What is laser gum treatment?
Maintaining the health of your gums is very important because conditions like periodontal disease and oral cancer can affect your dental and overall health without proper treatment. At 286 Madison Dental in New York, NY, we use laser technology (dental laser therapy) to treat a wide array of gum (periodontal) conditions. Our high-powered laser helps our team perform a more effective treatment of periodontitis (the advanced stage of gum disease). Our team also uses laser technology to complete oral pathologies that detect cancer and pre-cancer of the mouth. Our dental team can also use laser gum treatments in some cosmetic dentistry procedures that will help sculpt the gums or correct the appearance of a smile that looks "gummy." Please schedule a consultation with our team to learn more about laser gum treatments at our New York City office.
Who is the best candidate for laser gum treatment?
There are several cases in which laser gum treatment could be performed. If you have periodontal disease, we can utilize the laser to remove bacteria and plaque deep in your gums' pockets. We use the laser for biopsies to remove tissue from the needed region. Laser gum therapy can also be helpful if you would like to eliminate excess gum tissue and lengthen the visible enamel for a more attractive smile. Compared to traditional gum surgery, laser gum treatments tend to be less invasive and don't require sutures. You may need less, or no, anesthesia during this gum treatment and have a shorter healing time.

What should you expect during dental laser therapy treatment?
Laser gum treatment at 286 Madison Dental is an in-office procedure that typically only requires a local anesthetic. Nevertheless, additional sedation choices could be available if you have dental fears. Before your treatment, our team will discuss exactly what you should expect during the procedure, whether you are treating periodontal disease, getting a dental biopsy, having crown lengthening, or undergoing cosmetic gum contouring. The laser reduces bleeding and often eliminates the need for stitches.
What is recovery like following laser gum therapy?
Our team will give you post-treatment care instructions before you're discharged to leave. Considering that your gums may be sore or swollen, you may stick to a liquid or soft food diet for a few days. For periodontal disease therapy or crown lengthening, you might want to schedule a follow-up appointment so our team can assess your healing and decide if a second treatment is needed. You may need to return to our office to receive your results when undergoing a biopsy. If oral cancer is diagnosed, our team will discuss your treatment options and what to do next.
