laser gum surgery for gum disease

Periodontal disease is a dangerous condition that affects the gum tissue. Without treatment, it can lead to the deterioration of the jawbone and tooth loss. Fortunately, there have been great strides in the dentistry field over the last few years, and patients at Denville Dentist can now enjoy all the advantages of laser gum therapy.

How It Works

With this form of treatment, our dentist uses the Ivoclar Odyssey Laser to eliminate inflamed tissue. Once our dentist has removed the infected tissue and exposed the root, our team can begin with the scaling. This entails scraping off all the plaque and calculus right below the gumline. Any rough spots are removed that could potentially lead to infections in the future. Thanks to the laser, the space between the root and gum can start to regenerate.

The Benefits

There are many benefits of getting this procedure done. The patient does not require any anesthesia because the lasers are so precise, it can target the infected areas precisely. There is no need for cutting into the tissues, which results in less bleeding and minimal discomfort. Additionally, the recovery time is shorter. It is a much simpler way to deal with gum disease, and our dentist is trained to use it perfectly.

Dr. Hal H. Kimowitz uses the Ivoclar Odyssey Laser, which is at the forefront of modern diode laser technology. It is ideal for preventive maintenance and soft tissue modification.
