Non-Surgical Periodontics Dentist in Novato, CA

Did you know that laser dentistry can help you beautify your smile, fight gum disease, and support overall health?

Our Novato dentists understand that your oral health affects your overall wellbeing.

That’s why we’re committed to improving smiles and lives with non-surgical periodontal treatment!

Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is a bacterial infection affecting the gum and bone tissue around the teeth. Periodontal disease can cause teeth to loosen—eventually causing tooth and bone loss. In fact, gum disease is the number one cause of tooth loss in adults.

Left untreated, periodontal disease can contribute to a variety of diseases including:

  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • Respiratory disease
  • Strokes
  • Pre-term low birth-weight babies
  • Poor digestion
  • Chronic inflammation

Innovative, Non-Surgical Solutions

Have you been avoiding periodontal treatment because you can’t stomach the thought of dental surgery? At Marin Modern Dentistry we provide an innovative alternative to traditional, invasive surgery. Using state-of-the-art periodontal lasers our team can eliminate harmful bacteria, while promoting and strengthening gum tissue regeneration. Laser therapy is gentle, comfortable, and requires very little recovery time. With laser therapy we are able to save more natural teeth than ever before—even if you’ve been told that you’ll lose your teeth to gum disease, there’s still hope for you.

You Have a Partner in Periodontal Treatment

Our periodontal team will not only restore your gum health—we’ll help you maintain healthy teeth and gums with a personalized treatment plan. We tailor periodontal care to meet our patient’s specific needs and dental goals. We want you to feel confident about your periodontal care—we’ll explain your treatment plan in detail and answer any questions you may have. You’ll be supported during and after treatment—it’s our goal to teach you how to prevent further infections, gum recession, and bone loss.

Your Oral Health Affects Overall Wellness

Emerging research shows that there is a link between gum health and a patient’s overall wellbeing. Gum disease not only destroys your gums, teeth, and bone—it can actually wreak havoc on your body as a whole. Dr. McConnell and Dr. Dehnert are on the forefront of understanding this relationship—called the oral systemic connection. Their goal is to help patients conquer gum disease and maintain oral health in order to lower their risk of heart disease, chronic respiratory disease, and stroke. Using the latest technology they are able to detect and treat gum disease in its earliest stages, as well as treat existing cases non-surgically.
