Laser Treatment for Gum Disease in Independence, Ohio

As we always say, dentists fight two things cavities and gum disease. There are a multitude of ways to prevent and treat these oral issues, but today we want to discuss how to treat gum disease with laser therapy. 

What is Laser Gum Treatment?

Treating gum disease with laser therapy is one of the suggested procedures for patients with periodontal disease- those who have bacterial overgrowth and infection in their gums. 

This is a non-surgical procedure where we essential deep clean around and under your gums get rid of the existing bacteria and prevent future bacteria and infection. 

What is the Process for Laser Treatment?

The first step of the appointment is to numb your mouth so that you don't have to worry about us in there. Then our hygienist uses a special tool to lift up your gums just enough so that we can clean as close to the root as possible. This is called scaling and root planing (SRP.)

The next step is for us to use a CO2 non-contact laser to kill the bacteria and viral contaminants. 

Then there are two follow up appointments the next one takes place about three weeks after the first appointment, and we make sure everything is healing correctly. These appointments are quick, easy, and painless with no Novocain necessary. 

Benefits of Scaling and Root Planing Gum Laser Therapy:

  • Short healing times
  • Non-surgical and minimally invasive
  • Keeps your gums and teeth healthy
  • Reduces risk of bacterial infection 
  • Low stress
