Laser Gum Treatment

Request Appointment

The gums are often taken for granted, but these tissue structures are the foundation of your smile. Without the appropriate dental care and oral hygiene, the gums can become infected, causing loose teeth, discomfort, and bad breath. The more severe cases of gum infection can even threaten the stability of your teeth. At Dental Healing Arts, we can treat various gum conditions with laser gum treatment for decreased pain and more effective results.

What Causes Gum Infections?  

Gum infections (also known as gum disease or periodontitis) result from an accumulation of bacteria on the teeth and just below the gumline. Whenever you eat or drink, small amounts of debris and sugar remain on your teeth, creating a biofilm. This bacterial biofilm will be the precursor of gum disease if you do not brush your teeth thoroughly enough. This perfect bacterial breeding ground releases toxins that can aggravate the gums, causing inflammation, bleeding, and eventual bone loss.  

Why Use Laser Gum Treatment?

Historically, the standard treatment for gum disease involved cutting the gums, scraping away layers of plaque and tartar from the teeth with specialized tools, and placing sutures over the area. Most often, this caused unpleasant aesthetic results with long-looking teeth. Thanks to advancements in laser technology like LANAP®, Fotona TwinLight Periodontal Treatment®, and Waterlase Repair, we can now use lasers to eliminate bacterial growth from the teeth and gums and allow for bone loss to regenerate. These lasers kill off bacteria without the discomfort of other treatment options, and the results are more thorough and long-lasting.

  • Effective and long-lasting
  • Painless and fast
  • More comfortable than traditional options
