Best Candidates for Laser Gum Treatment
There are lots of cases in which a laser gum treatment could be used. If you have gum disease, the laser may be employed to remove plaque and bacteria that are deep in the pockets of your gum tissue. For a biopsy, the laser is used to cut out tissue in the needed region. Laser gum therapy may also be helpful if you want to eliminate excess gum tissue and also increase the visible enamel for a more attractive smile. When compared to classic surgery on the gums, laser gum treatments tend to be less invasive and do not need stitches. You will require less or no anesthesia during this treatment and have a shorter healing time.
What to Expect with Laser Gum Treatment
Done in our office, a laser gum treatment generally only needs a local anesthetic. However, other sedation choices could be available if you have fears or anxiety. Before your treatment, Dr. Tatevossian will go over exactly what you should expect during the procedure, whether you're having a treatment for periodontal disease, getting an oral biopsy, having crown lengthening, or undergoing aesthetic gum contouring. The laser reduces bleeding and often eliminates the need for stitches.
Laser Gum Treatment Recovery
Dr. Tatevossian will give you post-treatment care instructions before you're discharged to leave. Since your mouth may be tender or swollen, you might want to stick to a soft food or liquid diet for a couple of days. For gum disease therapy or crown lengthening, you may want to make another appointment so Dr. Tatevossian can evaluate your recovery and determine if a second treatment is needed. If a biopsy was performed, you may have to return to our office to receive your results. If oral cancer is discovered, Dr. Tatevossian will go over your treatment choices and next steps.
Laser Gum Treatment Insurance Coverage
As soon as your laser gum plan is created, Dr. Tatevossian will go over the costs. King House Dental Group takes many payments, including medical financing. For those who have dental insurance, we will contact your provider to determine your coverage and personal expenses.
