What Is Laser Gum Surgery?

Technology has revolutionized modern dentistry, and it has opened up numerous avenues for dental professionals. Your dentist can use laser gum surgery to help treat and reverse the symptoms of gum disease. Keep reading if you would like to find out exactly what laser gum surgery is.

If you have refrained from seeking treatment for your gum disease because you are worried about invasive procedures and long recovery times, you will be happy to learn that laser gum surgery can meet your needs. Instead of using a scalpel, your oral surgeon will use a laser to remove bacteria and eliminate the infection. This means that you will not bleed as much as you would during traditional gum surgery. Laser treatment also helps to preserve your gum tissue, and a local anesthetic is administered beforehand to keep you as comfortable as possible. The laser can even seal your nerve endings and close the wound.

For more on laser gum surgery, call Dr. Charles Marks at (212) 279-1232. Our general dentistry practice in New York offers a multitude of procedures in addition to laser gum surgery, such as root canals, dentures, and sealants. Stop by and see us or visit our website to find out how we can help.
