Non Surgical Gum Disease Treatments
Have You Been Told You Need Gum Surgery?
At Vista Dental Care, we use laser technology for the non-surgical treatment of gum disease. Used in place of scalpels and sutures, lasers offer precisely placed incisions and reduced bleeding, with a goal of reduced discomfort and improved healing. The laser can also be employed for other soft tissue procedures, such as treating oral lesions or reducing the look of a “gummy” smile. Ask us about this at your next visit!

Symptoms Acid erosion on teeth can lead to a variety of symptoms that should be evaluated by a dentist. As the outer layer of your teeth wears away, you may experience tooth sensitivity. This sensitivity often leads to pain when you consume hot or cold foods and drinks. Your teeth may also become discolored.
