Laser Gum Treatment

Laser Gum Surgery can treat a single tooth or a full mouth affected by gum disease. When compared with traditional gum surgery, laser surgery affords you the following benefits:

  • Virtually painless*
  • No incisions or sutures 
  • little to no risk of gum recession.
  • faster healing and reduced downtime.
  • encourages the regeneration of the bone that supports your teeth.

Our doctors recommend laser gum surgery, not only because it is more convenient for our patients but also because it promotes better bone health. Stimulating the bone with the laser encourages the regrowth of bone lost to periodontal disease. This allows our doctors to save teeth that have become loose, avoiding the need for extraction and subsequent tooth restoration procedures. Treatment with laser surgery improves the health of your entire smile.

Gum disease can quickly affect your healthy smile, leaving you with bleeding gums, bad breath, and gum recession. Without treatment, you could lose your teeth and bone yet more than half of American adults suffer from this chronic infection. If you have gum disease, but have avoided treatment due to lengthy recovery times associated with gum surgery or dental anxiety, laser gum surgery can restore the health of your smile without scalpels or sutures.

Laser gum surgery is covered under dental insurance just as scalpel surgery is covered.

*Discomfort is based on individual sensitivity to pain, and other factors. Not all patients can be treated painlessly without anesthetic. However, dentists using laser treatment to perform typical cavity preparations report not using anesthetic in the majority of cases.
