Laser Treatment for Gum Disease
Laser Gum Surgery Roseville CA
Dr. Gogani is proud to offer the latest technology available for periodontal therapy: laser treatment. There are numerous advantages to using laser therapy as opposed to the traditional methods requiring a scalpel and sutures.
What is laser gum surgery?
Laser gum surgery is the use of lasers instead of traditional periodontal tools to clean tartar (calculus) from the surface of teeth, their roots, and deep pockets that have formed in the gums. If gone untreated, periodontal (gum) disease results in the loss of teeth over time. Regular, professional maintenance is the only way to stop the progression of this disease, and lasers have made the process much easier with virtually no pain!
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 are therefore eliminated when you experience quick, effective, and essentially pain-free laser procedures. Also, postoperative sensitivity is greatly limited by laser dentistry, and recovery time is much quicker than with traditional methods. In fact, due to the less-invasive nature of the laser technique, the mouth begins to heal immediately after work is completed!
What are the benefits of laser gum therapy?
With laser gum treatment, we can give you:
- Less (or no) pain
- Faster healing
- Less (or no) bleeding
- Minimized swelling
- Reduced risk of infection
- No need for anesthesia / numbing shots
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.
Anesthesia Limited or Eliminated:
Because laser dentistry is virtually painless, no longer will you suffer from fear of injections and numbness. Often, only a light anesthetic spray is required. Laser treatment eliminates the complications and cost associated with anesthesia.
Dr. Gogani can perform a variety of procedures using laser technology, such as a frenectomy, osseous surgery, and gum grafting. Dr. Gogani is 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. There is a much lower chance of gum disease returning when laser therapy is used as opposed to traditional surgery.
