Why is Laser Treatment Better than the Conventional One?

  • Since the laser is painless, there is no need for anesthesia
  • Less bleeding and less infection (The laser beam in itself will coagulate the blood and kill all the germs.)
  • It’s a faster procedure
  • Discomfort, pain and swelling are significantly reduced
  • Faster healing
  • In most cases, there is no need to place sutures
  • It’s safe for patients taking anticoagulants like Aspirin, Plavix, which need not be stopped prior to the laser procedures
  • Less damage to the surrounding tissue
