Laser Gum Surgery Vs. Traditional Gum Surgery

What Are The Differences?

Traditional surgery uses a scalpel requiring sutures. Laser gum surgery does not, resulting in less bleeding.

With laser gum surgery, patients experience less pain and downtime than they do with traditional surgery. Patients who have laser gum surgery for gum disease treatment rarely need pain medications and most return to work the next day.

Traditional surgery cuts into the gum line, creating gum recession even in healthy tissue. Laser gum surgery is minimally invasive and does not involve cutting of any kind. This gum disease treatment preserves gum tissue.

Laser gum surgery actually regenerates bone tissue and encourages connective reattachment of tissue by stimulating the bone surrounding the teeth. Even though both traditional surgery and laser gum disease treatment enjoy long lasting results, laser surgery gum disease treatment has the ability to save teeth, effectively reversing periodontal disease.

The healing times associated with gum disease treatment are much less with laser gum surgery than traditional. This is due to the fact that laser gum surgery requires no cutting and also because the laser assists in forming a seal around the tooth.

If you have questions about LANAP® or laser gum surgery in Clearwater, FL, contact our office. We would be glad to invite you in for a consultation for gum disease treatment.

I've been going here for several years and love the dental hygienists. Tami especially is calming and knowledgeable. I enjoy having her clean my... teeth. I recently had to get some new x-rays and was introduced to their new doc, Dr. Aymee. She is amazing! She knows her stuff, has good experience, and explains things really well to a layperson. I had to get a crown put on and both Dr. Aymee and Chas were great to work with. They are a pleasant and efficient team and I felt no pain (during or after) except little ouchie getting the anesthetic in my gums. Chas was great with making up my temporary crown - I've had it for a week now and it feels like a regular tooth to me. I don't even notice it. I like this place and can recommend it.read more

Northwood dental is absolutely the best. How do I know this... I'm one of the hygienists and have happily been employed here 18 years. Yesterday I... had Tami, another hygienist look at a tooth that I believed had a fracture. She confirmed it did. I found an opening in Dr. K's busy schedule for Friday morning. In the mean time he viewed a picture taken of the tooth and said it can't wait until Friday. At the end of our busy day Gaby and Dr.K began preparing to crown a cracked tooth. The fracture extended deeply into the tooth and it was unsavable. An extraction was needed and completed. Next up, implant. No pain whatsoever. He and Gaby are extraordinary with their surgical expertise. Their compassion towards their patients is felt and appreciated by all. Thank you both again, 💖. HELEN.So, I had the second part of my implant procedure Nov 12th. It couldn't get any better. Martin and Dr. K were so in sync with each other preforming my implant surgery flawlessly. There was no pain involved and kept me informed during the process as to what the were doing. Thank you so much.I also want to thank Lilli for helping Dr. K recement my temporary implant crown. I did something I shouldn't have. Oops.5/2/2023Thank you Alex for an amazing dental cleaning. Very gentle and thorough. :)read more

I am now in my adult years and have a lot of needed maintenance and needed an office who cares about the me and talks to me about services.

I needed some intricate and long over due dentistry done and really didn’t know who to see. I checked around and decided to see Dr Wagner. He and... his staff have been #1 in my book since I started seeing him and that’s why I decided to continue my full treatment with him. His experience clearly comes through and his assistants are always on point. Katt (one of the dental assistants always illustrates her skills and professionalism and backs Dr Wagner up and makes me feel confident I’m at the right place. Thank you very very much Northwood Dental-Dr Wagner, Katt and everyone else there for helping me get my mouth and smile back to par!!Darrell Craigread more
