already experienced, periodontitis may result in gum recession – that is, a condition in which your gums recede from your teeth, exposing some of the tooth’s root. You need an efficient way to remove diseased gums and clean this area of plaque and tartar in order to regenerate healthy gum tissue.

Here’s how the procedure will typically go: Dr. Farshid Ariz will use a special dental laser to access and remove inflamed and diseased gum tissue. Once the root is exposed, we will carefully scrape off the tartar and plaque from around the gumline, smoothing out the root to remove rough spots and prevent future infection. This allows the exposed area to regenerate and heal healthily and quickly.

Lasers are amazing for several reasons. First, they require no anesthetic. Second, they are very accurate and precise. Finally, they are much less invasive than surgery, resulting in shorter recovery and healing times.
