Laser Gum Therapy

Improve Your Gum Health & Appearance

Dr. Balakrishnan is experienced in many treatments including laser gum therapy in Downers Grove and Lombard, IL. Our office uses advanced laser technology to help patients who are experiencing issues with an uneven gum line, gingivitis, or periodontal disease. It is an effective, quick, and easy way to correct gum issues.

How Can Laser Therapy Help?

Since oral hygiene can be more difficult with traditional braces (especially for children), the gums may become irritated and look uneven after braces are removed. Laser gum therapy, also known as gingival recontouring, can help resolve these issues and even out your gum line for a healthy smile. After your gums are recontoured, you can clean your teeth more easily and prevent dental problems down the road. Laser gum therapy can also improve your appearance by revealing more of your teeth for a big, beautiful smile.

Laser Therapy & Gum Disease

Gum disease is usually the result of poor oral hygiene and can cause your gums to grow over your teeth or recede. Those who do not brush and floss regularly will experience a buildup of plaque, which leads to gum disease. In addition, factors like smoking, poor diet, piercings, and family history can contribute to gum problems and cause more damage. Laser gum therapy not only treats the aesthetic aspect of gum overgrowth or recession but also treats cases of gingivitis and periodontal disease so you can achieve healthy gums.

Laser gum therapy is safe and the laser disinfects as it’s working, so there is little risk of infection. It is an effective treatment with long-lasting results — ask Dr. Balakrishnan for more information during your consultation.
