What Is Laser Gum Treatment?

Considering getting laser gum treatment in Dubai to improve the health of your gums? Laser Dentistry involves the use of precision instruments that emit thin, concentrated beams of light energy to aid in the correction of various dental issues. Laser dentistry offers more comfortable treatment options for a number of dental procedures when compared to dental drills and other non-laser tools. Lasers can ablate, cut and remove disease tissues, coagulate blood vessels, kill harmful bacteria and sterilise the area. Connect with us at Dr. Paul’s, the specialists in laser gum surgery in Dubai.

What are the Procedures Involved?

Laser Gum Treatment

What are the Procedures Involved?

Laser Gum Treatment is a precise, ingenious treatment that uses beams of light to kill bacteria that cause periodontal diseases. It helps in decreasing the count of harmful bacteria and bio-stimulation for tissue healing.

At Dr. Paul’s Dental Clinic, Dubai, we employ Soft Tissue Lasers as they are ideal for working on the gums. They cut into soft tissue and seal the exposed blood vessels at the same time which explains why there is minimal bleeding during laser dentistry and why healing is faster than conventional methods.

Crown Lengthening 

This is the process of reshaping gum tissue and bone for enhanced tooth structure which further helps when placings for any teeth restoration is needed.

Frenectomy

A frenectomy involves removing one or more frenum (connective tissue membrane that restricts the movement) and can be performed inside the middle of the upper lip and lower lip (labial frenectomy) or under the tongue (lingual frenectomy.) Frenectomies are very common and are performed on infants, children and adults.

Gingivectomy

Here, the Gingiva (or gum) tissue is re-contoured in order to improve the overall aesthetics of the patient’s smile and also improve the health of the gums.

Laser Gum Depigmentation

Melanocytes are cells that produce melanin which are pigments that cause light or dark brown spots on the gums. To remove this pigmented layer, laser is often used on the melanocytes which reduces the melanin in the gum tissue leaving a lighter pink uniform colour.

Oral Fibroma

An Oral fibroma is a common benign mass of connective tissue brought about by a trauma or localized irritation on the lip, cheek or tongue. They can usually be removed via Laser treatment with the procedure often taking less than 5 minutes. Two weeks after the treatment, the patient must come for a routine check-up to evaluate the condition.

Laser therapy is either done as a standalone treatment or in conjunction with other treatment procedures. The ability to adjust the wavelength and frequency of the laser enables the dentist to provide individualized treatment considering the severity of your periodontal disease. Laser therapy offers better clinical outcomes in a shorter duration of time by minimizing bacterial infection and eliminating the need for an additional invasive procedure. It is better tolerated and widely accepted by patients and is a leading-edge treatment option.

Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure

Ever since the FDA approved LANAP in the year 2004, Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure has increased in popularity. As studies continue to demonstrate the effectiveness of LANAP, it has very minimal side effects and low risk of complications associated with the procedure.

It is a less invasive procedure to treat gum disease than traditional gum surgery. LANAP uses laser technology to gently remove disease and harmful bacteria from the gums while maintaining the height of the gum tissue surrounding teeth. After cleaning the pocket, the laser is used to compress gum tissue against the root surface and the pocket is sealed with a fibrin clot, and not with sutures. Patients can expect a recovery time of 24 hours with minimal discomfort. It is the only procedure that actually enables regeneration of bone supporting the teeth.

Laser Gum Depigmentation (Gum Bleaching)

Using laser light, a thin top layer of the gum tissue is vaporized, eliminating the cells that produce melanin. When new tissue is created during the healing process, it tends to be pink rather than brown.

Gummy Smile Correction by Laser Gum Recontouring

This procedure is minimally invasive and virtually pain-free as compared to traditional gum contouring. As the laser cuts away excess gum tissue, it simultaneously cauterizes the tissue to minimise bleeding.

The expert gum specialist at Dr. Paul’s Dental Clinic provides you with one in Dubai. No matter what the extent or stage of your gum problem, our experienced periodontist will create a treatment plan that is best suited for your condition.

Patient Stories

FAQs

  • Can food impaction cause gum disease?

    Yes, food impaction between adjacent teeth can cause pain, gingivitis, gingival abscess, periodontitis alveolar bone resorption, bad breath, and tooth decay. Improper flossing and overzealous use of toothpicks can worsen the condition. Food impaction may be due to misaligned teeth, spacing between teeth, or opposing plunger cusp. Whatever the reason maybe it needs to be managed at the earliest. Your dentist can enlighten you about the usage of dental floss and interproximal brushes.

  • Can children develop periodontal disease?

    Although rare, children and young adults can develop periodontal disease. Make sure that your child is maintaining a proper home care routine and has regular meetings (at least twice a year) with the dentist for a check-up and professional scaling. Watch out for signs such as gum bleeding, red swollen puffy gums, and persistent bad breath. Research supports the role of genetics in the development of periodontal disease as well.

  • Who is an ideal candidate for cosmetic gum surgery?

    Like any other cosmetic dental treatments, if you are unhappy with your smile due to excessive gum display, pulled back gums, dark gums, or uneven gumline then you may consider cosmetic gum surgery. These treatments do not have any effect on the functionality but can bring a world of a difference in your smile if performed correctly. To begin with, you must have good general and oral health. Depending on your condition, you may require other dental work prior to the surgery. Meet our gum specialist to know more.

  • Are diabetic people more susceptible to periodontal diseases?

    People who do not have their blood sugar levels under control are at more risk of developing periodontal disease. Gum disease is considered one of the complications of diabetes. Periodontal abscess, rapid bone loss, severe gingival inflammation, and deep periodontal pockets are generally observed. This relationship goes both ways, severe periodontal disease puts the diabetic population at the risk of developing complications as it is difficult for them to keep their blood sugar levels under control

  • How do chemical mouthwashes help to control harmful bacteria?

    Chemical mouthwashes contain several active ingredients for plaque control. Shreds of evidence suggest that mouthwashes containing Chlorhexidine (CHX) are the best choice to kill harmful bacteria. However, using a mouthwash is not a substitute for brushing and flossing. It is necessary to swish the mouthwash for 30 secs to 1 min before spitting out. Mouthwashes have several cosmetic and therapeutic benefits like reducing the bacterial load, plaque control, freshening the breath, managing gingivitis, providing fluorides for healthier enamel and teeth whitening.

  • Is it possible for the pigmentation of the gums to come back after depigmentation treatment?

    Yes, it is possible, the pigmentation can return. However, you can always safely get retreatment.

  • How does laser gum depigmentation work?

    When laser light is applied, the melanin absorbs it. It then heats up and gets damaged. This damaged layer is naturally removed by the body, allowing the pink gums to be visible. This may require multiple sessions depending on the depth of the pigmented layer. The technique is minimally invasive and quicker to heal.

  • My gums are bleeding, I am pregnant. Should I be worried?

    Due to hormonal changes during pregnancy inflammation and bleeding gums may occur. This is usually temporary. If your homecare is up to the mark, you have been consistently visiting your dentist and have been doing routine oral prophylaxis, there is nothing much to worry about. Nevertheless, a prenatal checkup with your periodontist should be practiced.

  • How often should I replace my toothbrush?

    You should ideally replace your toothbrush every 3 months. If the bristles are frayed you should change it even before the 3-month mark.

  • Why do I experience teeth sensitivity after scaling?

    After deep scaling, it takes about 2 weeks for complete healing. Sensitivity after thorough deep scaling is normal and will resolve with time. This may be because of the removal of tartar and gum recession. Using a desensitizing toothpaste should help. Avoid acidic food and extremely cold or hot food. Maintain a proper homecare routine. If your sensitivity issue does not resolve in a couple of weeks, consult your gum specialist.
