Patient testimonial on Dr. Tom Niemi

"I recently came to New Era Dental for the first time. I had called a lot of dental offices and then when calling New Era Dental the girl who answered the phone was very pleasant sounding and made me feel taken care of. She was very quick to my needs and got me in that same day for an appointment. I was in a little pain mind you.

" I met the girls at the front and they were very welcoming and polite. Dr. Niemi was a very nice man he did not judge the amount of time I hadn’t been to the dentist.

"He was happy and passionate in helping me that same day to get me out of pain, and that’s what he did. The next day one of the girls called me to make sure I was doing ok after the appointment the previous day. It was so refreshing to go somewhere and have someone take the time to help me without rushing things and doing the job half done. I feel great about New Era Dental and will go nowhere else from now on for my dental care.

"Thank You, Dr. Niemi and staff!"

Dr. Niemi educates patients on best oral care practices to prevent re-occurrence of gum disease.

Soft-tissue laser for faster and more effective treatment

About Gum Disease

High-Tech Treatment for Gum Disease

For mild to moderate gum disease Dr. Tom Niemi uses deep cleaning followed by state-of-the-art soft-tissue laser to remove infected tissue. In some cases, Dr. Niemi follows up with Arestin® therapy, a slow release antibiotic that destroys hidden pockets of infection.

Not only is the laser an effective tool for eradicating the bacteria, it also provides a very gentle treatment and can eliminate the need for anesthesia. In many cases, due to the laser’s effectiveness, antibiotic treatment isn’t needed. Dr. Niemi can also treat some more advanced cases of gum disease.

Post-graduate training in periodontics

Dr. Niemi has extensive post-graduate training in periodontal disease and has successfully treated many patients, whether they had mild or advanced cases of gum disease.

About gum disease

Laser Gum Disease Treatment in Arvada CO - Tom Niemi, DDS

When severe, gum disease is known as periodontal disease, or gingivitis when mild to moderate. Left untreated, it not only can affect the health of your teeth, it can also impact your overall well-being.

Gum disease is the result of bacteria accumulating on the gum. In mild gum disease, the gum is irritated and can bleed when brushing or flossing. If left untreated, the inflammation works its way down to the root of the tooth, causing periodontal pockets. Here the bacteria further multiply and can cause damage to the supporting bone structure, so that the teeth will eventually come loose.

Risks of Gum Disease

As well as the possibility of losing teeth, gum disease has been found to increase your risk of cardiovascular disease, affect pregnancy and impact those with diabetes. That is why it is important to have regular checkups and cleanings to avoid further complications.

If handled aggressively, especially in its early stages, gum disease can be easily treated. Adequate treatment and good gum care with home hygiene will ensure further complications are prevented.

Fighting gum disease with hi-tech equipment

Laser Gum Disease Treatment in Arvada CO - Tom Niemi, DDS

Our ultrasonic laser provides more effective and comfortable treatment.

Laser Gum Disease Treatment in Arvada CO - Tom Niemi, DDS

The Odyssey soft-tissue laser provides more efficient and gentler deep cleaning.

The standard care for mild to moderate gum disease is deep cleaning. Deep cleaning consists of scaling the teeth to remove dental tartar from their surfaces. Root planing is the process of smoothing the root surfaces and removing any infected tissue.

Dr. Neimi performs deep cleaning with a Cavitron, an ultrasonic scaler that uses sound waves to remove tartar and plaque from your teeth. Traditional scaling is done by hand, with the ultrasonic scaler there is:

  • more efficient removal of plaque, calculus and stains

  • less trauma

  • more comfort

  • quicker treatment time

Using the Odyssey, a high frequency soft-tissue laser, Dr. Niemi disinfects the gum pockets where the bacteria accumulate. The laser produces wavelengths that painlessly remove diseased tissue with little or no anesthesia required. Recovery time is quick with minimal discomfort.
