When severe gum disease cannot be cured with antibiotics or other treatment methods, patients may need Dr. Khattab to perform a gingivectomy using a dental laser.
A gingivectomy is an oral surgical procedure that removes and reshapes loose, diseased gum tissue to eliminate pockets between the teeth and gums. After a gingivectomy, it will often be easier for patients to keep their teeth and gums clean and slow the progression of gum disease.

- Anesthesia is not required for many laser dentistry treatments.
- Recovery time post-treatment is generally much quicker than with traditional dental treatment.
- Laser dentistry treatments are often more comfortable for patients.
- The risk of bacterial infection is lowered due to the precision of laser dentistry treatments.
