Periodontal Laser Therapy
What Is Periodontal Laser Therapy?
Periodontal laser therapy replaces the traditional scalpel and sutures needed for surgery with a dental laser set at a specific wavelength to target and remove gum tissue. Procedures performed with a laser have many advantages over traditional surgery.
Benefits of Periodontal Laser Therapy
In addition, laser therapy is almost painless, which means very little anesthetic is needed. Typically, a topical numbing spray is all that’s necessary. This eliminates the costs and complications that can be associated with IV sedation anesthesia, which is required during traditional surgeries with a scalpel.
When Is Periodontal Laser Therapy Used?
1. Gingivectomy – a procedure that removes diseased gum tissue in patients with severe periodontal disease or tissue growth over third molars
2. Gingivoplasty, also known as gum contouring surgery or gum lift – a procedure that reshapes or contours the gum line for cosmetic reasons.
