Periodontal Laser Management

The periodontal laser is a high-tech piece of equipment that produces a concentrated beam of light. Through the use of fiber optics, the light is placed in your mouth and removes infection and gum disease from around your teeth.
During the periodontal laser procedure, the laser beam is used to sterilize the affected areas. It also seals off, or cauterizes blood vessels to minimize bleeding and the possibility of infection. Periodontal laser therapy offers a much more comfortable experience for the patient during and after the procedure.

Lasers and Dentistry

Lasers are an effective way to treat problems with the soft tissues and present no significant danger to the patient. The laser itself is very low powered, which is necessary for performing delicate procedures. The controlled light and heat that comes from the laser destroys bacteria and viruses that may be present in periodontal pockets.
Benefits

There are many benefits that come with the use of periodontal lasers:

  • Shorter healing periods
  • Less risk of infection
  • Less bleeding
  • Less sensitivity in the treated areas
  • Less discomfort after the procedure
  • Less time spent in the dentist's office
