With modern dental technology and techniques, the periodontal treatment offered at the Garden City dental practice of Dr. Nancy Tobin is gentle and painless. This treatment restores gums to health and helps protect against serious health risks, including stroke, heart attack, cancer and more.
Dr Tobin and her team use the Cavitron and the Piezo Scaler – both soft tissue lasers – in the treatment of gum disease. Both lasers use high frequency ultrasonic waves to clean the teeth and deliver gentle gum treatment.
They remove tartar above and below the gum line, and promote healing of the gums and reattachment to the tooth root. Once the gums are clean, Dr. Tobin may place Arestin, a powerful antibiotic created just for the treatment of periodontal bacteria.
