Periodontal (gum) disease begins with bacterial growth in dental plaque that can lead to damage to tissue and loss of teeth, if not treated. With the incorporation of the PerioProtect Method™, the dentists at Insight Integrative Dentistry are able to provide targeted, non-invasive therapy to treat and eliminate the bacteria that causes gum disease.

As more and more evidence emerges regarding the link between periodontal health and overall systemic health (including diabetes, respiratory distress, and Alzheimer’s), Insight Integrative Dentistry is constantly incorporating ways to help you be at your healthiest. Our periodontal therapy programs provide tailored treatment regimens to help you improve your oral health and overall wellbeing.
No-Shot (No-Drill) Dentistry
With laser technology, we can now drill cavities and repair decay without the use of numbing shots and drills. The process is quick and simple: We remove the decayed portion of the tooth with the laser, apply a cooling spray of water, and place the filling. Lasers allow us to retain more of the healthy tooth structure and create a better bonding surface, which ensures a long-lasting filling. The FDA-approved procedure is safe for children.
As we grow older, often our teeth become discolored. Food and drink, such as coffee, tea, and red wine, can also stain the teeth. The process of laser whitening allows you to achieve a whiter smile without losing material from the surface of your teeth.
Insight Integrative Dentistry will evaluate your teeth to determine if you are a candidate for laser whitening. Then, we will position a rubber shield in your mouth to protect your gums. We place a dental tray with whitening product into your mouth. The laser helps break the material down, which allows oxygen to absorb into the enamel of your teeth, making them whiter.
There are none of the old bleaching trays or at-home whitening. Patients leave with no post-procedure sensitivity, and excellent results are achieved in just an hour or two.
