Laser-assisted Periodontal Therapy
Lasers are a modern way of treating periodontal disease. Controlled studies have shown that including lasers with the traditional cleanings can be used as an early intervention for gum disease and can enhance the overall health of gum tissues and can slow the progression of gum disease as compared to traditional scaling and root planing alone. While nothing will replace manual removal of plaque and tartar, laser gum therapy assists in decontaminating the gum pocket and eliminates bacterial colonies too small to be removed by traditional cleaning instruments. By using laser light energy, we can treat the diseased gum tissues and can drastically reduce the number of harmful bacteria that compromise our gum and oral health from billions to hundreds in matter of just seconds. This modern technology paired with traditional cleanings is the best way to ensure your radiant smile stays healthy.
