MINIMALLY INVASIVE TREATMENT FOR GUM DISEASE
Before laser treatment was readily available for gum disease patients, scaling and root planing therapy or osseous surgery were the standard options for treating gum disease. Those techniques are still widely used today — and Dr. Pack still uses those techniques for certain cases — but we now have the option of treating the infection with a targeted laser.
“Periodontal lasers eliminate the need for cutting and sutures while promoting a fast recovery.”
– Dr. Pack
HOW LASER GUM SURGERY CAN HELP
Unlike conventional procedures that involve cutting away diseased tissue and using stitches, laser therapy treats the infection without any scalpels involved. We simply pass the laser over the infected areas a few times to kill bacteria. The gums are then left to heal and we will follow up with you during periodontal maintenance visits to make sure everything is healing properly.
