An acute periodontal abscess typically occurs in patients with untreated chronic periodontitis (gum disease) and in association with moderate-to-deep periodontal pockets. Periodontal abscesses often arise as an acute exacerbation of a preexisting pocket. This case was effectively managed with Laser Therapy. Lasers come in various wavelengths. Dr. Donato Napoletano is trained and certified in utilizing 3 laser wavelengths: Diode, Erbium (Er:YAG) & Neodymium (Nd:YAG). A PerioLase Nd:YAG laser was used in treating this patient’s acute and chronic periodontal condition with a procedure known as LANAP (Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure).
