Laser For Gum Disease
Laser for Discolored Gum
- PERIODONTAL CARE: Dental laser can provide vital periodontal treatment. During the laser procedure, your dentist will apply a tiny laser fiber between your teeth and gum. The energy released from laser will remove bacteria, which will allow your gum to regrow and reattach to your healthy teeth once more.
- COSMETIC GUM CONTOURING: If you have a gummy smile or an uneven gum line, our periodontists can use laser to reshape your gum line to optimal shape.
- GINGIVECTOMY / GINGIVOPLASTY: Laser is used to remove or recontour excessive gum overgrowth resulting in gummy smile, gum inflammation and redness, and occasional discomfort to give you better and healthier gum.
- COLD SORE TREATMENTS: Laser can be utilized to minimize cold sore appearance and redness, speed up cold sore healing, and reduce the chance of recurrence.
- FRENUM OR FRENECTOMY: a frenum is a naturally occurring muscle attachment, normally seen between the front teeth or under tongue, which can result in gap teeth, gum recession, or difficulty in speech. The excessive frenum can simply be removed by laser therapy.
