Laser Assisted Procedures
The latest conservative gum therapy uses a laser. The laser gently disinfects and evaporates diseased tissues from around the tooth and inside the gum pocket. This treatment interrupts the bacterial destruction of the tissues and bones, giving the gum pocket a chance to heal. This laser therapy is gentle, not painful and has a quick recovery. While gum surgery may still be indicated for severely advanced periodontal cases, laser therapy is a much more conservative, effective, cost-effective and comfortable option for beginning to moderate periodontal cases.
