Laser gum treatments are performed at Palmer Dental Group of Houston and generally only require a local anesthetic. Nevertheless, additional sedation options may be available if you have dental fears or anxieties. Prior to your treatment, Dr. Palmer will go over precisely what you can expect during the process, whether you're having treatment for periodontal disease, getting an oral biopsy, having crown lengthening, or undergoing cosmetic gum sculpting. The laser minimizes bleeding and does not typically require stitches.

  • Generally results in less discomfort than traditional gum surgical treatment
  • The precision of the laser helps preserve more healthy tissue
