Can gum surgery be treated with lasers

Posted on 2/2/2024 by Weo Admin
Traditional methods of treating gum disease involve invasive methods that often take time to heal. This became uncomfortable for people. In 1990, Gregg II with the help of Delwin McCarthy came up with this new procedure for treating gum diseases with laser technology. So, yes, gum diseases can be treated with the use of laser technology.

How it is done

This method is minimally invasive; therefore, the patient is assured of comfort. The laser is used to target and eliminate the bacteria and the infected tissue. This laser also helps in deep cleaning the tooth root and deep periodontal pockets. Simple as that, and you are assured of a long-term positive result.

Benefits of laser treatment

This method is considered one of the most effective methods in treating minor case and major gum disease cases. It is a minimally invasive method that requires no incisions and sutures helping reduce the post-surgery discomfort. The laser highly targets the affected area leaving the tissues intact and healthy. It also reduces swelling and bleeding of gums during and after surgery. The production of heat and light seals off the blood vessels and the nerve endings. In addition to that, it is said to cause less downtime, therefore, facilitating the resumption of normal functioning soon after the procedure with improved results and enhanced facial aesthetics.

Laser treatment might cost $500 to $3800 depending on the severity of the gum disease. It is also the only FDA-approved laser treatment method for periodontal diseases. This method has more advantages as compared to traditional gum surgery since it also improves gum tissue regeneration and new bone growth. However, before considering this method of treatment, our dentist will take you through some examinations and tests. You are advised to eat healthy foods before and after the procedure to maintain your oral health. That alone can help fight periodontal diseases, our dentists on the other hand are open and very ready to help you with this or more information. Contact us today.
