Laser Gum Surgery Yields Superior Results
Gum disease is one of the top contributing factors to adult tooth loss. Traditional gum disease treatments usually require you to undergo a series of cleanings and maintenance procedures, but often more invasive gum surgery is necessary. This means scalpels and other low-tech implements. One of the key advantages of incorporating laser therapy into our practice is the incredible precision it allows our periodontists. Since the CO2 laser has a very minimal absorption depth, it doesn’t damage or compromise the underlying or surrounding tissue structures. As a result, our doctors are able to preserve more healthy tissue during laser gum surgery, which is always our top priority.
What’s more, laser therapy reduces the need for anesthetic. You’ll find that treatment with a laser results in less discomfort, swelling, and bleeding. Often, this translates to shorter healing times. The laser can be used to remove severely infected gum tissue, as well as during gum treatment to reduce bacteria, effectively and efficiently treating infections without the need for antibiotics, which can have systemic side effects.
