What are the benefits of laser gum treatment compared to traditional treatment?
Laser treatment is very precise, which means that it minimizes damage to healthy gum tissue. This is very important in avoiding excessive gum recession after treatment is done. Laser treatment is gentle and offers reduced sensitivity and bleeding after the procedure. Thus, patients experienced minimal discomfort and a shorter recovery time.
Furthermore, the laser is maximally effective in an annihilating group of anaerobic bacteria that colonize the deepest tooth surface and gum tissue. This will enhance the success rate of our gum treatment remarkably.
Types Of Gum Treatment
Non-surgical gum treatment is the fundamental treatment as initial periodontal therapy for decades. It involves using power-driven or manual instrumentations to debride the root surfaces, generally called scaling and root planing.
Laser treatment involves using powerful, pinpointed light beams of thermal energy to perform multiple tasks during gum surgery. Not only laser treatment removes bacteria and disease tissue, but it also promotes wound healing and therefore enhances gum tissue to reattach tooth surface.
Surgical gum treatment
Surgical gum treatment is indicated for patients suffering from advanced periodontitis. Gum graft surgery will cover the exposed root surface and help prevent additional gum recession or bone loss. Regenerative procedures can reverse some of the gum damage by regenerating lost bone and tissue with membranes, bone grafts, or tissue-stimulating proteins.
Generally, if you notice the following symptoms, multiple of your teeth loosening in a short period of time, repeated swelling/abscess over your gum or gum line receding extensively, please seek advice from the dentist.
No, oral and topical antibiotics only help to control bacterial infection. However, clinical procedures and patients’ efforts in maintaining good oral hygiene afterwards are the main factors that cure gum diseases.

The total duration differs by condition. A mild to moderate condition takes roughly 3-6 months and a more serious condition may take years to stabilize the conditions.
However, gum problems always require lifetime monitoring of the condition in order to make sure that the condition is within proper management and follow-up.
