The way to repair the damage is to get rid of the infection and close up the pockets. Until now, that meant surgery and sutures.
But today Laser Periodontal Therapy is a patient-friendly, minimally invasive procedure that’s a great improvement over standard gum surgery.
So why choose laser periodontal therapy over traditional surgery?
Laser periodontal treatment — there’s no cutting and suturing
There's much lesser discomfort with Laser Periodontal Therapy than with standard surgery during
and after the procedure
It takes less time than traditional surgery. All it takes is two visits that may take about two hours each and mostly two follow up visits. Traditional surgery requires four sessions of about one hour each, with subsequent visits for suture removal and additional checkups
Following traditional surgery, recovery can take between two-four weeks during which patients can experience considerable pain and swelling, where they may be restricted to liquid or soft diets
There's less than 24-hour recovery period, so you won't lose time from work. Usually, Ibuprofen is all that is necessary following treatment
