Laser Treatment Heals & Protects Your Gums
The first recommendation for treatment for the early stages of periodontal or gum disease is usually a deep cleaning of all your teeth. If your early stage gum infection treatment does not work entirely, or if the disease is moderate or severe, which means many more germs are present than in the early stages, we may recommend gum surgery.
Traditional gum surgery involves the use of a scalpel to cut the gums and treat the disease. Not only is it uncomfortable, but there is also the risk of gum recession, which means more of the roots are exposed. There may be more teeth sensitivity as well as a higher risk of cavities on the exposed roots.
Laser gum therapy is a new alternative to traditional gum surgery. Laser gum therapies are less invasive and less painful, and they offer faster recovery.
Diode laser therapy has been shown by research to kill the bacteria and viruses that cause gum disease and to reduce the number of bacteria and viruses that can enter the bloodstream and possibly affect your heart. It is an excellent way to treat early gum disease and to do routine periodontal or gum disease maintenance.
LANAP laser gum surgery may be indicated if your gum disease is more severe. This is the most advanced laser gum surgery available. We work closely with a specialist who is specifically trained to do this type of laser surgery.
