Have you been experiencing unpleasant oral symptoms such as bleeding gums, tooth sensitivity and embarrassing bad breath? These are all signs of a serious condition called periodontal disease (also known as gum disease). Thankfully, you can now receive laser gum therapy in Largo, FL, as an alternative to traditional gum disease therapy. Since January 16th is National Without a Scalpel Day, it is the perfect time to schedule your laser-based appointment. Here are the top three reasons to choose laser gum treatments for your oral health:

  1. Minimal Discomfort

Laser dentistry is ideal for patients who experience moderate to severe dental anxiety. Lasers do not cause friction, excess heat or vibrations during treatment, which are the three main culprits behind dental treatment pain. Lasers can treat a variety of dental needs while minimizing your discomfort, including:

  • Gum disease
  • Cavity fillings
  • Orthodontics
  • Gummy smile augmentation
  • Receding gums

If you decide to receive laser gum therapy in Largo, FL, you will have a reduced risk of experiencing complications such as infection, swelling and bleeding after your treatment.

  1. Quicker Treatment and Recovery Time

We understand that no one wants to sit in a dental treatment chair longer than they absolutely have to. Thankfully, laser dentistry can significantly reduce treatment time when compared to traditional treatment methods, and it can also speed up your recovery time.

  1. No Stitches or Scalpels

Perhaps the best part about laser-based treatments is the fact that no scalpels or stitches are required during treatment. This means you don’t need to worry about dealing with unsightly (and uncomfortable) stitches while you focus on recovering.
