What Is Gum Treatment?

Gum treatment is a branch of non-invasive dentistry in which heavily inflamed gum tissue is treated using a laser specifically designed to fit between the tooth and gum tissue to kill any germs/infected tissue causing the inflammation. Gingivitis/periodontitis is caused by a number of reasons, such as, poor oral hygiene, genetics, chronic illnesses, smoking, and certain medications. Periodontal disease is one of the leading oral conditions in patients.  Failure to remove the infected tissue can lead to serious issues such as  infections, extractions, loose teeth bone loss, etc.

What Are The Benefits Of Gum Treatment?

  • Reduced gum inflammation
  • Reduced bleeding
  • Non-invasive
  • Minimizes risk of bacterial infection
  • Rapid recovery

How Much Does Gum Therapy Cost?

Most insurance companies cover gum therapy under preventative services. The mouth is split into sextants (a sextant is one of six equal parts in which a dental arch is split into). Each sextant costs $800.

Why Dr. Girn/Home of Dentistry?

Dr. Girn has completed several laser gum therapy treatment cases with a high success rate. Dr. Girn takes advantage of the use of laser treatment versus the traditional invasive method resulting in minimal pain, healthier gums, and a happy patient.


We have been to many dentists before and we haven't met a pleasant dentist like Dr. Girn. My family and I have been going to him for twelve years and they've always been helpful and friendly to us. He will make you feel comfortable and relaxed in his room. His office staff are professional, sincere, welcoming and friendly as well. I want to thank your friendly staff for accommodating my needs and for always taking good care of my family and I. The customer service is truly awesome. The moment you walk in they will greet you along with their welcoming smile, from that second you are treated like family. You feel calm and relaxed because in each room there are many televisions, so wherever the patients look there will be something for them to look at so they can take their minds off the work that is being done in their mouth. We're so glad that he is our family dentist now! I highly recommend Dr. Girn for anyone looking for an amazing dentist. Dr. Girn and his staff are amazing and his office is always clean and well kept. When you walk out of there, you will leave with a smile. if anyone is looking for a well trusted and professional dentist, then I highly recommend you come to Dr. Girn. You won't be disappointed.
