Laser Gum Surgery Offers More Comfort and Convenience for You
Laser dentistry has revolutionized gum surgery. Traditional treatment for advanced periodontal disease, for example, consisted mainly of osseous surgery, wherein Dr. Duffy would cut into the gum tissue in order to access the bacteria, manually remove the bacteria, and cut away any infected tissue. The resulting stitches and swelling would result in an uncomfortable recovery period. However, with laser technology, Dr. Duffy can slip the laser between your teeth and gums easily. Its light eliminates bacteria and diseased tissue with the following benefits:
- No incisions or sutures
- Less swelling immediately after surgery because of bacteria removal
- Minimal bleeding and discomfort
- Faster recovery
- Regenerates bone tissue
Laser Dentistry Improves Root Canal Therapy
Laser is an excellent tool for sterilization. Dr. Duffy utilizes the laser to eliminate bacteria during root canal procedures. Infection creates the need for a root canal in the first place, so utilizing the laser to sterilize your tooth and its canals leads to an overall improved result.
