If you have been diagnosed with gum disease and are concerned about the pain and time traditionally required to treat it, you are not alone. We offer a gentle laser alternative to traditional osseous surgery that does not require any cutting or stitching of the gums. Laser gum surgery offers a virtually pain-free experience to eliminate harmful bacteria and restore your gums to optimal health.
Avoiding a necessary gum surgery can be detrimental to your overall health and even cost you your teeth, since gum disease breaks down the connection between the teeth and the gums and jawbone. Laser gum surgery is an effective, minimally invasive alternative to traditional osseous surgery. With laser treatment, there is no longer any reason to leave your gum disease untreated.
Laser gum surgery does not involve any cutting or sutures, typical of osseous surgery. Because of this, most of our patients are able to eat painlessly within a few days rather than the traditional 2-3 weeks. The procedure itself is quick and causes very little bleeding or discomfort. Little to no bleeding means a much lower risk for complications or infection.
