Laser Gum Disease Treatment in Fort Myers
Minimally Invasive Laser Gum Disease Treatment
Laser gum disease treatment can treat the infection without the need to cut away gum tissue. It is a minimally-invasive procedure that offers a fast healing time and the heat from the laser can promote healthy tissue regeneration.
Laser therapy may be an integral part of your periodontal care treatment plan. After an initial exam to determine the severity of the disease, Dr. Reyes-Viruet will use a laser to deep clean the areas of infection. The laser is minimally invasive and there’s no bruising or swelling and very little sensitivity after treatment. Laser treatment not only repairs the damage the disease has caused, but it also helps regenerate bone and gum tissue that has been lost because of the disease. The laser’s ability to detect the difference between healthy and diseased tissue allows Dr. Reyes-Viruet to remove bacteria from the gums without cutting, damaging, or removing healthy tissue.
