What is Periodontal Laser Therapy

Lasers have long been used in many industries, including dentistry.

A periodontal laser therapy is a kind, gentle method of controlling gum disease without having to resort to surgery. Other traditional gum disease treatments are scaling and root planing.

How Periodontal Laser Therapy Works

Dental lasers produce beams of light energy capable of removing or shaping tissue. The dentist uses the laser to remove infected gum tissues.

Once these tissues are removed, the next step is to scrape off plaque below the gumline, around the root of the tooth. Once done, the dentist smoothens the area to prevent future infections.

Benefits of Periodontal Lasers

Here are reasons we use Laser Periodontal Therapy™:

  • Preserves healthy tissues as only those affected by gum disease are removed
  • Reduces patient pain and discomfort
  • Allows gum and bone tissues to grow back

Are Periodontal Lasers Safe for Use?

Lasers can be used safely to treat periodontal issues but it is important to wear protection for your eyes during the procedure, just as you protect your eyes from direct and prolonged exposure to sunlight.
