Dr. Gunnerson Uses Lasers To Treat Gum Disease

Lasers Are Painless And Effective

By using dental lasers in gum treatment, Dr. Gunnerson can focus on treating the infected areas while leaving the healthy tissue untouched. Dental laser treatments are virtually painless and complete treatments more quickly, thus providing you with a more convenient and comfortable visit.

Why Does Gunnerson Dental Use Lasers?

Laser gum treatment is a type of treatment for periodontal disease that is completed using a dental laser. Dr. Gunnerson may recommend laser gum treatment if your smile is affected by gingivitis or periodontal disease. Also known as gum disease, periodontal disease is a degenerative condition caused by bacteria in plaque. As the plaque builds up on the teeth, the bacteria may cause inflammation and infection in the gums and supporting tissues. When left untreated, gum disease can lead to tooth loss, bone loss, and receding gums. Laser gum treatment is used to kill bacteria, remove infected tissue, and encourage the growth of healthy gum tissue. Through treatment, we strive to halt the progress of the disease and encourage the growth of healthy tissue.

Other Benefits Of Dr. Gunnerson Using Lasers

Periodontal treatment completed using dental lasers is typically more comfortable than traditional methods. In fact, you may not even require anesthetic for your laser gum treatment. Laser gum treatment is efficient and comfortable. Laser dentistry often eliminates the need for stitches and decreases your risk of infection following treatment, and dental lasers also minimize bleeding.
