Laser dental treatments available at Quincy, MA area practice
Laser light used to seem like something from the future, but with continued advances in medicine, studies are showing laser light to be incredibly versatile. Additionally, it is not integrated into many dental procedures in Quincy, MA. Dr. Stephen Matarazzo and his team are dedicated to reinvesting into the practice to ensure patients have access to top-quality treatment options. Patients looking for a dentist “near me” that offers laser dental treatments can take the time to speak to Dr. Stephen Matarazzo about their options. One common treatment is that of periodontal disease.
Understanding how periodontal disease impacts the smile
Dr. Stephen Matarazzo and his team in Quincy, MA, find that patients who have been diagnosed with periodontal disease may be unfamiliar with the treatment options available to them for addressing this infection. Periodontal disease is an infection that begins in the soft tissues of the mouth, or the gums, which is how it also received its name of gum disease. The infection can spread and cause the loss of bone and teeth over time. With early diagnosis and intervention, most patients can bring their smile back to health with dental services.
How is periodontal disease treated?
Laser devices used by Dr. Stephen Matarazzo can target the bacteria in the mouth and kill the infection right at the source. These laser treatments are often used in conjunction with antibiotics and other methods of controlling the soft tissue infection to restore the smile’s health and wellness. The laser treatments are highly encouraged for patients who might otherwise have to go for more invasive procedures such as scaling and root planing.
What are some other laser services available?

- Treating cavities
- Providing fillings
