If you need gum disease treatment, you’re most likely looking for the most comfortable and safest procedure. Thanks to today’s advancements in medical technology, laser gum disease treatment is a great option. This modern protocol is the minimally invasive alternative to traditional osseous surgery. Advanced laser gum therapy is performed by Dr. Lauren Anderson, our board-certified periodontist who has advanced training and experience using the BIOLASE® WaterLase Express™ and Epic X™ dental lasers.
You can expect these three benefits, and more, receiving laser gum therapy:
- More comfortable treatment and healing
Using the laser gum disease protocol, Dr. Anderson can provide predictable treatment and a high level of accuracy with the dental lasers. This pin-point precision and elimination of scalpels or sutures help patients experience a more comfortable procedure and recovery.
- Helps preserve soft tissue and bone
Dental lasers are not cutting tools. They use light energy to gently vaporize diseased tissue and bacteria from around the teeth in the periodontal pockets. This helps keep healthy gum tissue and bone intact. The preservation of more hard and soft tissues also helps accelerate healing.
- Promotes faster, healthier healing
As part of the laser gum therapy protocol, Dr. Anderson also uses the dental laser to stimulate the formation of a blood clot. This clot helps the gums reattach to the tooth roots to prevent bacteria from entering the site. With minimal inflammation and bleeding, patients recover quickly and can generally return to normal activities within a few days of the procedure.
