Eliminate Gum Disease and Save Your Teeth with Laser Gum Treatment

Gum disease is a very common problem, but it can be excruciating and challenging to experience.

Gum disease starts as a simple infection in the gums, but it can quickly become a more severe problem if no treatment is done. Traditional methods of managing gum diseases, such as scaling and root planing can be highly uncomfortable and often don’t deliver the desired results.

Prospect Road Dental Surgery offers laser gum treatments as a modern and effective management for gum disease and other oral health problems. Lasers are used instead of scalpels to lessen discomfort and swelling, and recovery time is significantly reduced. As a result of laser treatment, soft tissue is preserved, regeneration occurs, and new bone is formed as a result. Our experienced team of dentists use laser dentistry to eliminate bacteria, stimulate bone growth, and reshape gum tissue. This safe and non-invasive procedure can improve your oral health and your smile.

Laser gum therapy is most beneficial for people who have moderate to severe gum disease. It is for patients searching for a faster recovery time and less pain management. In addition, those who are apprehensive about traditional scalpel surgery can benefit greatly from this method of operation.

To achieve their aesthetic goals, patients with a gummy smile can have laser gum therapy as part of the cosmetic treatment. It can be used to improve the gum line by removing extra gum tissue and creating an even gum line by reshaping or contouring the gums.

This method allows the dentist to have precise control and target the laser treatment accurately. No discomfort is felt during the laser gum treatment. A local anesthetic is typically used to ensure patient comfort during the process. Discomfort following a procedure is usually minimal and only lasts a few days.

Here are some things to expect with laser gum surgery:

  1. During this minor surgery, the fibre optic tip of the laser will be placed at the top of the periodontal pocket.
  2. Gum tissue that is infected and inflamed will be removed from the pocket using a laser. The laser removes only decayed tissue, which is specifically developed for this purpose. No healthy gum tissue is harmed or removed in this procedure. In addition, the periodontal pocket is cleaned of disease-causing bacteria using the laser.
  3. The tartar and calcifications are then broken apart and removed by our dentist using an ultrasonic cleaning tool.
  4. The laser is again used to deep clean the bottom of the pocket and remove any remaining debris.
  5. Additionally, the laser sterilizes tissues and bone and encourages the development of a blood clot, making the procedure more effective. To promote healing, the blood clot aids the reattachment of gum tissue to the natural tooth structure. As a result, there will be no stitches required.

The treatment of periodontal diseases may require multiple office visits, depending on the severity of the disease. Most of the time, it can be effectively managed in just two sessions of two hours each day (although you may need ongoing treatment to further protect the teeth throughout the years). In contrast, conventional gum therapy typically requires numerous one-hour sessions.

The treatment plan we provide would include an estimated length of time for your dental treatment. Typically, a full mouth reconstruction may require two appointments of one to two hours each. A single quadrant can be completed in around an hour and a half to two hours.

This minor surgery is safe and effective as long as you correctly pair them with other dental devices. Dentists can safely utilize dental lasers to help patients if they take the proper measures, such as wearing safety glasses. Laser gum treatment is also more effective and less painful than traditional treatment options making it a more comfortable experience.

There’s a common misconception that laser therapy is more expensive than traditional procedures. But this isn’t true, as it can often be less costly and provide better results for patients with periodontal disease. 

The cost of treatment varies but is generally equivalent to standard cut-and-sew procedures. Laser gum treatment typically costs $500 to $550 for each quadrant, while $2,000 to $2,2000 is the typical price tag for a full-mouth reconstruction.

Laser gum treatment is typically performed by periodontists, general dentists, and cosmetic dentists.
