What Is Laser Gum Treatment?

Your gum health is important. Failure to care for them properly can result in serious problems, like oral cancer and gum disease. At The Dentist of Allen in Allen, TX, we use the latest laser technology to treat a wide array of gum (periodontal) problems. Our state-of-the-art laser helps our team perform more efficient treatment of the advanced stages of gum disease (periodontitis). We also use laser technology to perform exams that find cancer and pre-cancer of the mouth. Laser gum treatments may also be performed in some cosmetic dentistry procedures to sculpt the appearance of the gums. Make an appointment with our team to learn more about laser gum treatments.

What Should I Expect During A Laser Gum Treatment?

Laser gum treatment can be performed in our office and generally only requires local anesthesia. Additional sedation choices may be available if you experience anxiety or fear. Before your treatment, a member of our team will go over precisely what to expect during your specific procedure (treatment for periodontal disease, a dental biopsy, crown lengthening, etc.). The laser reduces bleeding and frequently eliminates the need for stitches.

We will provide you with post-treatment care instructions before you go home. Your mouth may be tender or swollen so you may want to stick to a liquid or soft food diet for a few days. For gum disease treatment or crown lengthening, you may need to make additional appointments so we can assess your progress and determine if another treatment is needed. If a biopsy has been performed, you might have to return to our office to get your results. If we discover the presence of oral cancer, we will go over your treatment options and next steps.

Took my kids here for the first time. The office staff was friendly and quick. Our wait time was little to none and they have late hours so the kids don’t miss school!

I love the thorough cleanings and professional care I receive here. I couldn't ask for a better dentist and am very glad my family chose to come here. I recommend this office 100% and some. See you in 6 months.

I have been going to David and Dr. Kim since 1986. He is the only dentist I will let touch my mouth. They are honest and they will always be up front with me. I really like the girls in the front office also. He hires the best!!! Their prices are the same as other dentists. The equipment is state of the art. I like the way they decrease the pain of any shots that has to be put in my mouth. Do you want to pay for dental work that will have to be redone in a few years? If you do, do not go to this office. They always use the best and the most cost effective treatment.

Friendly and knowledgeable staff, it’s an easy process from start to finish. The dental hygienists are awesome, and do a great job. I have seen both dentists there and I would recommend them both, Dr. Koelker and Dr. Kim. The front office staff does a lot to make sure I am able to schedule and change appointments if needed, and have even reached out after hours via text to double check my insurance several nights before my appointment, to see if I needed to switch to private pay to make sure I wasn’t potentially billed beyond my limits. That’s great service.

Yes I recommend The Dentist of Allen. Both my wife and I have been patients for close to 20 years. We both think Dr Kim is great, along with the rest of the staff.
