One of the most useful changes in dentistry has been the introduction of the laser. Because lasers can minimize the impact on the body and issues such as bleeding, they have proven to be very effective in the treatment of gum disease. At Fircrest Family Dental, our dentist and team use LANAP® Perio Laser therapy in Fircrest, Washington, as a means of addressing problems with your gums.
First, Dr. Brian Han will use a laser to remove diseased gum tissue and the bacteria in your gums. Following that, Dr. Han will clean the plaque and tartar from the roots of your teeth. The laser is then used again to sterilize the area and clean the periodontal pocket. The gum tissue is then placed over the area.
Why should you talk to Dr. Han about this treatment option? It has a number of advantages. There is no cutting involved in the procedure, and sutures are not needed for your gums to heal. Because the impact is minimal, the treatment takes less time and is more comfortable than other types of periodontal procedures. Your recovery time is shorter, and the entire process is very safe and does not result in major tissue losses.
