Laser Gum Therapy
Laser gum therapy is the latest development in gum disease treatment. Using laser dentistry, Dr. Aaron T. Ward can provide treatments that are both effective and comfortable, with reduced bleeding and post-operative sensitivity, a reduced risk of infection, and an increased healing rate. We use lasers to perform many of the treatments offered at our practice. Please contact us at 801-394-6651 to learn more about laser gum treatment in Ogden, Utah, and to schedule your appointment with our talented periodontist.
Laser gum therapy in our Ogden office is a type of treatment for periodontal disease that is completed using a dental laser. Our periodontist may recommend laser gum treatment for our Ogden patients if your smile is affected by periodontal disease. Also known as gum disease, periodontal disease is a degenerative condition caused by bacteria in plaque. As the plaque builds up on the teeth, the bacteria may cause inflammation and infection in the gums and supporting tissues. When left untreated, gum disease can lead to tooth loss, bone loss, and receding gums. Laser gum treatment is used to kill bacteria, remove infected tissue, and encourage the growth of healthy gum tissue. Through treatment, we strive to halt the progress of the disease and encourage the growth of healthy tissue.
We also use lasers to provide frenectomies. When the natural muscle attachments connecting the lips to the gum are too large, our periodontist can perform a frenectomy in our Ogden office to surgically remove the muscle (called a frenulum) improve oral health. Frenectomies are also recommended for patients suffering from tongue-tie.
Periodontal treatment completed using dental lasers is typically more comfortable than traditional methods. In fact, you may not even require anesthetic for your laser gum treatment. Laser gum treatment is efficient and comfortable. Laser dentistry often eliminates the need for stitches and decreases your risk of infection following treatment, and dental lasers also minimize bleeding.

"I visited several dentists before choosing Doctor Ward. I can’t express how happy I am with my decision. I haven’t stopped smiling since I left his office. He was professional and friendly, as was his staff. If I had to undergo this procedure again I would choose Doctor Ward again and again. Thank you Doctor Ward and staff. You have changed my life forever!!!"
"I've been very fortunate in selecting Dr. Ward to do the implant surgery I had been investigating for over a year. I am still going through the process, but I couldn't be happier with what he has done so far. I received a very thorough consultation before having the work done. The process was painless and recovery was a breeze. At my follow-up visits, he takes time to answer all my questions and makes sure that any issues I'm having are resolved. I trust his work and advice completely. His assistants and office staff are very knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. I highly recommend Dr. Ward."
