Surgery Free Treatment for Healthy Gums

Laser gum treatment is an alternative treatment to traditional gum surgery without the cutting and stitching required in older treatment methods.

The goals of laser gum surgery are to reverse the damaging effects of bacteria and to help you maintain a healthy mouth. There are many other benefits as well.

  •  Less invasive

  • Laser surgery is far less invasive than older methods of gum surgery. Traditional gum surgery requires medical instruments that slice into the gum tissue, leaving painful wounds that require stitches and healing time. Because the laser never cuts into your gum tissue, it offers a decreased risk of infection, sensitivity, and bleeding after the procedure. This also means the risk of complications is low. Because laser treatment is so gentle, many patients are less afraid to get their oral health problems fixed.

  • Treats gum disease

  • Gingivitis / gum disease when not treated in time leads to tooth loss. Patients with advanced gum disease can save their natural teeth with this laser treatment. Gum disease leaves you with deep pockets of bacteria that regular dental cleaning can’t fix. A laser is more likely to eliminate all the harmful bacteria, even when they’re stuck in deep pockets.

  •  Improves smile

  • Straight white teeth help you feel confident in your smile. Gums also play an important role in your self-esteem. Do your teeth feel “short,” or do you think your smile is too “gummy”? If you feel the proportion of gum tissue to teeth is unbalanced, it could make you self-conscious about your smile. Laser gum surgery contours the shape of your gums and trims the excess tissue, giving you the beautiful smile you’ve always wanted.

  • Lasers are precise

  • No healthy gum tissue is damaged during laser gum surgery. Lasers are used to fix damaged tissue and stimulate new, healthy tissue growth. This method is extremely accurate and precise. The laser itself distinguishes healthy gum tissue from harmful gum tissue. Additionally, it won’t affect bones or teeth.

  •  Fast recovery

  • Traditional gum surgeries require weeks of recovery that include pain, swelling, and a liquid diet. The recovery time for laser gum surgery is short and patients typically only feel mild discomfort. Because there’s no cutting or stitching involved, the laser process offers quick recovery with minimal downtime. By not using traditional surgical tools such as scalpels, your doctor removes less tissue, causing less pain, bleeding, and inflammation.
