Renew Your Oral Health With Laser Gum Treatment

At Ruby Dental, we have invested in the technology and treatment techniques that give the best possible patient experience. If you show signs of gum disease during your exam, Dr. Ruby will discuss the various methods available to restore your smile.

One of the most advanced ways we can treat your condition is with the Biolase laser. Dr. Ruby will gently remove the infected gum tissue using this special laser. You can expect many unique benefits:

  • Preserves Your Smile – You maintain more of your healthy gums, since the laser is more precise than traditional techniques.
  • Minimally Invasive – Since we don’t use incisions or sutures, the procedure is less invasive and less uncomfortable.
  • Quicker Recovery – The laser encourages the healing process in your gums. You also have a reduced risk for post-operative infection.
  • Less Painful – There is less discomfort during and after the procedure, especially compared to traditional methods.
  • Restored Gum Health – The laser also helps your gums reattach to your teeth, so you can expect faster healing after treatment.

Of course, a laser is only one way that we treat infected gums. For the early stages of gum disease, we’ll perform a deep cleaning procedure that eliminates the tartar in and around your gumline. We also have PerioProtect™, which delivers an antibiotic medication to your gums using custom trays. Dr. Ruby will explain which treatment is right for you during your appointment.
