If you have been diagnosed with periodontal disease, Dr. Ariana may include laser gum disease therapy as part of your treatment plan. Laser therapy can be very effective for treating an active infection in the mouth in a single visit. We will get great results with minimal cutting and sewing. Let us help you maintain optimal oral health with laser gum surgery.
Many people overlook the effects of gum disease on their health. It is important to note that an infection in the mouth has the potential to spread to other parts of the body so early detection is the key to preventing a number of general health problems.
Gum disease has been linked to several health issues, such as diabetes, an increased risk of a stroke, heart disease, and premature delivery. Common symptoms of gum disease include: inflammation of the gums, sensitive teeth, receding gums, and bad breath.
Laser Gum Surgery is a very targeted and precise procedure that can treat moderate to severe cases of gum disease. We can treat infected gums with a simple procedure without damaging healthy tissue and can even promote tissue regeneration. Laser dentistry allows us to provide a high standard of care to our patients and provide treatment with high degree of accuracy.
Dr. Ariana will pass a laser over the infected tissues to kill bacteria in the gums and stimulate healing. The laser may be passed a couple of times to ensure all of the infection has been treated and the laser can also prompt the natural healing process. Since this is a minimally-invasive procedure, it is relatively painless and there is no excessive bleeding or swelling involved. Thanks to the efficiency of the laser periodontal treatment, you can take less time out of work, because it requires minimal stitches, cutting, or sewing. This is because it heals faster and more comfortably than traditional periodontal treatments.
