What is Laser Gum Surgery

LANAP laser gum disease treatment is a state-of-the-art technique for gum disease treatment. It’s minimally invasive, meaning it does not require a scalpel or cutting to remove unhealthy gum tissue. The LANAP laser uses concentrated light energy to clean and remove only the affected tissue and then sterilize the affected areas. It also encourages healthy gum tissue to reattach itself to the teeth and surrounding areas, resulting in less gum recession. In comparison to other gum disease treatments, LANAP laser gum disease treatment is faster, less invasive, and much more comfortable for the patient.

Is Laser Gum Surgery Right for Me?

The best candidates for LANAP laser gum surgery are those who suffer from moderate to severe periodontal (gum) disease and are seeking gingivitis treatment. These patients will usually have had multiple visits to their dentist for evaluation, deep cleanings and scaling, and other treatments.

Other candidates may include those with recurring or persistent pockets around the teeth and visible signs of inflammation or infection in the gum tissue. Suppose you are experiencing bleeding, inflammation, gum recession, pain, or discomfort when eating or brushing. In that case, we recommend scheduling a consultation with Dr. Wong and Dr. Milton to determine if LANAP laser gum surgery may be the right solution for you.

The Advantages of Laser Gum Surgery Vs. Traditional Gum Surgery

Laser gum surgery offers many benefits over traditional cut-and-sew surgery gum disease treatment. With laser gum surgery, post-operative pain is drastically reduced due to the elimination of conventional flap surgery and suturing. Most post-operative medications are as simple as Advil or Extra Strength Tylenol, compared to prescription medications that may be required after a traditional cut-and-sew procedure. The recovery time with laser gum surgery is significantly shorter, with most patients able to return to their routine that same day.

Other benefits of laser gum surgery include minimal bleeding and swelling and a reduced risk of infection. All these advantages make laser gum surgery a viable option for those considering this type of procedure. We understand these benefits, so we typically use laser gum surgery for periodontitis treatments with our patients. The process allows us to deliver effective results while ensuring our patients’ experience is as comfortable as possible. Laser gum disease surgery benefits those looking for a minor correction, as the healing time and chances of infection are lower than traditional methods.
