What is Laser Periodontal Treatment?
Laser periodontal treatment is a cutting-edge solution to combat gum disease. Utilizing a sophisticated dental tool, a thin laser fiber, this non-surgical procedure precisely targets and eliminates inflamed or infected gum tissues caused by periodontal disease. Unlike traditional methods, the laser focuses on affected areas while preserving healthy tissues.
This revolutionary approach to treating gum disease and diseased tissue ensures a painless path to healthy gums, making it a preferred choice for individuals seeking a less invasive alternative to surgery.
Benefits of Laser Gum Treatment
Choosing laser gum treatment at Westbury Dental Spa offers several benefits, like:
- Precision in Targeting Infections: The laser accurately and proficiently targets only infected regions, ensuring a focused and effective treatment.
- Minimal Discomfort and Recovery: With no incisions, stitches, or lengthy recovery periods, laser gum treatment minimizes discomfort and leads to faster healing post-treatment.
- No General Anesthesia Required: Unlike traditional surgical methods, laser gum treatment eliminates the need for general anesthesia, making the procedure more accessible and comfortable for patients.
- Preservation of Healthy Tissues: The laser selectively targets diseased tissues, leaving surrounding healthy tissues untouched. This preservation is crucial for maintaining overall oral health.
Candidacy for Laser Periodontal Treatment
Candidacy for laser gum therapy depends on:
- Stage of Gum Disease: This treatment is ideal for individuals at the early gingivitis stage or those with advanced periodontal disease.
- Preference for Minimally Intrusive Treatment: This treatment is suited for individuals who seek an alternative to traditional gum surgery.

How Does Laser Periodontal Treatment Work?
Laser periodontal treatment operates on the principle of precision and minimally invasive technology. Using a thin laser fiber, thinner than three human hairs, our skilled professionals target and eliminate infected gum tissues. This cutting-edge laser surgery approach ensures accuracy, leaving healthy tissues untouched.
- Targeted Tissue Removal: The first step involves the laser fiber delicately removing problematic gum tissues surrounding the base of your teeth.
- Plaque and Tartar Clearance: Following tissue removal, the laser effectively clears away accumulated plaque and tartar, ensuring a thorough cleansing of the treated area.
- Smoothing Rough Areas: To complete the process, any rough areas on your teeth, both above and below the gums, are smoothed down. This reduces the likelihood of future bacterial buildup, promoting long-term gum health.
Laser periodontal treatment revolutionizes the traditional approach to laser gum surgery, offering a precise and efficient solution for those seeking advanced gum care.
Aftercare for Laser Gum Treatment
Ensuring a smooth recovery post-laser gum treatment is crucial for optimal results. Follow these aftercare guidelines to promote healing and maintain your newfound gum health:
- Oral Hygiene Practices: Adhere to a strict oral hygiene routine, including gentle brushing and flossing. Your dentist may recommend a special mouthwash for added care.
- Avoiding Irritants: Steer clear of tobacco and alcohol, as they can hinder the healing process. Additionally, avoid consuming excessively hot or spicy foods immediately after treatment.
- Regular Follow-ups: Schedule and attend follow-up appointments with your dentist as recommended. These appointments allow for the monitoring of your recovery progress.
- Stay Hydrated: Adequate hydration supports overall health, including the healing of gum tissues. Drink plenty of water to aid in the recovery process.
- Healthy Diet Choices: Opt for a diet rich in vitamins and minerals to promote overall well-being. Nutrient-dense foods contribute to a faster and more robust recovery.
