Explore Laser Gum Treatment
The health of your gums and soft tissues is extremely important, as problems such as gum disease and oral cancer can impact both your dental and overall wellness if left untreated. At Trusted Dental Care in Wylie, TX, we utilize advanced BIOLASE® laser technology to effectively treat a wide array of gum (periodontal) concerns with a minimally invasive approach to care. Our high-powered soft tissue diode laser helps Dr. Fesaha Gebrehiwot precisely perform gum disease treatments to target areas of disease deep below the surface of the gums. Dr. G. also uses laser technology to complete oral biopsies of potentially cancerous and pre-cancerous areas in the mouth. Laser gum treatments may be performed in certain cosmetic procedures that aid in sculpting the gums or decreasing the look of a "gummy" smile. To learn if laser gum treatment might be right for your periodontal needs, we invite you to schedule a visit with Dr. G. at our modern office in Wylie, TX.

What Makes a Good Candidate?
There are several cases in which a laser gum treatment may be ideal. If you have gum disease, the laser can be implemented to eliminate bacteria and infected tissues that are deep inside the pockets of the gums. During a biopsy, the laser is used to excise tissue from a suspicious area for further evaluation. Laser gum treatment can also be a great option if you want to eliminate overgrown gum tissue and also lengthen the appearance of short teeth for a more attractive smile. In comparison to traditional gum surgery, laser gum treatments are much less invasive and do not require incisions or sutures. In addition, you may need little or no anesthesia with this approach and can often enjoy a shorter recovery time.
What to Expect During Care
Performed in our modern office, laser gum treatment often reduces or eliminates the need for local anesthetic. However, we are committed to keeping you comfortable and will take steps to ensure a relaxing experience. Before your procedure, Dr. G. will go over precisely what you can expect during the process, whether you are being treated for gum disease, obtaining an oral biopsy, having your gum smile transformed, or undergoing cosmetic gum sculpting. The laser minimizes bleeding and post-operative discomfort and initiates a faster healing response.
After Laser Gum Treatment
Dr. G. will provide you with recovery instructions once your laser care is complete. Since your mouth may be slightly inflamed or tender, you may choose to follow a soft food diet for a couple of days. For gum disease treatment or crown lengthening, you might need to schedule a follow-up appointment so Dr. G. can assess your recovery and monitor your gum health. If a biopsy was performed, you may need to return to our office to review your results and plan any further treatments accordingly.
As soon as your treatment plan is made, our business team will reach out to your insurance company to review your benefits and determine if your laser gum treatment is covered. Trusted Dental Care works with many PPO plans and takes is pleased to accept several flexible forms of payment, including low-interest medical financing. Regardless of whether you carry insurance or have out-of-pocket expenses, we will work with you to help find an affordable payment option that fits within your family's budget.
