Proven Results, Gentle Care
Dr. Gordon Wilson, founder of the Arizona Periodontal Laser Surgical Institute, has developed a unique gum disease treatment system called Therapeutic Laser Care (TLC©). TLC© is a combination of many different types of periodontal procedures, depending on the severity of the periodontal condition. In the vast majority of cases, TLC© is non-surgical. Occasionally, (in the most severe cases) TLC© incorporates laser therapies such as Laser Softcare® and LANAP®. TLC© implements the use of Perio Trays© to help eliminate gum disease-causing bacteria without the need for cutting the gums, or other traditionally invasive techniques. Dr. Wilson has performed thousands of TLC© cases and guarantees at least a 75 percent reduction in periodontal pocketing within six months, or you may return for complimentary retreatment.
No Scalpels, No Stitches!
Traditional gum treatments, like osseous surgery, often require cutting the gums to access areas of infection, making them painful and invasive. Seeing a need for a quick, efficient and less invasive alternative, Dr. Wilson pioneered TLC 4 Gums©. TLC© combines several minimally-invasive, virtually pain-free treatments to offer one comprehensive treatment alternative that addresses your gum tissue needs.
With TLC©, there are no scalpels and no stitches. In fact, the vast majority of TLC© cases are non-surgical! In a select few cases, laser therapies such as Laser Softcare® or LANAP® may be used to vaporize diseased gum tissue and promote faster healing. Then, Perio Trays© , antimicrobial medicated trays, are used to eliminate gum disease-causing bacteria. Perio Trays© are custom-designed based on impressions of your teeth and gums and can be used in the comfort of your own home. Most patients report a greater level of comfort with TLC© than traditional gum surgery or other periodontal laser procedures.
Restore Your Gums to a Healthy State
TLC© works by focusing on destroying the bacteria that collect between the teeth and gums. With this treatment program, Dr. Wilson will not only help you restore you gums to a healthy state, but continue to maintain that state as well. Compared to traditional surgical treatments, TLC© is:
- Non-Invasive to Minimally-Invasive
Dr. Wilson Pioneered TLC© Treatment
Dr. Wilson was one of the first dentists in the world to be licensed by Millennium Dental Technologies in the LANAP® technique. TLC© combines several non-invasive, minimally-invasive and virtually pain-free treatments to offer one of the most effective gum treatments possible. Dr. Wilson’s TLC© protocol customizes a plan for each of the five stages of periodontal health. As the founder of the Arizona Periodontal Laser Institute, Dr. Wilson lectures dentists nationwide on this revolutionary gum disease treatment method.
