UncategorizedIs laser dentistry worth it?

Although relatively new to modern dentistry, laser gum treatment has become one of the most popular ways to deal with periodontitis, as it offers a wide range of benefits. But if you’re struggling with gum disease, it can be difficult to know what type of treatment will be best for you, so it can help to do your research first.

Here at Al-Fa Perio, we’re specialists in treating gum disease in all its various stages, and we’re renowned for our innovative use of laser treatments. But is laser dentistry really worth the investment? Read on to find out more.

What is laser gum dentistry?

Laser gum treatment is used to treat and prevent gum disease through a range of targeted lasers which can pinpoint an area with unrivalled accuracy, deeply cleaning the tooth and root and deep pockets. Unlike other gum disease treatments, laser dentistry is minimally invasive, and offers a range of other unique benefits which include:

  • Comfortable and pain-free procedure
  • Reduced gum recession post-treatment
  • Removal of infection and promotes bone regeneration
  • Target treatment which doesn’t impact the surrounding area
  • Long-lasting results

How do you know if laser gum treatment is worth it?

Understandably, you may feel hesitant about this type of cutting-edge treatment as it can be a huge investment. So, how do you decide whether it’s really worth considering? The benefits listed above are massive contributors to the popularity of this type of treatment, but there are other things that have led to laser gum treatment being something so sought after, including:

It’s ideal for nervous patients

Traditional gum disease treatment can be pretty invasive, which isn’t nice for anyone but can be especially frightening if you’re fearful or anxious at the dentist. Laser gum treatment is incredibly precise, and involves much less invasive techniques, not only making it quicker and less uncomfortable but also significantly reducing the recovery time.

Less time in recovery

Gum disease treatment can be pretty serious, and more invasive techniques can take several weeks to heal. Laser gum dentistry on the other hand does not, it usually leads to much less bleeding and a much more comfortable (and quicker) recovery time.

Less risk of infection

Typically, gum disease is treated using tools such as drills, and invasive techniques that leave you more exposed to infection during the healing process. With laser dentistry, there’s no need for cutting or stitches, and less chance of an infection occurring as a result.

Although laser gum treatment is generally more of an investment than traditional periodontal treatments, the range of benefits generally offsets this expense and can help to make your treatment much more straightforward.
