Laser Periodontal Treatment™
Although gum disease can be debilitating if left untreated, many people do not seek treatment because of the pain and lengthy recovery times associated with traditional periodontal surgery. However, Laser Periodontal Treatment™ (LPT™) is revolutionizing periodontal surgery and is now available at Roman Shlafer, DDS, PLLC for residents of the Detroit, Livonia, and Farmington areas. This breakthrough in laser dentistry makes the gum disease treatment procedure virtually painless. LPT™ utilizes the PerioLase® laser by Millennium Dental Technologies, Inc., the only FDA-approved laser for periodontal surgery.

The Laser Periodontal Treatment™ Procedure
Surgery with PerioLase® is a straightforward laser dentistry procedure performed at our practice. First, Dr. Shlafer applies a local anesthetic.
Next, he uses the PerioLase® laser to gently clear away diseased tissue from the gums and jawbone. This is a quick, virtually painless step that requires no cutting of the gum tissue. The PerioLase® laser aids in blood clotting, forming a barrier that expedites the healing process and eliminates the need for sutures. After modifying the diseased tissue, the dentist smoothes the tooth's root to prevent future tartar buildup. Finally, the treated area is left to heal. Most patients can return to work the same day as the procedure, and many patients recover fully in as little as two weeks.

Dr. Shlafer provides patients from Detroit, Livonia, and Farmington with laser dentistry technology that detects cavities hidden below the tooth's surface. By emitting light at a wavelength that specifically highlights tooth decay below the enamel, the laser enables our dentist to detect and fill hidden cavities before they cause excessive damage to the tooth, without scraping or prodding the tooth enamel.

Gum recontouring can make a dramatic difference when used in smile makeovers and other aesthetic procedures. By trimming excess gum tissue covering the teeth, cosmetic gum lifting can quickly produce a brighter smile. Laser dentistry allows Dr. Shlafer to perform the gum lifting procedure with great precision. The laser vaporizes excess gum tissue with very little effect on surrounding tissues, making treatment relatively comfortable, safe, and effective.
