Laser Gum Therapy

At Riverbend Family Dental Care, we use laser technology for a number of dental treatments for patients living in the Edmonton community.



Laser Gum Therapy for Periodontal Disease

Gum disease is treatable and fully preventable. Our team offers laser therapy for moderate to severe causes of gum disease.

What is gum disease?

Gum disease is the breakdown of healthy gum tissue around the teeth due to decay, beginning with plaque.

Plaque forms on your teeth every day. It also forms where your teeth and your gums meet. If plaque is not removed every day by brushing and flossing, eventually tooth decay and gum disease develop.

How can dental lasers help?

When used for surgical and dental procedures, lasers can offer many benefits for patients who are afraid or feel anxious around the traditional dental drill.

In many circumstances, lasers can help reduce bleeding or swelling following oral surgery, and can potentially result in few dental visits in cases where a more complex dental treatment is required.

Lasers can reshape gums in cosmetic procedures and can also remove bacteria during a root canal procedure.
