If you have periodontal disease that has developed to the point that surgery has been recommended, you will be glad to know that there is an alternative to traditional gum surgery.
The objective of the surgery is to remove the infected gum tissue, and unfortunately traditional methods often result in gum recession and sensitive teeth. A laser beam on the other hand, can remove the diseased tissue without flapping open the gums, so the surgery is much less invasive. The level of patient discomfort is also greatly reduced since there are no stitches that need time to heal.
A dentist trained and experienced in laser surgery can perform the procedure so efficiently that you can expect to go back to your regular routine the same day. The laser therapy is much more comfortable than traditional gum surgery.
Laser surgery has been known to actually regenerate the bone structure, restoring it to a healthy state and because it is less invasive and the cost is about the same for either procedure, most people prefer to choose laser surgery as an option.
