NEW LONDON, Conn., Jan. 13, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Renowned periodontist, Dr. Gregory A. Toback of Shoreline Periodontics and Dental Implants, recently published groundbreaking research regarding the use of laser dentistry to treat intrabony defects caused by progressive gum disease. Dr. Toback not only helped author the research, but served as a participating investigator collecting data for the research. Dr. Toback provides advanced laser dentistry and revolutionary periodontal care in New London, CT and Westerly, RI.
Published in the American Academy of Periodontology (AAP) Journal, Dr. Toback's research compared the use of laser dentistry to the minimally invasive surgical technique (MIST) in the treatment of advanced gum disease. The research analyzed patients from the private practices of six periodontists at five locations in the continental United States. The six investigating doctors varied in experience with laser dentistry, from novice to highly experienced.
With the dental laser, all six doctors were able to achieve repeatable outcomes that compare with traditional methods. While both groups reported low post-operative pain, procedure times were less with the dental laser. Additionally, patients who received the laser dentistry treatment reported less bleeding, swelling, bruising, and use of ice following the procedure.
Dr. Toback has served as an industry leader for over two decades. In addition to maintaining a membership in many dental organizations throughout the country, he is one of only 10 periodontists in the Society for Contemporary and Progressive Periodontists (S.C.P.P.) and his practice is one of 23 participants in the prestigious McGuire Institute. In fact, to share this knowledge and stay on the cutting-edge, his practice also holds its own study clubs, the Shoreline Periodontics Synergy Study Club and the Shoreline Periodontics Hygiene Study Club. Additionally, Dr. Toback holds certifications in the most advanced periodontal treatments available today.
Dr. Toback has training and certification with multiple dental laser technologies. He can provide laser dentistry for gum disease, gum recession, and gummy smiles. He is also certified in conscious sedation, allowing him to treat patients with anxiety and apprehension toward dental care. Dr. Toback works alongside periodontist Dr. Marianne Urbanski at Shoreline Periodontics. Together, they provide care that is as compassionate as it is skilled at offices in New London, CT and Westerly, RI.
