Periodontal Laser Treatment

With today’s technology, lasers can now be used to treat gum diseases. Whether your gum disease is caused by poor oral hygiene, genes, chronic illness like diabetes or medication, periodontal laser treatment can help cure your gum disease so you can improve your oral health.

Unlike traditional methods used to treat gum conditions, laser treatment is less invasive, thereby minimizing the bleeding, pain, and swelling you may experience. It also does not require local anesthesia or sedative, and it targets the concerned area more precisely and accurately. It also gives better and longer lasting results.

With proper post-treatment dental care and good oral hygiene, periodontal laser treatment is a very effective way to restore your gums and teeth to their natural and healthy condition. This is the reason why we usually recommend this treatment to our patients here at Napa Valley Dental Group.

The Procedure

“The procedure usually requires only one visit to our office here in Napa, CA. And since the treatment is less invasive, you will feel less pain and discomfort after the procedure as compared to other treatment methods.

  • The first thing the dentist needs to do is to measure the depths of gum pockets and to determine how much loss of attachment has occurred. Through this visual checkup, they can formulate a plan for the treatment.
  • Next, using a pulsed laser light, the dentist will remove the plaque and diseased gum tissues. After removing these, they will use an ultrasonic scaler to remove the calculus formed on the surface of your teeth.
  • After removing all the deceased tissues, they will stimulate the clotting of blood in the site. This will form a protective seal around each tooth. Tissues are then recompressed against the surface of each tooth without using stitches.
  • Finally, the dentist will clean your entire mouth and adjust your bite if necessary.

The healing process for this treatment is shorter compared to other treatments for gum disease. You can go back to your daily routine after a day. Like any other treatment, it is important to have good oral hygiene to avoid the reoccurrence of gum disease.

Excellent care and wonderful front of house staff which makes such a difference. 5 stars! We were very happy with the dental work out son received in a caring and warm atmosphere.


I’ve never experienced a friendlier, more organized, more effecient group of professionals in ANY medically focused office of any sort. If your appointment is at 10:00, expect to be called in no later than 10:01..

The price was right the staff was above and beyond. I also had a beautiful doctor Kumar taking care of me do it was s very pleasant experience. She did the tooth extraction flawlessly and I’m a big man with big teeth. I had read reviews before I chose this dentist and the 5 stars in my opinion aren’t enough. They have a repeat customer and after a couple of disappointments it’s nice to be able to say that. Thank you Yuvika and staff.

I have the good fortune of having Dr. Bhullar as my dentist in Napa, Ca. He has taken care of my entire family, even putting my daughter through braces. He has done Root canals and Crowns, fixed broken teeth, you name it. We trust his work and his advice completely, and all his work has been outstanding. Dr. Bhullar takes time to explain all the procedures. He explains all the pros and cons of the treatment so that I can make an independent judgment.His staff is also extremely helpful! From the moment, you walk in the door, you sense this is no ordinary dental office (Thank You Laura) for your patience and help in explaining everything. You guys are the BEST!

Honestly I’ve always been extremely skeptical of dental appointments and have had a few bad experiences, but I could not be more relieved when leaving my appointment today. I definitely felt “”taken care of”” by the quality of care I received as well as their extension of help in multiple aspects of what I needed.Very pleased and again, relieved
