Common Questions and Answers about Laser surgery on gums


237563 tn?1298432497 There is laser surgery to get back pink gums but surely one must get UND first..... Just wondering.... Thanks!
Avatar n tn Yes, I see one 4 times a year for deep cleaning - also had laser surgery 2 years ago. Could the roughness be due to the gum brush and using too much? When I quit smoking, will it go away or reduce substantially? How long will it take? Thank you, again.
Avatar n tn was having trouble with my asthma had to take 2 antibiotics and streroids well low and behold with all the burning down there I noticed another skin tag so I have another appoint to get it taken care of. What I want to share also with HPV stress on the body, pregnancy , surgery etc lowers the immunities and a lot of time that when it appears. I was thinking that maybe that was why the skin thing came up too.
Avatar m tn My husband switched dentist, and the new dentist started digging in his gums, and told him he needs laser surgery for gum disease. He is obsessed with cleaning his teeth and never had a problem before, he thinks the dentist could of given him some type of bacteria with the instruments and the digging in his gums. Is this at all possible?
Avatar n tn I too have/had bumps like most people here. Today I received laser surgery to get it removed as I was told (after seeing a physician and two dermatologists) that the procedure was my only option. My lips are a little swollen and kind of sore but I'm glad to finally have it done. According to my plastic surgeon, the oil glands are because I am naturally oily. He also says my excessive use of lip ointment could be a reason as well. He says use lip ointment scarcely on specific areas.
Avatar f tn Bruxism (clenching and grinding) can cause sensitivity And the list can go on and on.
Avatar n tn ask your dental surgeon. I am consulting with the laser tech on Wed. I hope to do the V-beam in January. My skin was pretty good, but broke out somewhat after the cold spell hit, and the heat got cranked up in the house. I bought this huge humidifier, but not sure if it helps. The seborrheic dermatitis doesn't want to improve. For a while there it looked better, but all in all everything gotten a little worse since the cold front hit.
Avatar f tn The watery SF drainage has now become an extremely thick mucous that I usually can not even swallow because it is too thick to go down. Two days after surgery, I developed thrush on my tongue, gums and throat. I have been treated for over four months now with various strengths of magic mouth wash and oral diflucan with no improvement, just worsening. I had a biopsy done and it showed it was not thrush, or cancer.
Avatar n tn I had noticed that the scar on the left side from my lap surgery gets tender near the beginning of my monthly cycle; that is why I think endo might be rearing its ugly head again. The cysts on the remaining right ovary are both around 1 cm in size. They are simple cysts with thin walls, and the fact that there are two of them is better news than there just being one. Having more than one is more indicative of a hormonal disturbance.
Avatar n tn Since yesterday I've had a large swollen bump on the labia's very painful, it hurts to walk or sit. I've been putting warm cloth on it and it seemed to help with the swelling but it's still really painful. I don't really want to go to the doctor because I just don't have the money right now, and I feel like it would be a waste if it's something that I can take care of on my own. Anyone else ever experienced this before? What can I do to ease the pain?
Avatar n tn A through cleaning of all the tarter that has built up under the gum line is the only way to stop the progression of the gumline recession. Nothing you put on your gums will help. If they are receding, go to the dentist and have it checked out and your teeth cleaned. It's the ONLY way.
Avatar f tn If you still have sufficient bone, perhaps LANAP surgery would help. It's laser gum flap surgery to remove areas that can hold the bacteria. Other than surgical remedies, there's not much you can do if you reached the stage where you are considering pan extractions. Good luck, but IMO, do put your $ where it can really help.
Avatar f tn After several different doctors, I was told that I had trigeminal neuralgia as well as a deviated septum. I eventually had laser surgery for the trigeminal neuralgia, but the a facial pain continues. The nerve pain has subsided, but I continue to have facial pain on my left side. The pain seems to get worse if I lean my head to that side. This occurred a few years ago, and after several months of taking seizure medication and lortab, I was not getting any better.
480331 tn?1310407129 Turns out she has a lip tie (this is the upper lip is tied to the gums by the piece of skin - like a tongue tie but is the top of the mouth). She will be having surgery on this in a few weeks - will find out when on Saturday (it will cause jaw and tooth problems if not corrected - could cause severe buck teeth, among others). Am hoping that having this corrected will make BF more comfortable for me.
Avatar f tn My concern is that I have suffered a blow-out fracture (my upper lip and gums were very numb but this is reducing now), however the hospital does not seem too concerned (being as they have not called me back in quickly after the CT scan). Could my double vision be a result of eye muscle swelling, and will this reduce in time? I carried a heavy box the other day and felt a throbbing around my eye after- maybe that's in my head- could that really cause that effect?
Avatar n tn Upon taking her in we discovered bloody gums and a horrible smell. We were sent to an oral surgeon whom suggested extracting them all, however her creatnine, bun and phosphurus were 16.5 and up. Off the charts. All other tests within normal range. Now, she had an xtray and ultrasound in Sept, after she had a bladder stone removed in surgery. She did horrible from anesthesia and pain meds and we felt she would not make it. She has strained to urinate ever since, and bears down.
Avatar n tn local guy, who had Gum surgery several years back, the pockets worsened, and he had the laser surgery. It's been 2 years since he had surgery and his pockets reduced dramatically and has no bleeding. Here's a good review on PerioLase: let me know what you think or what other options might be worth considering.
Avatar n tn I know anything deeper than 5 to 6 mm will probably not be suitable but looking at the pictures on the net on other cases gives me some hope but my gut says I may have to "bite" the bullet. My concern is the 18 month procedure, the loss of bone mass from my jaws while the gums and bones are treated and the cost of having implants.
Avatar f tn Trigeminal pain hit when an endodontist used laser to cut gums and hit nerves..I suffered for a year seeing a dental pain specialist but taking nothing..That was when my back started to hurt from the fall and I was referred to a pain dr who found I had facet joint arthritis sacral 1thru5....I had cortisone injections that did not help, Out of the blue I had the feeling a red hot poker hit my clit..I woke up screaming.....screaming...
Avatar n tn I have waves of constant burning and pressure on the left side of my face. It simultaneously moves from the upper teeth and gums to the lower ones. I had an MVD operation and numerous proceedures (too many to name) that tried to kill the nerve and even had 2 stimulators implanted to try and reduce the pain. I have tried every drug out there and the one that worked (Trileptal) caused me to have danerously low sodium levels that caused me to end up in the hospital.
Avatar n tn I doubt that dental implants ar amalgams could cause problems only on the lips (as opposed to the gums and inner cheeks.) Allergy of any kind is unlikely. If you want to be absolutely sure, you should consult a dermatologist who specializes in allergy patch testing. Check at a local academic medical center. The American Academy of Dermatology ( is a good resource. Best. Dr.

Avatar n tn It feels like the shot you would get in your gums if you were having your teeth worked on. It's a little pinch and then it's over. I am feeling completely normal today. I'm not even bleeding. I hope everything goes well for you.
Avatar n tn There are rules and regulations to being a health care provider, or are you passing on uneducated advice, cause now you have my back up. I've been at the hospital supporting my sister for the last 5 days........................ better yet, don't respond at all, I'll get my answers else where!

748543 tn?1463449675 Brody, relied heavily on out dated and narrow perspective supplied to her by a small group of dentists. The information provided to her would lead one to believe that TMD ( or "TMJ' as it is wrongly called by many) is easy to treat and self-manage or that it may all be in the patient's mind. The sources in the article stated that, "TMJ problems were originally thought to be caused by dental Malocclusion but that this was an infrequent cause of the problem".
605458 tn?1539232408 I had mostly sharp shooting pain episodes, and an underlying constant burning pain. The surgery got rid of the pain. This year, the pain came back, only this time, the constant burning episodes were more distressing than the sharp shooting pain. Neurontin seems to have dealt with a lot of the stinging, shooting pain and bug crawling sensations, but I still get days of burning pain. My questions- Can trigeminal nerve pain feel like it is behind or around the eyeball?
Avatar m tn As you can see by the hundreds of comments, the Flip-Turn Sinus Flush works extremely well for chronic bacterial infections of the upper sinuses, replacing antibiotics and surgery in most instances. For infections of the lower sinuses, I recommend the Neilmed Sinus Rinse--available at most pharmacies--as it requires less effort and risk.
