What Is Laser Periodontal Treatment?

If you suffer from pain or inflammation in the mouth or gums, our laser periodontal treatment can help. Laser treatment is an effective way to help battle gum disease. If left untreated gum disease can progress and lead to receding gums, or even tooth loss.

Our laser periodontal treatment is quick with minimal recovery, and removes bacteria and tissue while leaving your gums intact. Laser treatment promotes gum reattachment, and helps to regenerate bone growth.

How Does Laser Periodontal Treatment Work?

Our laser periodontal treatment is quick and minimally invasive. During your appointment we use a laser to access the infected areas. The laser gently removes the infected tissue and bacteria without compromising the gums. We then perform root scaling to remove any calculus or plaque that has built up around the gumline or root of the teeth. This process helps to smooth the areas where bacteria can collect and prevent future issues. Our laser minimizes bleeding, and helps to clot any blood vessels. This results in stronger gums and makes the healing time faster.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Laser Periodontal Treatment?

Patients are a good candidate if they have swollen, tender, or bleeding gums. Other symptoms that would warrant this treatment include persistent bad breath, pus surrounding the teeth or gums, or gums that are receding.

We provide a detailed consultation process for each of our patients to develop a customized treatment plan that works for you. If you think you may have an issue with your gums, we encourage you to schedule an appointment.
