Gum disease is a very serious and progressive oral infection that can lead to tooth and bone loss. Gum disease has also been shown to increase the risk of other systemic health conditions such as heart disease, diabetes and some forms of cancer. If you have been recently diagnosed with gum disease, you may be wondering what to do about it now. We are here to help you. Dr. Daren Larsen and Dr. Josh Haslem provide laser gum surgery to stop the progression of periodontal disease and to restore your overall health. Call our office today to schedule your consultation.
Laser gum surgery is a minimally-invasive alternative to traditional gum surgery and is designed to eliminate diseased tissue, stop the progression of periodontal disease, and to reduce the depth of periodontal pockets that surround your teeth. Traditional periodontal surgery uses a scalpel to cut open your gums and requires stitches accompanied by a prolonged recovery period. Patients can experience inflammation, increased risk of infection, recession and sensitivity.
Utilizing the revolutionary Deka CO2 dental laser our doctors can precisely remove only the infected tissue surrounding your teeth without needing to use a scalpel or stitches. Laser gum surgery allows for a faster procedure with little to no bleeding which means a decreased risk of infection and a fast recovery time. Saving your teeth and bone just got a whole lot easier and much less painful!
