If you face periodontal (gum) surgery or treatment, you may wonder about all of the hype surrounding laser gum treatment. At Smile Life Dental, we implemented this state-of-the-art procedure for the comfort and health benefits of our patients.
Periodontal disease requiring surgery involves removing all diseased tissue so that healthy tissue can grow back without risk of infection. Traditional surgery required incisions that often caused lengthy healing times. Additionally, traditional gum surgery lacked complete precision due to the nature of traditional surgery.
With laser gum treatments, we can precisely remove diseased tissue and promote healthy tissue regeneration using a soft tissue laser. Lasers provide our patients with faster healing times, increased comfort, decreased bleeding, and a better overall experience.
Laser gum treatments are not limited to periodontal disease treatment. We can use soft tissue dental lasers to treat cold sores, canker sores, perform cosmetic gum reshaping (gingival sculpting), and gum surgeries such as tongue ties and frenectomies.
At Smile Life Dental, we strive to continually provide the latest technology that modern dentistry has to offer so that we can give you the best dentistry in the most comfortable way possible.
