What is Laser Gum Surgery?
Treatment of Gum disease with laser assisted surgery
This procedure is performed to treat gum disease. Traditional gum disease procedures have been very invasive. Using laser in treatment of gum disease has been shown to have the following advantages: The surgery will be minimally invasive and very conservative. The laser is capable of not only mechanically removing infectious tissue, but it also disinfects the area being treated, hence faster healing with better results will be seen in most cases. Due to the conservative manipulation of the areas being treated, minimal post operative discomfort will be experienced by the patient. Less tooth sensitivity and recession is seen with Laser Assisted Periodontal Surgery, when compared to traditional gum surgery. The Bio-stimulatory effect of the laser also helps a faster surgical recovery.
