In medical science, continuous efforts are being made to improve and upgrade therapeutic and surgical methods to solve oral and gum health problems. In this regard, the use of new technologies has emerged as an alternative to traditional methods. One of these new methods is laser gum surgery, which has been considered an effective alternative to traditional gum surgery methods in recent years. This method, which uses laser energy in the surgical process of gum problems, has been able to find a special place in the field of oral and gum health by improving productivity and reducing patients’ fear of surgery.
In medical science, one of the important issues in performing various surgeries and treatments is to reduce the pain and fear of patients from these processes. In gum surgery, this issue is very important. Therefore, the use of laser technology in gum surgery plays a very effective role in reducing pain and fear of surgery.
One of the main advantages of using a laser in gum surgery is to reduce pain after surgery. Laser energy affects the gum tissues accurately and with high control. This energy affects the tissues for a short time by creating a small thermal effect. This thermal effect is very limited and controlled, which can minimize complications and discomfort after surgery.
Fear of surgery is one of the factors that prevent many patients from performing medical procedures. In laser gum surgery, patients feel less fear and anxiety after surgery due to the less effect of laser energy on the surrounding tissues and the lack of complex and tracheal incisions. This issue is especially important for people who are afraid of oral surgeries.
The use of laser technology in gum surgery has been studied and researched a lot in terms of safety. The results of this research show that the use of lasers in gum surgery does not increase the possibility of cancer. By properly setting the parameters and laser power, this technology selectively and accurately affects the relevant tissues and affects the surrounding tissues as little as possible. This means reducing the risk of unwanted losses to healthy tissues and not causing unwanted changes in cellular and genetic structure.
Research and scientific studies show that the use of laser with appropriate parameters in gum surgery leads to improved quality and safety of treatment. For this reason, in addition to reducing the pain and fear of patients, the use of laser as a safe method in gum surgery has been considered and used.
The use of lasers in gum surgery usually requires less time than traditional methods. This advantage is due to the unique ability of the laser to simultaneously cut and repair tissues. In traditional methods, first, the incision is made on the damaged tissues and then the repair takes place, which may be time-consuming.
Using a laser, these two steps are performed simultaneously. This reduces the surgery time. Also, due to the reduction of bleeding and inflammatory reactions in the process of gum surgery with laser, the healing and recovery time is also significantly shorter. This possibility allows patients to return to their daily activities faster.
In this way, laser gum surgery can be an effective and relatively more effective alternative to traditional methods in the treatment of gum problems, not only because of the reduction of surgery time but also because of the increase in the speed of post-operative recovery.
The use of laser in gum surgery has many advantages, but it may also be associated with problems and complications. Some of the problems that may arise are:
All these problems are generally less important than the general benefits of using a laser in gum surgery and are managed and treated by specialist doctors in most cases.
The appropriate use of laser gum surgery depends on the specific condition of each patient. The type and severity of gum problems can be the main determinant for choosing a surgical method. In this case, there are two possible situations:
Suitable cases for laser gum surgery: In some cases, laser gum surgery can be considered as the initial and suitable method. For example, in mild cases of gum pocket congestion (which has caused the tissues around the teeth to not be cleaned normally), laser gum surgery can be performed.
Cases that require accurate diagnosis: In some cases, there is a need for more accurate diagnosis and medical advice. Gum problems can be diverse and choosing the right method should be done according to the specific conditions of each patient. Specialist doctors in the field of laser gum surgery, by carefully examining and fully understanding the patient’s problems, decide whether laser gum surgery is suitable or not, or whether other methods are needed.
Finally, any decision about the type of gum surgery should be made with the expert consultation and diagnosis of a specialist doctor to choose the best treatment solution based on the individual conditions of each patient.
After laser gum surgery, special care is required for faster and better recovery. Your doctor will give you detailed instructions that you must follow carefully. These cares include the following:
By strictly following the doctor’s instructions, you can experience a faster recovery after laser gum surgery enjoy better results, and suffer fewer complications.
