Laser Dentistry at Dr. Daniel Tebbi, DMD, Encino CA 91436
At Dr. Daniel Tebbi, DMD - Cosmetic Dentistry & Orthodontics we are proud to offer laser dentistry with FDA approved, state-of-the-art laser technology. Laser dentistry has proven to be extremely effective for many different periodontal/gum procedures without the drawbacks of conventional and more invasive surgical treatments. the laser itself is a small, handheld instrument that is able to generate an extremely concentrated beam of light, and a wide variety of gum-related procedures could be done with ease.
With laser procedure we are able to eliminate harmful bacteria hidden beneath the gum line and manage gum disease, and help remove infected tissue. It’s able to accomplish these tasks while not affecting the surrounding healthy tissue, which helps cut down on any patient discomfort and ensure a speedy recovery.
The laser actually cauterizes blood vessels, sanitizes the area, and seals delicate nerve endings as it goes, dramatically reducing any potential pain, bleeding, and swelling.
Laser treatment also encourages the growth of new, healthy gum tissue that wraps tightly around the teeth. This makes it much harder for plaque and bacteria to accumulate below the gum line in the future, lowering a patient’s chances of reinfection.

• Immediate and excellent results
