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.
