Scaling and Root Planing
A traditional method for treating gum disease is scaling and root planing. Essentially, this periodontal treatment deep cleans the tooth roots beneath the gum line.
Laser Gum Surgery
Also known as pocket depth reduction, laser gum surgery is the preferred treatment method for cases of gum disease that are moderate to advanced.
With gingivectomy, the inflamed and overgrown gum tissue is removed. With this treatment, pocket depths are reduced so that bacteria and plaque have less chance to form. This treatment is performed with laser precision, which results in superior infection control and reduced bleeding and discomfort.
