Laser Gum Surgery in Brea, CA
How Laser Gum Surgery Works
If you have been diagnosed with periodontal disease, Dr. J. Dennis Lewis may recommend laser gum surgery as part of your treatment plan. Laser surgery can effectively eradicate the infection in the mouth so your gums heal faster. Unlike other periodontal disease procedures, this treatment requires minimal downtime and can restore the health of your gums quickly. Our relaxing, spa-like environment will help you feel comfortable before your laser treatment and any other gum disease procedures.
Laser Gum Surgery vs. Osseous Surgery
Unlike traditional osseous surgery that involves cutting away gum tissue to access infection and diseased tissue, laser gum surgery is a minimally-invasive procedure that can target infected tissue without requiring any incisions. We can eradicate harmful bacteria and remove damaged tissue with minimal discomfort, and without causing harm to healthy areas.
- Minimal to no downtime

Undergoing Laser Gum Surgery
Laser treatment for periodontal disease is a minimally-invasive treatment and may be performed under local anesthesia, although most patients say they do not require it. You will not feel any pain or much discomfort during treatment. We do have other sedation dentistry options available for patients with high dental anxiety.
There are periodontal disease red flags that should not be ignored. These include:
- Chronic bad breath
- Gum recession
- Bleeding gums
- Periodontal pocketing
- Loose or shifting teeth
