Gum Disease Laser Therapy

Dr. Ronny Taschner and Dr. Jennifer Taschner provide the latest technology available for periodontal therapy. Laser treatment is one of the newer technologies available at Taschner Periodontics. There can be  numerous advantages to using laser therapy when compared to traditional gum surgery. However there are advantages and disadvantages to each approach. Drs. Ronny and Jennifer Taschner will determine the best course of treatment for you and will discuss the advantages, disadvantages, risks and benefits involved with any type of treatment that may help you.

Benefits:

Comfort:

With laser treatment, there is reduced or no bleeding, minimized swelling, and no drill noise or vibration. The stress and anxiety often associated with dental work is therefore eliminated when you experience quick, effective, and essentially pain-free laser procedures. Also, postoperative sensitivity is greatly limited by laser periodontal therapy, and recovery time is much quicker than with traditional methods. In fact, due to the less-invasive nature of the laser technique, the mouth begins to heal immediately after work is completed!

Reduced Risk of Infection:

The laser’s high-energy light beam acts as a sterilizer on the area it is working, thereby reducing the risk of bacterial infections and relapses.

Anesthesia for Laser Therapy:

Because laser dentistry is less invasive than traditional periodontal surgery, usually less local anesthetic is required. Laser treatment minimizes the amount of  local anesthesia needed and therefore reduces and possible side affects. 

Uses:

Dr. Ronny Taschner and Dr. Jennifer Taschner can perform a variety of procedures using laser technology. The Doctors are also able to use laser technology as a way to regenerate healthy gums and remove diseases areas in painlessly. This method also encourages healthy gum to regenerate and attach to the teeth. There is a much lower chance of gum disease returning when laser therapy is used as opposed to traditional surgery.
