The gums are a very important part of your dental and overall health. They are a critical part of a beautiful smile and let you know when you may have deeper dental issues that need correction. Even so, some estimates suggest that as many as 80% of Americans are dealing with some form of periodontal disease.

At Galleria Dentistry we use the latest technology to diagnose and treat any problems you may have. Periodontal laser therapy is an effective, less-invasive procedure that allows us to give you the treatment you need and get you smiling again.

The Diode Tissue Laser

Dr. Geronemus uses the diode tissue laser to address many problems and perform a number of procedures non-surgically. In the past, many of these problems would need to be referred to a specialist, but now, with this technology, we’re able to do it in our office.
