NEW TECHNOLOGY – NEW COMFORT
Tartar, associated with inflamed and bleeding gums, is removed form the root surface of the tooth using an ultrasonic scaler and small instruments.
Then, a small amount of light energy from a laser is directed through a tiny fiber, which is gently placed between the gum and tooth. This light energy removes a tiny amount of diseased tissue and aids in reducing the bacteria associated with the disease. After the area is thoroughly cleaned, the body can heal the area naturally.
Typically we use the same billing codes as traditional gum surgery and the laser treatment is generally no more expensive than traditional surgery. There are other factors which may affect the cost, such as the severity of the periodontal disease, and how many teeth are involved. Many insurance plans pay only for a portion of this treatment. Patients should discuss their payment options with the dental office personnel as we offer financing for this treatment.
The dramatically increased comfort for our patients made the new system attractive to our office. We do encourage patients to take care of the need now to reduce further damage to their gums, teeth and bone.
Thank you New Port Beach Perio and Implant Center ! I had such a fear of the dentist and pain before coming to you. Dr. Lim and staff was so compassionate and caring in easing my fear. My implants and teeth look beautiful. Your customer service is excellent. It's wonderful to know the PATIENT matters to you. I look forward to coming again and I highly recommend your great service. Thank you!
A friend told me about this place because I had tooth pain. The office is very nice and the x ray equipment is digital. It turns out,I had a broken tooth and needed an implant. The staff worked through their lunch break to accommodate me so I surprised them with a lunch delivery. My surgery cost was not as high as I expected and the service was top notch. I will definitely recommend my friends and family to this dental office.
