Dr. Waasdorp performs minimally invasive laser periodontal therapy, offering patients state of the art periodontal treatment rather than having traditional periodontal surgery. Dr. Waasdorp is the first periodontist on the Main Line to offer this technology to his patients.
Doctors have used lasers for many years to provide better care for their patients. LASIK vision correction and laser procedures in dermatology are widely accepted forms of treatment. Advanced laser technology can now be used for your periodontal, cosmetic, implant and surgical care in our Philadelphia area practice.
Here are some of the benefits you can expect to experience with the Laser Deep Pocket Therapy.
The YSGG uses laser energy and a gentle spray of water to perform a wide range of dental procedures without the heat, vibration and pressure associated with the dental drill, and without using a scalpel to make incisions.
The YSGG removes diseased tissue much more precisely than conventional methods. Greater precision in removing diseased tissues preserves more of the healthy tissues in your mouth. Minimally invasive treatment leads to quicker and better healing.
Less Bleeding and Swelling
Due to its conservative, gentle cutting action and coagulating capabilities, the YSGG performs many procedures with little or no bleeding and less post-operative swelling.
