Gum Disease Laser Therapy

Drs. Ching, Ross and Lai are proud to offer the latest technology available for periodontal therapy: laser treatment. There are some advantages to using laser therapy as opposed to the traditional methods requiring a scalpel and sutures.

Benefits:

Comfort:

With laser treatment, there is reduced or no bleeding, minimized swelling, no charring, and no drill noise or vibration. The stress and anxiety often associated with dental work is therefore eliminated when you experience quick, effective, and essentially pain-free laser procedures. Also, postoperative sensitivity can be limited by laser dentistry, and recovery time can be quicker than with traditional methods.

Reduced Risk of Infection:

The laser’s high-energy light beam acts as a sterilizer on the area it is working, thereby reducing the risk of bacterial infections and relapses.

Uses:

We can perform a variety of procedures using laser technology, such as a frenectomy, osseous surgery, and treatment of diseased implants. We are sometimes also able to use laser technology as a way to regenerate healthy gums and remove diseases areas in a virtually painless way. This method also encourages healthy gum to regenerate and attach to the teeth.
