Traditional dental drills and tools produce heat and vibration, which can cause you to experience pain. Dr. Jay Ajmo utilizes the power of laser dentistry at his Palm Beach Gardens office to make the dental experience more pleasant and less stressful for his patients. Using the state-of-the-art Biolase® ezlase™ diode laser, we can perform soft-tissue surgeries, temporarily relieve muscle and joint pain, and even whiten your teeth.
Oftentimes, a procedure can be done with the ezlase® with nothing more than a topical anesthetic. You will experience significantly less bleeding, require less medication, and heal faster with less uncomfortable, post-surgical pain.

- Gum reshaping: The appearance of a “gummy” smile can keep you from smiling with confidence. Laser gum contouring surgery can remove excess gum tissue to make your smile more attractive. Biolase® technology allows us to masterfully sculpt your gums to enhance the appearance of your pearly whites.
- Laser periodontal therapy: The ezlase™ can be used to remove periodontal disease-causing bacteria and debris from between your gums and teeth. If left untreated, this material can cause gum recession and even tooth loss.
- Laser gum surgery: If you suffer from painful cold sores or fever blisters, the ezlase™ provides immediate relief. This technology can also be used to remove growths and excess tissue that can cause other oral health problems.
- Frenectomy: Connections between your tongue and gums can cause restrictions in your speech. Releasing these connections with the ezlase™ can make it easier to speak normally.
The Importance of Healthy Gums
The buildup of plaque and bacteria in your mouth accrues on a daily basis. When left on your teeth, plaque can harden and increase your risk for periodontal disease. Hardened plaque can form tartar, which cannot be removed with an over-the-counter toothbrush. The longer you wait to have a professional clean these harmful materials off your teeth, the worse your condition will become. Gingivitis and periodontal disease cause your gums to bleed, swell, and even separate from your teeth, creating pockets that can become infected. You may begin to lose soft-tissue and bone mass at this point, which often leads to tooth loss. The value of healthy gums is as high as the rest of your body, so it is important to have regular dental visits and stick to a consistent at-home hygiene routine.
In many of our cosmetic dentistry cases, our patients must first undergo non-surgical laser periodontal therapy. At PGA Dentistry, we are determined to provide the most comprehensive care. By treating gum disease first, we are ensuring that your results will be all inclusive.
