"I've been a patient of Dr. Patel's for nearly 14 years. He's treated me for a myriad of issues. In each case I have been completely satisfied with the outcome. His expertise is second to none.

We may use WaterLase™ iPlus laser to treat your teeth, gums, bone or other soft tissues in your mouth to:
Improve your smile by contouring or shaping your gums with periodontal plastic surgery to improve the appearance of your smile – safely removing excess gum tissue that may give you a “gummy” smile, or make your front teeth appear irregular in size or shape.
Remove oral growths and excess tissue quickly and safely in your mouth including gum tissue over an unerupted tooth, small “tags” called papilla, and growths called fibromas.
Fix a “tongue tie” and/or prevent gum recession by releasing connections that restrict the movement of your tongue, cheek or lips and cause your gums to recede without a scalpel or stitches and less post-operative pain.
Treat periodontal disease by removing debris and bacteria between your teeth and gums that can cause bleeding gums, gum recession and even loss of teeth. For moderate to severe gum disease, ask your doctor about REPAIR minimally invasive periodontal treatment.
Treat endodontic (root canal) infections and can perform disinfection and cleaning, open dentinal tubules, decontaminate prior to obturation, pulpotomy, pulp extirpation, smear layer removal in the canal as well as surgical endodontics procedures such as apicoectomy. Using patented radial firing tips to deliver laser energy in a 360-degree cone within the canal, Waterlase can have a dramatic, positive impact on clinical outcomes for endodontics.
Treat Peri-implantitis and Infected implants with REPAIR minimally invasive protocol to remove diseased tissues, debris and bacteria between your implants and gums that can cause bleeding gums, gum recession and even loss of dental implants.
We may also use our WaterLase iPlus laser to perform other procedures that could benefit you.
