Most traditional gum treatments are predominantly centralised around the elimination of bacterial infection. The post-operative result of this type of therapy often depicts gum recession with its associated bone loss. The loss is irreversible and involves much aesthetic oral plastic surgery to correct. Laser surgery, on the other hand, eradicates these types of post-operative sub-standard aesthetic results. Areas treated with lasers eliminate the infection in such a way as to ‘sterilise’ the area being treated.
