Gum Disease Laser Therapy


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

Benefits:

Comfort:

With laser treatment, there is reduced or no bleeding, minimized swelling, no charring, and no drill noise or vibration. Patients find this to be less stressful. 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, the need to numb the affected area is greatly reduced and sometimes eliminated, depending on the procedure.

Uses of Laser Dentistry:

Dr. Moussalli can use laser technology to perform a variety of procedures of a surgical nature. In addition, the laser can also be used to enhance the outcome of a variety of non-surgical procedures such as crown and bridge work, root canal treatment, and gum therapy. Dr. Moussalli is able to use laser technology as a way to regenerate healthy gums and remove diseased areas in a virtually painless way. This method also encourages healthy gum tissue 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.
