Laser Technology

Laser Technology in Aurora, ON

While the prospect of being diagnosed with gum disease may sound unpleasant, many modern treatments can help with healing and recovery. Our highly trained dentist near you uses laser technology to treat gum infections successfully.

As necessary as gum surgery may sometimes be, it’s often complex and involves a lengthy healing time. Laser technology offers a superior alternative in terms of efficacy, healing and recovery.

Understanding Periodontal Disease

The health of your gums is as crucial as the health of your teeth. Gum disease is caused when oral plaque enters the gums and causes inflammation, pain and soreness. Patients who smoke have increased genetic susceptibility, and patients who practice poor oral hygiene are at higher risk of developing periodontal disease. Certain underlying systemic diseases like diabetes may also result in gum tissue inflammation.

If ignored, the oral plaque begins to attack tooth roots and surrounding bone, leading to potentially serious consequences like tooth loss, bleeding and pus formation. In advanced cases, the patient may need to undergo invasive gum surgery.

Laser Technology in Aurora, ON

Laser technology is often used in combination with traditional treatments like scaling and root planing. It is used to eliminate diseased gum tissue from surrounding tooth roots. After removing plaque and tartar, we then use planing techniques to smooth the tooth roots to promote healing.

Our experienced dentist at Aurora Dentistry has undergone extensive training in the use of laser technology. Our patients can be confident of benefitting from safe and effective laser gum therapy.

How Laser Technology Can Help

Laser gum disease treatment offers a host of benefits:

  • There is no need for sutures as there is no need to cut into the gums
  • Most patients experience less discomfort during and after the procedure compared to traditional surgery
  • Gum treatment takes fewer visits, and recovery is much faster
  • There are fewer chances of recurrence, and outcomes are more stable and long-term
  • Laser therapy is safe even for patients with underlying diabetes or hemophilia
