Discover the Benefits of Laser Gum Surgery!

What are the biggest benefits of laser gum surgery?

If you are diagnosed with periodontal disease, laser gum surgery may be a good option for you. Some of the biggest benefits of having laser gum surgery are:

  • A fast recovery time
  • Little discomfort
  • Higher chance of reattachment of gum tissue
  • Bone regeneration
  • Reduced risk of infection
  • Less time in the dental office
  • Decreased bleeding
  • Decreased inflammation
  • Little to no gum recession

What is the difference between traditional gum surgery and laser surgery?

Traditional surgery is the removal of unhealthy gum tissue in order to get rid of gum disease. Laser surgery gets rid of the tissue, but without having to cut into the skin. It is much safer than traditional surgery.

What should I expect after laser gum surgery?

You will probably experience some minimal pain after surgery. Usually pain medications are prescribed for those needing a relief after surgery. You will also be required to eat soft foods and refrain from smoking after surgery. The recovery period is much faster with laser surgery compared to traditional surgery.
