Many patients with gum disease do not realize how much of an impact this disease has on their overall health. Several studies show a link between periodontal disease and heart health, diabetes, pre-term low birth weight delivery, Alzheimer’s disease, and many more.
Tar Heel Periodontics and Implant Dentistry is proud to offer the latest technology available for periodontal therapy: laser treatment. There are numerous advantages to using laser therapy for treatment of gum disease. Dr. Michael Kretchmer, Dr. Michael Stella, Dr. Justin Valentine, Dr. Reinaldo Deliz-Guzman and Dr. Elizabeth Farrell Irons are fully trained and licensed to perform Laser Periodontal Therapy using FDA cleared laser procedures that can reduce discomfort and recovery time associated with traditional gum surgery used for treating gum disease.
