See How Laser Therapy Treats Gum Disease
Did you know sophisticated lasers help dentists more effectively treat gum disease?
No, not like Dr. Evil…the type of laser therapy going on at our Somerset NJ dentist office is a modern way to treat gum disease.
Periodontal or gum disease occurs when bacteria gets below the gum line between the gum and the individual tooth. To learn more about how sophisticated lasers are used in the treatment of gum disease, check out this video:
Did you know that three out of four Americans have some form of periodontal (gum) disease and only 3 out of 100 will ever get treated before its too late?

Gum disease is a silent, chronic, painless and communicable bacterial infection that often goes undetected or ignored until severe gum and bone destruction is unbearable and no longer able to be ignored.
Left untreated, gum disease can cause tooth loss and traditional treatment can cause pain or discomfort.

The latest conservative gum therapy uses a laser that gently disinfects and evaporates diseased tissues from around the tooth and inside the gum pocket. Laser gum therapy treatment interrupts the bacterial destruction of the tissues and bone, giving the gum pocket a chance to heal.
How Long Does Laser Gum Therapy Take?
Generally anywhere from a couple to several appointments are needed – depending on the severity of the gum disease infection – to allow the gum pocket to become disease-free and allow tissues to reattach to the pocket to a normal or near-normal depth.
Is Laser Gum Therapy More Painful Than Traditional Gum Disease Treatment?
Not at all, we’re lucky to enjoy the type of modern dentistry our parents and grandparents never had the luxury of experiencing. Laser gum therapy is gentle, and less painful than traditional treatment methods of deep scaling and root planing.
Laser gum therapy even allows a quicker post-treatment recovery time.
