Laser gum therapy is an effective way to treat periodontal disease. This advancement in the treatment of gum disease enjoys several benefits including:

  • Reduced sensitivity and discomfort
  • Protection of healthy surrounding tissue
  • Decreased bleeding
  • Promotes re-growth and reattachment of teeth to gums

At Aesthetic Dental Studio, our Calgary periodontal dentists use laser gum therapy to precisely target the pockets of bacteria caused by gum disease. These pockets eventually result in the separation of your teeth from your gums and can ultimately lead to tooth loss. With the use of a laser, concentrated light works to kill the bacteria thoroughly, slowing its re-growth. In this way, your gums can reattach to your teeth and the discomfort of gum disease can be greatly reduced. Why Lasers? The use of lasers in medicine is relatively new. As medical advancements continue, it has been found that lasers offer multiple benefits over traditional forms of surgery. Lasers are much more precise, reducing instances of damage to adjacent tissue. In addition, lasers cut and cauterize at the same time, which results in substantially less bleeding and eliminates the need for sutures. Lasers are clean, highly effective, and provide for significantly less discomfort than traditional periodontal procedures--you may not even need anesthesia. Devoted to our patient’s safety and comfort, we will continue to explore the use of lasers in our practice.
