Dr. Kim Fitzgerald and Associates now offers laser gum surgery in the form of Biolase WaterLase™ treatments for patients with various types of dental problems. Those who are affected by the painful symptoms of gum disease and other dangerous oral problems are invited to make Dr. Fitzgerald their preferred Sarver, PA dentist.

Dr. Fitzgerald is an experienced Sarver, PA dentist who knows firsthand how dangerous it can be to leave periodontal disease and other oral diseases untreated. In order to encourage patients to receive treatment without delay, Dr. Fitzgerald now offers a gentle and effective type of laser gum surgery called Biolase WaterLase™. This treatment method combines the gentleness of water with the soothing effects of air and the accuracy of laser light to detect and remove diseased gum tissue without causing trauma to the surrounding soft tissue in the mouth. Due to the fact that the laser causes minimal heat, vibration or pressure during treatment, pain is minimized. In some cases, Dr. Fitzgerald only needs to administer a small amount of anesthetic or no anesthetic at all prior to treating the patient with the Biolase WaterLase™ laser.

In addition to decreased levels of pain during the procedure, the Biolase WaterLase™ system also reduces the risk of excessive bleeding and other common complications associated with more invasive forms of gum surgery. Patients who receive laser-based treatments are also shown to recover more quickly and return to their normal daily activities in a timelier manner. Although the Biolase WaterLase™ system is most frequently used in the treatment of periodontal disease, it is also used in cavity preparations to increase the bond strength of fillings. The laser-based technology used in the WaterLase™ system is as gentle when cutting through enamel and bone as it is when cutting through soft gum tissue in the mouth.

Dr. Fitzgerald is proud to be a Sarver, PA dentist who is qualified to utilize the safe and gentle Biolase WaterLase™ system to treat a variety of patient needs. Those who are interested in benefitting from the precise and gentle nature of laser gum surgery are encouraged to schedule a consultation with her practice.
