Lasers Make the REPaiR™ Protocol an Effective Solution for Gum Disease Management

During your initial appointment with Dr. J. Scott Jones, you will notice that our office regularly uses a variety of lasers to achieve tremendous results. One type of laser we particularly appreciate is the WaterLase® iPlus™ from BIOLASE. This tool enables us to offer the REPaiR™ protocol, a several-stage system for patients with periodontitis, or advanced stage gum disease.

The REPaiR™ protocol can be used for many types of treatments, including gingivectomies, frenectomies, scaling and root planing, and osseous surgery. The key to the success of this explicit protocol is that we can precisely manipulate the instruments in a manner that was not possible before the advent of laser gum surgery treatment. The REPaiR™ protocol is not only the leading edge answer for many of our patients in Waco: It is also the gold standard in care for the modern dentistry era.

To find out more about the REPaiR™ protocol and other laser gum surgery options available at office, please contact us today via 254.776.6350

Laser Dentistry in Waco, TX, for Predictable Outcomes

  • Biopsies – When it is necessary to remove soft tissues for evaluation, lasers enable us to take the smallest possible sample size in a way that causes little to no patient discomfort.
  • Bone Regeneration – If you have suffered from bone loss because of progressive gum disease, you may be a candidate for bone regeneration procedures. These surgeries can be made more efficient and effective through the use of laser tools.
  • Connective Tissue Grafts – A gum graft involves the elevation of a flap of soft tissue, which can be achieved with the help of laser tools.
  • Crown Lengthening – This common procedure uses lasers to reduce the amount of gum tissues in spots and recontour the gum line to a more suitable appearance.
  • Bone Removal – Lasers have the power to cut through bone, allowing Dr. Jones to quickly and precisely remove any bone when necessary, as in the case of osseous surgery or bone grafts.
