Failing Dental Implants - DERRY, NH

No Scalpels, Sutures or Long Recoveries

The Drill-Free, Scalpel-Free Difference

Fearing or dreading the dentist isn’t uncommon. The sights and sounds of a dental office can be triggering for some. Our team, including Drs. Erik and Karen Young, invest in not only hours of dental continuing education to bring our patients minimally invasive techniques, but we also invest in the latest technology to implement them. In addition to a full spectrum of sedation dentistry services, we also offer laser dentistry in Derry, NH. Whenever possible, we trade in our drills and scalpels for our Ultradent Gemini™ dental laser to provide the same, or often better, results when compared to traditional methods. Using the power of light energy, we offer more gentle and precise care with often faster recoveries.

Our Select Laser Dentistry Services

Gum Disease Treatment
When left untreated, gum disease can lead to pockets of bacteria forming between the teeth and gums, tooth loss, and gum recession. Depending on the stage of gum disease you’re in, Drs. Young will use our dental laser to target harmful, disease-causing bacteria and eradicate infection. Oftentimes, this treatment is more precise and effective than traditional alternatives.
Your frenula are thin pieces of tissue that connect your upper lip to your gums and your tongue to your mouth. Tongue-ties and lip-ties can occur when these tissues are too restrictive. By reducing or removing this tissue, we will ease any struggle to eat, swallow, and speak accurately. Receiving a laser frenectomy often results in no sutures, faster recoveries, and lasting results for your oral function and aesthetics!
Crown Lengthening
Do you have a gummy smile? Do your teeth look “short.” You may just have excessive gum tissue covering them. Laser crown lengthening gently removes this excess tissue and reshapes your gums to a more balanced and aesthetically pleasing tooth-to-gum ratio.
Peri-Implantitis Treatment
We use the dental laser to clean and remove peri-implantitis, infections that have developed around or at the base of a dental implant . Similar to gum disease, this infection can lead to gum recession, bone degradation, and even a failing dental implant. Whether to save your implant or avoid the need for unnecessary surgery, laser peri-implantitis treatment may be your preferred minimally invasive solution.
Soft Tissue Lesions
The pain and hassle of cold sores, canker sores, and ulcers can quickly be removed with our dental laser. In just one visit, we can conveniently treat them without sutures and with minimal swelling so you can return to your normal routine in the same day.
