Gum Disease Laser Therapy

What is Gum Disease Laser Therapy?

  • Dr. Saliba & Dr. Moukarim are proud to offer the latest technology available for periodontal therapy: laser treatment.
  • There are numerous advantages to using laser therapy as opposed to the traditional methods requiring a scalpel and sutures.

Benefits of Laser Therapy to treat Gum Disease:

Comfort:

  • With laser treatment, there is reduced or no bleeding, minimized swelling, no charring, and no drill noise or vibration.
  • The stress and anxiety often associated with dental work is therefore eliminated when you experience quick, effective, and essentially pain-free laser procedures.
  • Also, postoperative sensitivity is greatly limited by laser dentistry, and recovery time is much quicker than with traditional methods.
  • In fact, due to the less-invasive nature of the laser technique, the mouth begins to heal immediately after work is completed!

Reduced Risk of Infection:

The laser’s high-energy light beam acts as a sterilizer on the area it is working, thereby reducing the risk of bacterial infections and relapses.

Anesthesia Limited or Eliminated:

Because laser dentistry is virtually painless, no longer will you suffer with fear of injections and numbness. Often, only a light anesthetic spray is required. Laser treatment eliminates the complications and cost associated with anesthesia.

Uses of Laser Technology:

Dr. Saliba and Dr. Moukarim can perform a variety of procedures using laser technology, such as a frenectomy, osseous surgery, and gum grafting. Drs. Saliba and Moukarim are also able to use laser technology as a way to regenerate healthy gums and remove diseases areas in a virtually painless way. This method also encourages healthy gum to regenerate and attach to the teeth. There is a much lower chance of gum disease returning when laser therapy is used as opposed to traditional surgery.
