Complete, Advanced Oral Surgery Care Affords Exceptional Benefits
With dental lasers, we can treat destructive gum disease in a minimally invasive, more comfortable way. Gum disease is a common but serious condition, and one of the leading causes of adult tooth loss today. It results from toxins produced by bacteria in the mouth that affect the gums and teeth, which can lead to bone loss, gum recession and other concerning conditions. Treating gum disease as early as possible is critical for minimizing damage to your oral health and smile. We treat many cases of moderate, advanced and chronic gum disease with our gentle and effective REPaiR™ laser protocol for periodontitis. This laser technology offers many benefits, and improves your comfort and experience when receiving gum disease treatment.
Laser Treatment vs. Traditional Gum Disease Treatment Options
Laser gum treatment and traditional gum surgery differ in several ways. Laser treatment reaches deep into periodontal pockets below the gum line to access areas of infection without the need for cutting or sutures. It effectively eradicates diseased tissue and bacterial colonies, and allows for easier removal of tartar deposits. Laser gum treatment encourages natural healing of treatment areas, generally leading to a quicker recovery time. Traditional gum surgery, while still effective, utilizes incisions to retract gum tissue, giving access to areas of infection. Sutures must then be placed, leading to a longer healing and recovery period. By using laser techniques, we can minimize trauma and treat your condition faster and more efficiently.
The benefits of laser gum treatment include:
- Minimally invasive care
- No drills, incisions or sutures
- Greater comfort
- Reduced bleeding
- Softens tartar for easy removal
- Faster healing and recovery
- Fewer dental appointment visits
