Periodontal Treatment with Laser Therapy
Because of its variety of usages and minimally evasive nature, Laser Therapy has recently gained popularity with trained cosmetic dentists. Using lasers, we can treat diseased gums, cold sores and perform diagnostic tests all without having to make an incision.
Because of the laser’s precision capability, diseased tissues can be removed while leaving the healthy tissue untouched. The laser can also sterilize damaged gum pockets to isolate disease and accelerate healing.
Our patients are often thrilled to find that cold sores do not reappear in the treated spot after Laser Therapy. The procedure provides immediate pain relief and can clear the cold sore up much faster than normal.
Laser Therapy is also helpful for cosmetic purposes. Many patients feel that their smiles are too “gummy” and are delighted to learn that there is a safe fix. Gums can be contoured and evened so that they are lined up straight and not overcrowding the teeth. This procedure can be done quickly and precisely using laser therapy.
