Laser Gum Therapy
A breakthrough in dentistry, laser gum therapy opens the doors to better results in less time with minimal discomfort. Before, treating periodontal (gum) disease was an invasive, uncomfortable, and time-consuming procedure. Now, we can use lasers to get rid of any damaged tissue, preserve healthy gums, and eliminate the need for scalpels and sutures.
Dr. Fauver was the first dentist in Vermont to be fully trained and licensed to perform Laser Periodontal Therapy (LPT). He is excited to offer his patients a better way towards a healthier smile with laser dentistry!Contact Us

The PerioLase laser is a revolutionary advancement in dental technology. It is a fast, precise, and gentle method for treating gum disease. It’s also shown to produce longer-lasting results. We use it to target and remove any infected tissue, while leaving healthy tissue intact.
The PerioLase laser works in such a way where it promotes healing as we work, so you can count on a shorter recovery period. It even minimizes the risk of swelling and bleeding. That means you don’t have to worry about some of the concerns people have with surgery, like sutures, and you’ll be back to your daily activities with little downtime. This laser technology also promotes healthy bone regeneration. With this tool, we can save patients valuable time while significantly reducing discomfort.Make Appointment
