If you have gum disease, it is critical that you undergo some type of treatment to help heal your gums and reduce the size of the pockets around each of your teeth. One of the best methods for healing the gums is with laser therapy. Laser therapy uses a high-powered yet incredibly safe laser to remove only the infected and disease tissue from inside the gum pockets. The gums can then heal fully, closing up these pockets and preventing eventual tooth and bone loss.
Patients who are looking for a quick, easy and noninvasive periodontal treatment alternative are good candidates for laser therapy. No incisions are required and sutures are unnecessary. In fact, depending on the type of work needing to be done, you may not even need a local anesthetic for the laser to be used. The process is quick and effectively works to remove any and all disease and infected tissue in the mouth.
