Laser gum pocket therapy painful and burning smell? Malpractice?

I've read accounts of the laser therapy being painless. Everywhere I read indicates it should be painless.

However, I personally experienced a burning smell through the entire procedure, and sharp laser burning pain, despite being FULLY NUMBED with local anesthetic for the deep cleaning procedure minutes before.

Was the laser intensity set too high? Was I given gum line reshaping instead of gum pocket therapy? Is this maltreatment?

Good day

Laser therapy being painless is very relative. The burning smell is normal and sometimes during a deep pocket cleaning, there might be a possibility of it being sensitive. Can't give any information regarding the settings, due to not knowing what wavelength diode laser was used and to what intensity the settings were adjusted to prior to the procedure.
