Laser Gum Treatment
The laser gum treatment is used once gum disease has become so far advanced that brushing or flossing would not be enough to get the gums back to optimum health. If you are opting for laser gum therapy your dentist will be able to regenerate healthy tissue by removing unhealthy and diseased gum tissue.
Advantages of Using Laser Gum Treatment:
Precision: The thinness of the beam allows your periodontist to remove unhealthy tissue while avoiding damaging healthy tissue during this removal process.
Sterilization: The light and the warmth generated from the lasers helps to seal blood vessels and nerve endings in the tissues which means less bleeding and pain.
Heals fast: Also, your gums heal faster because the light is sterile and blood vessels are sealed.
Minimally Invasive: The procedure does not require stitches because it’s minimally invasive.
