Gum Laser Treatment

At our practice, we are committed to staying on the cutting edge of periodontal techniques and technology. One of the advanced treatments we offer is gum laser treatment. This treatment uses dental lasers to treat gum disease and improve your oral health. A laser delivers energy in the form of light, using this energy to cut or vaporize the tissues it comes in contact with. Our periodontist may use the laser to:

  • Complete crown lengthening for cosmetic or restorative purposes
  • Remove diseased, infected gum tissues
  • Eliminate bacteria and infection
  • Adjust the gum line

Laser treatment holds many benefits over traditional treatment methods. With dental lasers, your treatment is certain to be fast and comfortable. Using the laser allows Dr. Andrew C. Dreyer to provide your treatment more quickly and accurately; the laser can treat the targeted area without affecting nearby healthy tissues. In addition, the laser results in minimal discomfort – with some laser gum treatments, no numbing anesthetic is needed. Gum laser treatment in Bakersfield, California, also helps to minimize bleeding, lower your risk for infection after the treatment, and speed your healing process.
