Laser Gum Treatment

At She’s Apples Dentistry, we’re dedicated to making sure your entire family shows off healthy, beautiful smiles. It’s essential to keep your teeth vital, but it’s equally crucial to make sure that your gums stay in great shape. If your gums require additional work, we have the technology and skills to ensure that you receive the care you need.

At our practice, we are proud to feature the diode laser, which utilises powerful semiconductor technology to address an array of gum issues. Precise and conservative, the laser provides an excellent alternative to invasive surgical treatment.

Here are some of the ways that laser gum treatment can help you smile brighter:

Gummy Smiles

The concept of smile design is used when planning the reshaping of gums around the front teeth to increase the length of the teeth and to treat gummy smiles where too much gum is shown when smiling. Laser gingivectomy generally results in reduced pain and bleeding as compared with other surgical methods.

Gum Disease

Diode lasers can be used to reduce bacteria in the periodontal pocket by destroying the bacterial cell membrane. Used in conjunction with a comprehensive hygiene protocol, laser treatment appears to reduce bleeding and inflammation in the gingival tissues. The laser also can be used to remove diseased gum tissue.

Restorative Dentistry

During restorative dentistry, the diode laser is used to remove excess gum tissue and to reduce bleeding so that a good impression of a crown preparation can be taken.
