How Safe is Laser Gum Treatment by Plano, TX dentists Dr. Stephen Bass and Dr. Ellen Hall.

Is Laser Gum Surgery a Safe Method of Treatment?

Laser gum surgery is actually a very safe method of treatment, especially when performed by a properly trained practitioner. Not only is it safe, it is a minimally invasive form of surgery and often can achieve similar outcomes as the traditional periodontal surgery which involves incisions and suturing.


Laser gum surgery is a very safe form of treatment. However, there are a lot of different lasers out there, and a lot of different practitioners using these lasers.


If you decide to have laser gum surgery, you need to talk with a practitioner of what type of laser they're using and their training. In our office, we use a PerioLase MVP laser that is FDA approved for periodontal bone regeneration. Dr. Bass and I have done extensive training on this, and have used this for over 10 years and feel very confident in our skills in using this type of laser.
