WHO NEEDS LASER GUM TREATMENT?
There are many instances in which laser gum treatments may be performed. For gum disease, laser technology can be utilized to remove plaque and bacteria that sits deep within the gum pockets. For a biopsy, the laser can be used to remove tissue from the necessary area. Laser gum treatment can also help if you would like to eliminate overgrown gum tissue and reveal more of your natural enamel for a more attractive smile. When compared to traditional gum surgery, laser gum treatments tend to be less invasive and do not require stitches. You will require little or no anesthesia during this treatment and will also enjoy a shorter recovery period.
HOW IS GUM TREATMENT WITH A LASER DONE?
Laser gum treatment can be performed in our office since it normally only requires local anesthesia. Nevertheless, other sedation options can be made available if you require additional assistance with relaxation and feeling comfortable. Prior to your treatment, Dr. Call will go over exactly what you can expect during your session process, whether you're being treated for gum disease, getting a dental biopsy, having your teeth lengthened, or undergoing aesthetic gum contouring. The laser reduces bleeding and often omits the need for sutures.
Dr. Call will provide you with post-treatment care instructions before you're sent home to heal. Since your gums will be tender or swollen, you may want to follow a liquid or soft food diet for a few days. For gum disease therapy or crown lengthening, you may have to make another appointment so Dr. Call can assess your progress and determine if another treatment is required. When a biopsy has been taken, you might need to return to our office to receive your results. If oral cancer is found, Dr. Call will go over your treatment options and determine the next step from there.
ERADICATE PERIODONTAL DISEASE
