Gum Disease Laser Therapy

Gum Disease Treatment Rochester MN

Dr. Carlson is proud to offer the latest technology available for periodontal therapy: laser treatment. There are numerous advantages to using laser therapy as opposed to the traditional methods requiring a scalpel and sutures.

We are proud to offer laser dentistry, which uses cutting edge technology to provide more comfortable, precise, and efficient dental care.  Biolase® is used for a variety of dental laser procedures, including:

  • Teeth Whitening
  • Cold sores and Cankers sores
  • Gingival (gum) contouring
  • Easing tongue and cheek attachments
  • Gum disease therapy
  • Removal of bacteria during cleanings

Benefits of Laser Therapy:

Comfort:

With laser treatment, there is reduced or no bleeding, minimized swelling, no charring, and no drill noise or vibration. The stress and anxiety often associated with dental work is therefore eliminated when you experience quick, effective, and essentially pain-free laser procedures. Also, postoperative sensitivity is greatly limited by laser dentistry, and recovery time is much quicker than with traditional methods. In fact, due to the less-invasive nature of the laser technique, the mouth begins to heal immediately after work is completed!

Reduced Risk of Infection:

The laser’s high-energy light beam acts as a sterilizer on the area it is working, thereby reducing the risk of bacterial infections and relapses.

Anesthesia Limited or Eliminated:

Because laser dentistry is virtually painless, no longer will you suffer with fear of injections and numbness. Often, only a light anesthetic spray is required. Laser treatment eliminates the complications and cost associated with anesthesia.

Uses:

Dr. Carlson can perform a variety of procedures using laser technology, such as a frenectomy, gum sterilization, and gum contouring. Dr. Carlson is also able to use laser technology as a way to regenerate healthy gums and remove diseases areas in a virtually painless way. This method also encourages healthy gum to regenerate and attach to the teeth. There is a much lower chance of gum disease returning when laser therapy is used as opposed to traditional surgery.
