FAQs About Laser Dentistry in Elyria & Westlake, OH

Q: What is the difference between periodontal disease and gum disease?

A: Periodontal disease is the term we use to describe an advanced form of gum disease. It starts as a bacterial infection of the gums and can lead to bone and tooth loss. This oral infection may require laser periodontal treatment.

Q: What is the least painful way to treat gum disease?

A: Laser periodontal treatment is a minimally uncomfortable way to treat gum disease because it is less traumatic than traditional gum surgery. Since it is a minimally invasive procedure, patients enjoy a very fast healing time.

Q: What are the benefits of laser gum surgery?

A: Laser periodontal treatment promotes a fast healing time and typically does not cause the gums to recede. The laser treatment can save healthy teeth and also encourages bone regeneration around the tooth structure.

Q: How do I know if laser periodontal treatment is safe?

A: The PerioLase® MVP-7™ laser is FDA cleared for the treatment of gum disease and is backed by several research studies. Dr. Guirguis is trained to offer laser gum surgery in his practice.
