Gum Disease Affects Nearly Half of All American Adults
Gum (periodontal) disease is a serious condition impacting the health and lives of millions of Americans. Its symptoms include bleeding, swollen gums, bad breath and gum recession, among others. Gum disease is common. But leaving it untreated places your smile and health at significant risk. Life changes, from tooth loss to health problems like heart disease and diabetes, are often the result of uncontrolled gum disease. At Flagstaff Laser Dentistry, we offer the solutions you need to treat this progressive infection. Our laser gum treatment is a minimally invasive alternative to traditional osseous surgery, and a convenient way to restore a bright, healthy smile!
“Unlike traditional periodontal surgery we actually go in below the gum line without making incisions in the gum. We sterilize the root surface, clean all the debris off the root surface, and kick start the healing response once below the gum line so the patient has a lot less post traumatic pain.”

Discover the Benefits of Laser Gum Disease Treatment
Before laser surgery was introduced, the traditional means of treating moderate to severe gum disease was osseous surgery. Thanks to modern advancements, we now have access to a more cost-effective and comfortable alternative solution. Laser gum disease treatment leads to an overall better dental experience.
Benefits of laser gum treatment:
- Minimally invasive
- Little to no bleeding
- No incisions or sutures
- Healthy tissue remains intact
- Faster healing time
- Greater comfort
