What is laser gum therapy and what are the benefits?

Laser gum therapy is a minimally invasive treatment for periodontal disease that uses focused light beams to remove infected gum tissue and bacteria. The laser precisely targets diseased areas, promoting faster healing and reducing the risk of infection. Benefits of laser gum therapy include less bleeding and swelling, reduced discomfort, and a quicker recovery time compared to traditional surgical methods. Additionally, lasers can stimulate the regeneration of healthy gum tissue and bone, improving overall oral health and preventing further progression of gum disease.

Does laser gum therapy hurt?

Laser gum therapy is generally less painful than traditional gum surgery. The precision of the laser minimizes damage to surrounding tissues, leading to reduced discomfort during and after the procedure. Most patients report feeling only mild sensations or slight discomfort. Dentists typically use local anesthesia to ensure the procedure is pain-free. Post-treatment, patients may experience minor soreness or sensitivity, but this is usually manageable with over-the-counter pain relievers and resolves quickly.

Am I a candidate for laser gum therapy?

You may be a candidate for laser gum therapy if you have moderate to severe periodontal disease, especially if you have not responded well to non-surgical treatments like scaling and root planing in the past. Ideal candidates typically have infected or inflamed gums, pockets of bacteria, or gum recession. A thorough examination by our team prior to treatment will be necessary to determine if laser therapy is appropriate for your condition. Factors such as overall health, the severity of the gum disease, and your specific dental wants and needs will be considered during your consultation.
