What are some of the advantages of dental LASER therapy?

If you notice you have inflammation or pain in your mouth or gums it may be time to consult with a Periodontist who can provide you with the options and benefits of a process called LASER therapy.  Gum disease is one of the most common diseases today. If gum disease is left untreated, it can lead to receding gums and even tooth loss.

LASER therapy provides patients with a minimally invasive treatment to remove bacteria and tissue, while leaving the healthy gum intact. This process has shown a higher success rate compared to others, to regenerate bone growth and gum reattachment. In some cases, LASER therapy can reverse gum disease.

When you have to go through any surgery the recovery time can be rough and take a while.  The pain may also be intolerable with conventional surgery.  With dental LASER therapy you can get the results you need to regenerate gum tissue and bone growth. LASER therapy is a relatively quick procedure, and has less pain and recovery time.

Our LASER therapy minimizes any bleeding because the laser helps to clot exposed blood vessels. Because of this, the area heals faster and becomes stronger. Your worry about infection is less with LASER therapy because the laser beam sterilizes the area as it works. Good oral hygiene is important to keeping your mouth looking and feeling healthy after LASER therapy. Our team will provide you with instructions after your therapy to care for your mouth and gums at home.

A few advantages of dental LASER therapy are:

  • Minimally invasive laser therapy.
  • Laser is precise so surrounding areas are not affected.
  • Mild pain or discomfort.
  • Promotes periodontal regeneration.
  • Recovery is faster.
  • Less gum loss and swelling.
  • Less chance of infection.
