Frequently Asked Laser Questions in Vancouver & Burnaby, BC

Frequently Asked Laser Questions Vancouver & Burnaby, BC

How are lasers used for gum disease treatment in Vancouver?

Laser energy is therapeutic and extremely effective at removing embedded bacteria when aimed between the gums and teeth. Aside from gum surgery alternatives, dental lasers are also great for bonding fillings and increasing the effectiveness of teeth whitening treatments.

Why is the PerioLase® MVP-7™ considered best for laser gum surgery alternatives?

The PerioLase® MVP-7™ is a Health Canada-cleared dental laser that provides such remarkable, science-based evidence of gum disease removal. Backed by human histological studies, this laser is able to identify and destroy bacteria and diseased tissue without harming healthy tissue. It even stimulates new bone growth, and is used during the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP®).

Are laser gum surgery alternatives painful?

Laser gum disease treatment in Vancouver with Dr. Steven Tsoung is gentler than other gum surgery alternatives available. There is no cutting or heavy bleeding and no sutures. Laser gum surgery is specifically designed with your comfort in mind.

Are laser gum surgery alternatives expensive?

Laser gum disease treatment in Vancouver is often close in price to traditional gum surgery.

Is gum disease treatment in Vancouver safe?

Gum surgery alternatives such as LANAP® are 100 percent safe and effective when performed according to prescribed practices, and Dr. Tsoung only uses the Canada Health-cleared LANAP® procedure with the PerioLase® MVP-7. Patients are asked to shield their eyes during laser gum disease treatment in Vancouver by wearing the protective glasses, provided for the same reasons you wear sunglasses in the sun.

How can I find out if my dentist is trained and qualified to provide gum disease treatment in Vancouver?

Doctors who provide gum disease treatment in Vancouver using laser gum surgery alternatives should present you with documentation from a leading school or organization to support their training and expertise. Certifications from the Academy of Laser Dentistry (ALD) and/or training with the laser manufacturer are valid examples of proof. Dr. Tsoung is certified to use LANAP® in Canada.

How do I know if gum disease treatment in Vancouver will work for me?

Laser gum surgery alternatives are designed to work well for nearly everyone, but schedule a consultation with Dr. Tsoung about gum disease treatment in Vancouver to learn if you qualify.
