FAQs About Laser Dentistry in Elyria & Westlake, OH


What is the difference between periodontal disease and gum disease?

Periodontal disease is the term we use to describe an advanced form of gum disease. It starts as a bacterial infection of the gums and can lead to bone and tooth loss. This oral infection may require laser periodontal treatment.


What is the least painful way to treat gum disease?

Laser periodontal treatment is a minimally uncomfortable way to treat gum disease because it is less traumatic than traditional gum surgery. Since it is a minimally invasive procedure, patients enjoy a very fast healing time.


What are the benefits of laser gum surgery?

Laser periodontal treatment promotes a fast healing time and typically does not cause the gums to recede. The laser treatment can save healthy teeth and also encourages bone regeneration around the tooth structure.


How do I know if laser periodontal treatment is safe?

The PerioLase® MVP-7™ laser is FDA cleared for the treatment of gum disease and is backed by several research studies. Dr. Guirguis is trained to offer laser gum surgery in his practice.
