Gum Disease Laser Therapy



Dr. Russ and Dr. Birnbach, cosmetic dentists in Boulder, CO, are proud to offer the latest technology available for periodontal therapy: laser dental treatments. There are numerous advantages to using laser therapy as opposed to the traditional methods requiring a scalpel and sutures.

Benefits of Laser Therapy:


With laser treatment, there is reduced or no bleeding, minimized swelling, no charring, and no drill noise or vibration. The stress and anxiety often associated with dental work are therefore eliminated when you experience quick, effective, and essentially pain-free laser procedures. Also, postoperative sensitivity is greatly limited by laser dentistry, 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! This makes dental restoration using lasers a much more comfortable experience for patients.

Reduced Risk of Infection:

The laser’s high-energy light beam acts as a sterilizer in the area it is working, thereby reducing the risk of bacterial infections and relapses. This makes the need for gum infection treatments less likely.

Anesthesia Limited or Eliminated:

Because laser dentistry is virtually painless, no longer will you suffer with fear of injections and numbness. Often, only a light anesthetic spray is required. Laser treatment eliminates the complications and cost associated with anesthesia.

Uses for Laser Periodontal Surgery:

Drs. Russ and Birnbach can use laser technology as a way to regenerate healthy gums and remove diseased areas in a virtually painless way. 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. With this gum infection treatment, your smile will look better and you can feel confident that your gum health is being taken care of in the best way possible!
