Gum Surgery the Gentle Way

Laser Gum Therapy Saves Lives

Severe gum disease can lead to tooth and bone loss, but that’s not even the scariest part about it. Did you know that the bacteria behind gum disease can spread throughout the body and is connected to heart disease, diabetes, and strokes? Many Americans don’t know they have gum disease, and if they do, they may not understand how significant of an effect it can have on their lives. Many are also afraid of invasive treatment and dental anxiety keeps them from receiving the care their smile and their overall health need. All of that is about to change with the power of laser gum disease treatments in Tolland, CT.

In the past, the only way to treat advanced gum disease was osseous surgery. Although effective, this treatment left patients with long and painful recovery times. With modern advancements in dental technology and researched techniques, Dr. Neil Hoss has a more minimally invasive and effective way to fight gum disease right here in our Tolland, CT office. Using laser gum disease treatment Dr. Hoss and our team are able to see excellent results and provide a better overall experience to our patients.

Minimally Invasive = Less Pain & Faster Recovery

Laser gum surgery is less invasive, which means first and foremost that no scalpels or sutures are used. Our laser-based treatment, which works using highly focused beams of light and water, can also be done more quickly, with minimal discomfort, swelling, or bleeding, and even shorter recovery times. The laser will both remove diseased tissue and remove disease from tissue while leaving the healthy tissue itself intact. This minimizes the need to use antibiotics to fight infection. Because it’s incredibly precise, the laser also enables Dr. Hoss to preserve the healthy tissue surrounding the diseased areas. In many cases, laser gum surgery alternatives have also been found more effective in encouraging faster healing and sealing the treatment site from infection. Schedule a consultation with him and find out how this advanced technology can transform your gum health and protect your overall systemic health.
