Gum Disease Laser Therapy
Benefits of Laser Dentistry:
With laser treatment, there is reduced bleeding and swelling, and much less noise! The stress sometimes associated with dental work is therefore reduced when you experience quick, effective, and comfortable laser procedures. Also, postoperative sensitivity is greatly limited by laser dentistry, and recovery time is much quicker than with traditional methods. In fact, due to the less-invasive nature of the laser technique, the mouth begins to heal immediately after work is completed.
Reduced Risk of Infection:
The laser’s high-energy light beam acts as a sterilizer in a very localized area, thereby reducing the risk of bacterial infections and relapses.
Uses of Dental Lasers:
Dr. Frideres, Dr. Everson, and our team of hygienists can perform a variety of procedures using laser technology, such as a frenectomy, osseous surgery, and gum grafting. Drs. Frideres, Everson and Kawasaki are also able to use laser technology as a way to regenerate healthy gum tissue and remove diseases present in the mouth. There is a much lower chance of gum disease returning when laser therapy is used as opposed to traditional surgery.
