Peridontal Gum Treatment



Laser gum treatment at Grieshober Dental addresses many gum problems without pain or worry.  The laser is used as a cosmetic procedure to improve a gummy smile, to treat gum disease, to help bleeding or sore gums, to heal deep gum pockets, and to combat the tooth loss or damage due to gum disease.  After using the laser, ultrasonic scalers and hand instruments, the gum pockets and root surfaces are cleaned and this encourages your natural healing processes to return the gum pocket to health.  Laser gum treatment stops bacterial activity instantly by killing the bacteria in the pocket.  There is little to no bleeding, because the laser seals the tissue as it treats it.  Since tooth roots are not exposed, there is less root sensitivity compared to previously used gum pocket treatments.
