Laser gum treatment is a type of treatment for periodontal disease that is completed using a dental laser. Our dentist may recommend laser gum treatment if your smile is affected by periodontal disease. Also known as gum disease, periodontal disease is a degenerative condition caused by bacteria in plaque. As the plaque builds up on the teeth, the bacteria may cause inflammation and infection in the gums and supporting tissues. When left untreated, gum disease can lead to tooth loss, bone loss, and receding gums. Laser gum treatment is used to kill bacteria, remove infected tissue, and encourage the growth of healthy gum tissue. Through treatment, we strive to halt the progress of the disease and encourage the growth of healthy tissue.
Periodontal treatment completed using dental lasers is typically more comfortable than traditional methods. In fact, you may not even require an anesthetic for your laser gum treatment. Laser gum treatment is efficient and comfortable. Laser dentistry often eliminates the need for stitches. It also decreases your risk of infection following treatment and minimizes bleeding.
