Laser Bone Regeneration

The laser periodontal therapy utilised at our clinic, known as the Al-Fa Technique, has paved the way forward for bone regeneration.

Our Laser Bone Regeneration Treatments

Most traditional gum treatments are predominantly centralised around the elimination of bacterial infection. The post-operative result of this type of therapy often depicts gum recession with its associated bone loss. The loss is irreversible and involves much aesthetic oral plastic surgery to correct. Laser surgery, on the other hand, eradicates these types of post-operative sub-standard aesthetic results. Areas treated with lasers eliminate the infection in such a way as to ‘sterilise’ the area being treated. Our periodontists are fully trained in using laser technology. The probability of the infection recurring is minimal compared to manual debridement of the infection using more traditional techniques.

Why Choose Laser Periodontal Therapy?

Unlike traditional gum disease treatments which can take several separate appointments, laser bone regeneration can be done in one session. These sessions usually take a couple of hours, but you’re unlikely to need to have it again afterwards, although you may need to keep up with ongoing routine appointments to maintain your healthy gums.

It’s a particularly good option for those patients who are nervous or fearful of the dentist, as it’s much less invasive. We will always ensure that your mouth has been properly prepared before we proceed with the laser treatment, which means numbing the gums so that you’re comfortable throughout. It’s likely that you’ll feel some discomfort after the treatment, but this shouldn’t last for very long.

Why Choose Al-FaPerio Clinic?

Dr Rana Al-Falaki has created an innovative technique that enables her to elicit a better than expected bone re-generation result.

She has found that her technique encourages bone cells to re-generate, leading to re-growth of the bone in the treated area. Hence, laser treatments can accommodate both vertical and horizontal bone loss situations.

It is particularly good at treating furcation areas (the space between the roots on the same tooth) exceptionally well. These areas are associated with a combination of both horizontal and vertical deterioration. Furcation areas are often the nemesis of traditional periodontal surgery.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take to recover from laser bone regeneration?

One of the main benefits of this type of innovative treatment is that it only has a short recovery time compared to more invasive gum disease treatments. Typically, you can expect to go back to your day-to-day life after just 24 hours, unlike the several weeks it can take to recover from more traditional types of gum disease treatment.

The main reason for this difference in recovery time is that laser bone regeneration requires no cutting, incisions or bleeding. So, you can go back to eating and drinking how you like soon after.

Does gum lasering hurt?

No. We will always ensure that your mouth has been properly prepared before we proceed with the laser treatment, which means numbing the gums so that you’re comfortable throughout. It’s likely that you’ll feel some discomfort after the treatment, but this shouldn’t last for very long.
