What Can You Expect From a PerioLase Procedure?
If you have gum disease, the PerioLase dental laser surgery presents an ideal alternative to traditional gum surgery. The skilled laser dentists at Capps, Bowman, Padgett and Associates can utilize the PerioLase to evaporate the bacteria that cause gum disease and remove infected tissue without the need for incisions or stitches.
During laser gum surgery, the fine tip of the PerioLase is slipped between your teeth and gums. The light emitted from the laser only affects bacteria and infected tissue, leaving healthy tissue, teeth, and bone unharmed. Because there are no sutures or incisions, recovery from laser surgery is faster and less painful than that of traditional dentistry.
The PerioLase offers an additional benefit as well. Stimulating the tooth roots with the laser actually encourages the regrowth of supportive bone tissue, improving the health of your teeth and bone.
