What To Expect With Laser Gum Surgery
Laser Gum Surgery is ideal for patients who do not want to deal with the pain, discomfort and long down time associated with traditional periodontal surgery. We do not need to cut away any gum tissue because we simply pass the laser over the infected area. The precision laser is powerful enough to kill up to 99% of the bacteria in the tissue without harming surrounding tissue. This eliminates the need for a long series of treatments, antibiotic therapy, and other treatments that may be needed to get gum disease under control.
We will numb the tissue so you will feel minimum discomfort or pain during treatment. We offer sedation dentistry options for patients that need it. The teeth will be free of infection after just one treatment and very clean — any periodontal pocketing from gum disease will start to resolve within a matter of weeks. We have seen many cases where the pocket depth drops by half after Laser Gum Surgery.
