Laser gum surgery is carried out due to the occurrence of peridontal gum disease. This disease is caused by different types of bacteria that appear within the oral cavity. Peridontal gum disease may manifest itself in different forms but in most cases it is in form of plaque on ones teeth and gum.
The main objective of the dentist in this case is to completely remove all the bad bacteria within the oral cavity. This is done using a special laser that guarantees accuracy and precision during the process of plaque removal.
This form of surgery is quickly gaining popularity because it does not involve cuts and incisions using a scalpel. This laser surgery is very minimally invasive and in most cases the patient is anaesthetized for less pain and faster recovery.
If you suffer from peridontal gum disease, find out from your dentist if you have the option of laser gum surgery.
