Denville Laser Gum Treatment

Laser Dentistry in Denville - New Treatments for Gum Disease, Gingivectomy, and More!

Dental laser technology has revolutionized the way that we can treat gum disease and other related soft tissue issues. With the introduction of laser dentistry, patients have access to a wide range of treatments that are not only more efficient and less invasive than traditional methods but also more comfortable and effective.

What Is A Dental Laser?

A dental laser is a tool used by our periodontal specialist to precisely and carefully perform treatments for gum disease and other soft tissue needs. Dental lasers are used in place of traditional scalpel procedures, resulting in less pain and bleeding, quicker healing times, and fewer postoperative complications. Laser dentistry can be used for gingivectomy, periodontal pocket reduction, and gum tissue contouring.

Laser Gum Disease Treatment

Using a soft tissue laser to treat gum disease has become an increasingly popular option for patients looking to avoid periodontal surgery. This minimally invasive procedure removes diseased gum tissue while sparing healthy tissue and promoting faster healing times than traditional methods. By using a laser, the amount of bleeding and postoperative pain is also greatly reduced. Laser gum treatments help to reduce the number of bacteria in the mouth, restoring your oral health and protecting you from further dental complications.

Treating Peri-Implantitis

Peri-implantitis is an inflammatory process of the gum and bone around dental implants. It is caused by bacterial plaque buildup and can lead to tissue damage, pain, and even implant loss. With the help of a periodontal specialist and laser technology, it is possible to effectively manage and treat peri-implantitis, and its associated symptoms before complications like implant loss occur.

Laser Gingivectomy

A gingivectomy is a procedure performed by a periodontal specialist that removes excess gum tissue from around the teeth. This can help reduce symptoms associated with gum disease, such as gingivitis and periodontitis, as well as improve the aesthetics of someone with a “gummy” smile. Gingivectomies are often used to reduce gum pockets or to even out a patient’s gumline. This procedure can help prevent further damage to the teeth and gums and is an important part of maintaining good oral health.

Completing a gingivectomy with a dental laser provides the highest level of comfort and the fastest recovery possible.

Laser Sensitivity Treatment

Tooth sensitivity is a common issue and can arise as a result of worn enamel or exposed tooth roots from gum recession. These exposed tooth surfaces are porous and contain nerve fibers responsible for feeling cold. When activated, the exposed nerve fibers can overstimulate the tooth nerve and cause discomfort or even pain.

Laser desensitization is an effective and immediate way to treat tooth sensitivity. The laser uses light energy to seal the exposed root surface and prevent overstimulation of the tooth nerve. Patients experience reduction or complete elimination of sensitivity to cold immediately after treatment.
