What is the laser periodontal treatment?

Laser periodontal treatment is a form of laser therapy for treating gum disease. Laser periodontal surgery uses a dental laser to remove bacteria and diseased tissue from the gums, tooth sockets, and the rest of the mouth.

Laser periodontal surgery can be used to treat both gingivitis (early stage gum disease) and periodontitis (advanced gum disease). Laser periodontal treatment has many benefits over traditional methods of treating gum disease.

What are the benefits of a periodontal laser treatment?

  • Less discomfort
  • Quick therapy - Usually done in one session
  • Fast recovery time
  • Safe treatment
  • Pain-free
  • Long-lasting results

What to expect during the treatment?

During your treatment, your dentist will use a laser to remove the inflamed gum tissue from your tooth's root. Next step is removing plaque build-up and tartar around the gum area.

After the laser therapy, the recovery process starts and your mouth will need time to heal.

Why choose our laser periodontal treatment?

Our renowned team at Sunnyvale dental offices will personalize every treatment plan to cater to your needs. Besides lasers being a great choice for minimizing pain and speeding up the healing process, such treatments can also target bacterial infections and remove precise amounts of gum tissue.

FAQs

What is laser periodontal therapy?

Laser periodontal surgery uses a dental laser to remove bacteria and diseased tissue from the gums, tooth sockets, and the rest of the mouth. If you are looking for a laser therapy for periodontal disease, book an appointment with Trident.

Is laser periodontal therapy painful?

Not really! In fact, many patients report that periodontal laser therapy is less painful than traditional gum line surgery.

Does laser periodontal therapy work?

Laser periodontal treatment is a safe, comfortable alternative to traditional gum disease treatments. Lasers are a precise and accurate tool that can remove infected tissue and bacteria without causing discomfort.

And unlike other periodontal treatments, laser therapy doesn’t require you to go under anesthesia or take any pain medication after the procedure. You don’t even need stitches!

How long does laser periodontal therapy take?

On average, laser periodontal therapy takes about one hour per session. However, the exact length of time varies depending on how extensive your treatment needs to be.

What do gums look like after laser treatment?

If you're looking for relief from pain and discomfort caused by periodontal disease or gum recession, then your gums may actually be noticeably better-looking than before (because they won't be inflamed anymore).

How much does laser periodontal therapy cost?

Laser periodontal therapy is a less invasive way to treat gum disease than traditional surgery and typically results in faster healing. Laser gum treatments can cost between $400 and $3,000, but there are some factors that can affect the final price. Your dentist will be able to provide you with a more precise estimate of the cost for your particular case.

Instructions

Pre-treatment instructions

It is CRITICAL to follow all the instructions to prepare for surgery. Your procedure WILL NOT be carried out, if these precautions are not followed. We reserve the right to cancel or postpone surgery if any of the instructions are not followed. If you have any questions, please call or text (408) 505-1777. Notify our practice of any changes to your health before your procedure.

Activity

  • Get full night’s sleep before and after the treatment. The human body recovers the most when at rest. Most of the "repairs" are done while a person is asleep, so make sure you get a lot of sleep to make the recovery from the procedure as smooth as possible.

Medication

  • If you are taking any medication, please inform your dentist immediately. If you take prescription medication, take them at your normal times unless otherwise directed by your physician or dentist. DO NOT stop taking any prescription medication unless directed by your physician and dentist.

Oral hygiene

  • Please brush your teeth and rinse thoroughly before treatment.

Driver/Caretaker

  • Your driver/caretaker MUST be present at the time of sedation and must be able to stay with you during the procedure, take you back home and stay with you. We will discuss the post-operative instructions with you and your driver/caretaker prior to sedation process.

Clothing

  • Wear loose, comfortable clothing for the procedure. Your clothes may stain during the procedure so dress accordingly. Wear Flat-soled shoes that support your ankle.
  • Do not wear cosmetics around the mouth, as they may be inadvertently transferred in the surgical area during the procedure. Prior to surgery, your nose, cheeks, lips, and chin will be disinfected.

Time

  • Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your appointment.
  • Time is set aside specifically to place your procedure. We have reserved enough time to ensure that the operation proceeds smoothly so that the outcome will be successful. If you feel you will have any problem keeping your appointment, please give us as much notice as possible so that we might utilize your time for another patient.
Post-treatment instructions

Activity

  • Reduce activity for several hours following the surgery.
  • It is OK to spit, rinse, and wash your mouth today. Rinse as directed with Peridex or Periogard morning and night. In between, it is OK to rinse gently every 3 hours with warm salt water. Do not chew on the side of your mouth which has been treated.
  • Do not apply excessive tongue or cheek pressure to the surgical area.

Diet

  • Do not eat spicy or excessively hot foods.
  • The first three days following Laser Therapy, follow only a liquid like diet to allow healing. Anything that could be put into a blender to drink is ideal. The purpose of this is to protect the clot that is acting as a band-aid between the gum and the teeth. Do not drink through a straw, as this creates a vacuum in your mouth that can disturb the band-aid. Take daily vitamins.
  • Next four days after treatment, foods with a mushy consistency such as those listed below are recommended.
  • Starting seven to ten days after treatment, mushy, soft foods are allowable. Soft foods have the consistency of pasta, fish, chicken or steamed vegetables. You may then gradually add back your regular diet choices.
  • It is very important to maintain a good food and fluid intake. Try to eat soft but nutritious food such as eggs, yogurt, cottage cheese, ice cream, etc., until you can comfortably return to a normal diet.
  • Please remember that even after ten days, healing is not complete. The first month following treatment you should continue to make smart food choices. Softer foods are better.

Oral hygiene

  • Try to keep your mouth as clean as possible in order to help the healing process. You may brush and floss in areas of your mouth that we DID NOT do surgery.

DO NOT BRUSH AND FLOSS THE SURGICAL AREA FOR 2 WEEKS AFTER THE LAST SURGICAL VISIT! Only RINSE!

Bleeding

  • Some oozing of blood may occur. You may place pressure on these areas with a wet tea bag. If you feel you are having excessive bleeding, please call the office.

Swelling

  • Swelling may possibly occur. You may place ice on the outside of your face for 20 minutes each hour. Do not use an ice pack after the first day.

Medication

  • To control discomfort, take pain medication as recommended by your dentist. If antibiotics are prescribed, continue to take them for the indicated length of time, even if all symptoms and signs of infection are gone.
  • If you were not prescribed a pain medication by us but are experiencing pain after your appointment, we recommend taking over the counter pain medication. We recommend ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil, Nuprin) or naproxen (Aleve, Anaprox). Should you experience discomfort that cannot be controlled with pain medications or should swelling develop, please call our office.
Call your specialist if...
  • You develop an allergic reaction (rash, itching etc.)
  • You develop a fever
  • You develop a swelling
  • You notice a pimple forming on your gums
  • You have difficulty breathing or swallowing
  • Pain increases over time and or becomes severe
