If you are diagnosed with periodontal disease, our dentist may recommend laser gum treatment to help fight the disease and improve your oral health. Gum disease is a degenerative condition caused by harmful bacteria in plaque. It begins with infection and inflammation of the gums and supporting tissues, and if left untreated can result in tooth loss, bone loss and gum recession. Our dentist will determine if laser gum treatment is a good option for you following your initial consultation and diagnosis.
When you receive laser gum treatment, our dentist will use an advanced dental laser to kill the bacteria in your mouth, remove infected tissue and encourage the healing and growth of healthy gum tissue. We will monitor your mouth through the treatment itself as well as in follow-up appointments to ensure that you are achieving optimal results.
There are many advantages to receiving a gum treatment performed with a dental laser. Laser periodontal treatments are generally much more comfortable – you may not even need an anesthetic during treatment. Laser treatments are also very efficient and effective, quickly removing harmful bacteria, minimizing bleeding from the procedure and decreasing your risk of infection following treatment.
