More About Laser Gum Treatments
There are alternatives to gum disease without damaging healthy gums or surgery!
Covered by most insurance plans. No scalpel. No stitches. In just a few hours, you can help save your gums.
Why Is Laser Periodontal Therapy (LPT) Better?
- LPT does not involve cutting or suturing. It’s like erasing a blackboard.
- There’s much less discomfort with Laser Periodontal Therapy than with standard surgery both during and after the procedure.
- It takes less time than traditional surgery: two 2-hour visits and two follow up visits. Traditional surgery requires four sessions of about one hour each, with subsequent visits for suture removal and additional check-ups.
- LPT gives better, longer-lasting results. In fact, 98% of LPT-treated patients remain stable after five years, while only 5% reportedly remain stable after surgery.
