Laser therapy can help improve your oral health and is a great instrument for treating periodontal disease. This is a relatively painless procedure that removes bacteria and infected tissue from inside of the gums. A small amount of laser energy is directed trough a tiny fiber that is gently placed between the gum and tooth. This laser energy aids in reducing the bacteria associated with periodontal disease. After the area is thoroughly cleaned, the affected area can naturally heal. Ask your hygienist at your next appointment about laser therapy.
At our clinic, we also use laser technology to provide quality treatment for our patients and we use it for a variety of applications. For instance, laser can improve your smile, especially in cases where gingival modifications are needed to create a beautiful smile and allow less gum showing. Using laser allows us to provide treatments with less bleedings and faster healing than using scalpel and sutures.
