Lakeland Periodontist For Your Oral Health 


A periodontist is a dentist who is trained to work on the supporting structures around the teeth. Periodontal disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults. A visit to a dentist who is also a periodontist will get to the literal root of your tooth problems, and treat the soft tissue and gums that support the teeth. 

Laser dentistry has been on the rise for the past two decades. A periodontist will use laser dentistry to offer a way to treat many issues with less pain and bleeding in the gums; issues such as gum disease, tooth decay, lesions, and tooth discoloration. 

Pros of Laser Dentistry Use For a Periodontist:

  • No drilling sounds 
  • Preserves more healthy tooth 
  • Less bleeding in soft tissues 
  • Less anxiety for patients who are afraid of drilling 

Generally, the laser is preferable to the drill, however a laser cannot treat teeth that already have fillings in place. A combination of laser and drill is sometimes necessary for a periodontist
