What is Laser Periodontal Therapy?
Modern dentistry has yielded incredible advances for patients seeking treatment for periodontal disease. The development of laser periodontal surgery is one such technological improvement. This procedure offers patients the opportunity to experience comfortable care while improving their oral health.
Understanding Laser Periodontal Therapy
Traditionally, treatment for periodontal disease requires root scaling to remove tartar and plaque that have been built up with dental picks. Comprehensive treatment for advanced cases of gum disease involves minimizing periodontal pockets surgically. Although highly effective, this treatment may not completely remove the bacteria-causing disease, leaving patients susceptible to periodontitis recurrence.
Unlike traditional tools, laser periodontal surgery with soft-tissue laser treatment eliminates all bacteria present between the tooth and gums and, if necessary, can remove infected soft tissue. With this state-of-the-art technology, our minimally invasive periodontal treatment requires no suturing, as the laser cauterizes tissue during the procedure.
Our approach to treating gum disease with lasers provides a highly safe and effective alternative to routine periodontal care for patients.
The Benefits of Laser Periodontal Therapy
There are many advantages to this procedure versus traditional periodontal care. Patients can enjoy enhanced comfort during their procedure with laser periodontal treatment. Post-operative discomfort is minimized in this surgical treatment, with most patients being able to return to work the next day.
Recent studies have shown laser periodontal treatment to increase gum reattachment to the tooth and bone in minor cases of gum disease. Laser periodontal treatment helps protect other parts of the mouth, such as the underlying bone, by eliminating bacteria that cause periodontal disease. Patients can improve their entire smile comprehensively with laser periodontal treatment.
Following the procedure, patients will be given guidance on recovery techniques and how to perform post-treatment to avoid a relapse of periodontal disease.
