Home | What Is Laser Gum Treatment

For people who fear going to the dentist and having work done on their teeth and gums, hearing they need treatment is often scary. However, there are some new improvements in the dental industry that can treat problems without having to undergo surgery or using a scalpel to correct. Laser gum treatment is a process to help the gums recover from periodontal, or gum disease. It costs about the same as traditional gum surgery, but it is less painful and the recovery time is much faster.

Laser gum treatment is recommended by the dentist after an exam of the mouth. When the gums are diseased more than normal, they will opt to do the procedure as a way to fix the gums so they can continue to grow back normally. The new procedure that uses the laser is easier on a person because it is less painful. Local anesthetics are still used to keep the patient comfortable, but they can be in lower doses. Depending on how much disease in the gums determines how many treatments will be required to heal the mouth. Sometimes two or three visits will be required in order to get all of the tartar removed from under the gums so they can begin to heal properly.

Some insurance plans will cover the cost for the laser gum treatment. Before you have the procedure done, it is best to check with the provider to make sure. Check if there is a deductible or a copay that needs to be met first. If the insurance company does not cover it, many dentist offices will work out a payment plan in order to get the treatment done and so you can have a healthy mouth.

Laser gum treatment is becoming more popular as people opt for ways to improve their oral health without as much discomfort or time off to heal. There is still healing time required after a treatment to the gums, but without any incisions or as much swelling, they are easier to care for. There is also less complications and less after care needed in order to get back to eating normal foods. The dentist will give a list of directions to follow after the treatment, including care, foods to avoid and how to treat the gums until they are completely healed. If you are curious about the procedure or if you need it, consult with your dentist and they will explain the laser gum treatment process to you.
