What is laser gum therapy?

Laser gum therapy is a treatment completed using a dental laser. Our skilled dentists, Dr. Luth and Dr. Heideman, can provide laser treatment to reduce gum pockets caused by gum disease bacteria. Laser gum therapy can also help to improve your oral health by eliminating disease-causing bacteria. Periodontal disease is caused by a buildup of bacteria, plaque, and tartar in the spaces between the gum tissue and tooth structure. As the condition progresses, the spaces or “pockets” between the teeth and the gums grow larger. When not properly treated, periodontal disease can lead to loose teeth, receding gum tissue, and even tooth loss. A safe, effective, and comfortable treatment option available in Las Vegas, Nevada, laser gum therapy can be a good alternative to traditional gum surgery in certain situations.

Do I need laser gum therapy?

If your smile is affected by periodontal disease, laser gum therapy may be the solution you need to restore your oral health. Dr. Luth and Dr. Heideman will help you decide whether laser gum therapy is a good choice for your smile. We can also use our soft tissue laser to reduce the size of overgrown gums caused by orthodontic treatment.
