Laser Dentistry: Case 3 Connie suffered from periodontal disease and previously had gum surgery to treat the disease. Connie's gum health was decreasing and Dr. Heringer recommended laser therapy to treat the gum disease. In order to successfully make a positive difference Connie could go through surgery again or have laser therapy which is less invasive. Laser Dentistry was used throughout Connieâ€™s whole mouth on her gum tissue removing the unhealthy tissue and cleaning the pockets around each tooth to promote healthy gum tissue.
Connie now has healthy gum tissue and the periodontal disease is under control. Connie stated she would never consider surgery again and would recommend laser therapy for treating periodontal disease.
