It is critical to have gum disease treatment to save your teeth and preserve the integrity of your facial structure from bone deterioration. Dr. Michael Seda recommends laser gum surgery for patients in need of gum disease treatment.

Benefits of Laser Gum Surgery
With laser gum surgery, there is reduced inflammation and minimal bleeding. Dr. Seda is able to control the bleeding with the laser, the PerioLase® MVP-7™. The laser will be used to eradicate the bacteria in your mouth which can eliminate up to 90% of your gum inflammation after one gum disease treatment.
Laser gum surgery encourages faster healing and less down time. This gum disease treatment does not require that any healthy tissue be cut or sutured, resulting in less discomfort and healing time.
Laser gum surgery is a successful gum disease treatment for periodontitis. Not only that, it is the only gum disease treatment that is proven to regenerate bone. When Dr. Seda uses the laser to stimulate the bone, tooth root, and gum tissue, one of the effects of this stimulation is bone regeneration. Laser gum surgery can reverse the effects of periodontal disease.
With traditional gum disease treatment, healthy tissue must be cut to allow access to the area being treated. This method can actually cause gum recession, which is not the case with laser gum surgery. Using laser gum surgery as your gum disease treatment requires no cutting or sutures, leaving healthy gum tissue intact.
