Gum Disease Laser Therapy
Here at Comfort Dental, we’re proud to offer periodontal laser treatment, the latest technology available for periodontal therapy. There are numerous advantages to using laser therapy, as opposed to relying on the more traditional methods, which require a scalpel and sutures.
The Benefits of Laser Therapy Include:
With laser treatment, there is reduced bleeding or no bleeding at all, minimized swelling, no charring, and no drill noise or vibration. The stress and anxiety often associated with dental work is therefore eliminated when you experience quick, effective, and essentially painless 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 on the area it is working, thereby reducing the risk of bacterial infections and relapses.
Anesthesia Limited or Eliminated
Because laser dentistry is virtually painless, no longer will you suffer with fear of injections and numbness. Often, only a light anesthetic spray is required. Laser treatment eliminates the complications and cost associated with anesthesia.
Laser Therapy Uses:
A variety of dental procedures can be performed using laser technology, such as a frenectomy, osseous surgery, and gum grafting. We’re also able to use laser technology as a way to regenerate healthy gums and remove diseases areas in a virtually painless way. This method also encourages healthy gum to regenerate and attach to the teeth. There is a much lower chance of gum disease returning when laser therapy is used as opposed to traditional surgery.
