Laser Gum Surgery Offers A Minimally-Invasive Alternative To Treating Gum Disease

My Gum Recession Was Treated Quickly and Painless With Laser Gum Treatment” -David

An Advantage to Our Patients

Laser gum surgery is a minimally invasive alternative to more aggressive gum disease treatments, such as flap surgery. When treated, gingiva exposed to soft tissue lasers heal faster with significantly better results than when conventional gum surgery methods are used. Because laser therapies are so effective, they make it possible to avoid unnecessary and invasive oral surgeries, which were previously the only options available. If you have a history of periodontal disease and unsuccessful results from traditional dental treatment, then seeing an Annandale, VA gum specialist like Dr. William Wang or Thomas Lin opens up the opportunities for more innovative therapies, including laser gum surgery. During your soft tissue laser treatment, you’ll experience very little discomfort (only a small amount of local anesthetic may be needed.) Afterward, you’ll find that your recovery time is typically much shorter than that after a traditional scaling and root planing (deep cleaning) procedure. Lasers reduce swelling and bleeding, so any lingering soreness is kept to a minimum.

Advanced laser gum surgery provides improved results for patients with gum disease, with little to no recover time needed.

How Laser Gum Surgery Works

Soft tissue dental lasers like the BIOLASE Waterlase use safe light energy combined with a cool stream of water to eliminate infectious disease cells while speeding up the healing process of the healthy ones left behind. We often combine laser gum surgery with traditional periodontal disease treatment (deep cleanings) to maximize results for our patients. Treated areas tend to experience less bleeding, swelling, and faster reattachment to root surfaces (lowering the risk of tooth loss.)

If you’ve been struggling to get your gum disease under control, seeing our periodontist for laser gum surgery could be the key to saving your smile.
