At Madden Dental, we not only clean teeth and create beautiful smiles, we use advanced laser therapy to change our patients’ lives. Periodontal lasers improve the future of patients who suffer from gum disease: They can save teeth and prolong oral health.

The importance of a healthy mouth goes beyond beautiful smiles and cavity-free teeth. Growing evidence suggests a correlation between advanced gum disease, or periodontitis, and systemic conditions within the body. Periodontal infection has been linked to coronary heart disease, stroke, diabetes, bacterial pneumonia, pregnancy complications, and more. Eliminating infection prevents cross contamination, reduces the severity of other diseases, and improves overall health.

Dr. Karisha Madden and our team are committed to ensuring our patients do not suffer from inadequate gum disease treatment. We use lasers to treat periodontal inflammation at a microscopic level. Using light energy, a periodontal laser targets diseased tissue without affecting surrounding healthy areas, and seals blood vessels and nerve endings to reduce bleeding, swelling, and discomfort. The focused light of the laser is so powerful that it can destroy the otherwise inaccessible colonies of bacteria, as well as create a healing environment. We aim to cure periodontal disease by eliminating the infection at its source.

We are passionate about periodontal therapy and providing our patients with therapeutic medicine that goes beyond simple cleanings.
