Should You Ask About Laser Gum Disease Treatment

Posted on 9/20/2017 by Dr. Hallas

Laser gum disease treatment is a fairly new treatment and can be just as effective as normal dental methods. Lasers can be used for different dental procedures.

Let's take a look at some of the pros and cons to help you get a better idea if this is something you should look into.

Pros of Laser Gum Disease Treatment

•  If you have anxiety at the dentist with the sound of drills a laser treatment may encourage you to go.
•  Lasers are great for removing tartar, plaque, or bacteria on the gum line.
•  When lasers are used to remove bacteria along the gum line or root the patient will experience less swelling and bleeding during the procedure.

The Laser is Able to Pinpoint a Smaller Area.

•  Lasers are a great way to reshape your gum line to remove gum disease.
•  Lasers are also able to kill bacteria as soon as it touches it, leaving your mouth healthier for having it done.

Cons of Laser Gum Disease Treatment

•  While lasers can get a lot of the job done your dentist made still have to pull out the drill.
•  Lasers can tone down a lot of the discomfort. However, they do not eliminate the use of anesthesia.
•  Laser gum disease treatment doesn't have a set price so you will still need to have an exam done by your dentist and make sure this will be covered by your insurance.

When it comes to making sure you ask the right questions, keep a couple things in mind. Lasers are produced by an energy source that creates a light and is used as a tool.

Make sure before you make any decisions you talk to your dentist about what they will be doing during the procedure. Then decide if this is right for you.
