The Laser Periodontal Therapy Treatment procedure for diseased gum tissue has removed the need for scalpels and sutures. The entire treatment is done by utilizing a tiny, hair thin, laser filament on the gum line.
This laser treatment works extremely well in treating diseased gum tissue; even in advanced disease gum states involving loose teeth (which in the past would have required removal). The most impressive feature of the Laser Periodontal Therapy Treatment is how comfortable a patient feels the next day. This is mainly due to the fact that the treated area is left sterile and is completed in a closed technique, excluding scalpels or sutures. In addition, treatments are often done in one visit.
