Lasers can be used to treat periodontal disease. Current controlled studies have shown that similar results have been found with the laser compared to specific other treatment options, including scaling and root planing alone. Scaling and root planing is a traditional non-surgical therapy used to treat periodontal diseases.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
“I just need to say this was one of the best experiences I have had. I am finally pain free after being in pain for over 2 months. The last place I went broke a bone in my gum area and it was protruding out. Dr. Hutton pulled it out and literally told me exactly what was going on in such detail that I could understand. I would recommend them to anyone that wants to be taken care of from the time you walk in until the time you leave. The staff is amazing from start to finish. Thank-you Dr. Hutton for your kindness and making me feel less anxious.”
