Laser gum surgery is actually quite similar to traditional gum surgery. However, laser technology is used instead of manual tools. Utilizing laser technology actually makes the entire process easier, more effective and safer than traditional surgery. Laser technology is actually capable of sanitizing and cauterizing as the procedure is performed, reducing the risk of bleeding gums during and after your procedure. Patients are also at a reduced risk for other complications following surgery and often have a much quicker and more comfortable recovery time.
When it comes to oral surgery, laser dentistry is a wonderful option for any patient. It reduces the amount of time the procedure takes, makes the procedure more precise, makes the procedure safer and can even greatly reduce recovery time. Patients also enjoy the fact that no sutures or stitches need to be removed following the treatment.
Getting laser gum surgery is just like any other surgery. However, a beam of intense light is being used. Prior to your surgery, your mouth and the area will be completely prepared, allowing your dentist to focus on the area.
