What is Periodontal Disease?

Periodontal disease, often known as gum disease, is a prevalent oral health issue. It occurs when bacteria in the mouth form plaque, which, if not removed by regular brushing and flossing, can harden into tartar. As tartar builds up along the gumline, it can lead to inflammation and infection of the gums, known as gingivitis. If left untreated, gingivitis can progress to periodontitis, where the gums pull away from the teeth and form infected pockets.

Periodontal disease can result in tooth loss and other serious dental complications if not addressed promptly by a dentist. Therefore, maintaining good oral hygiene and regular dental check-ups are crucial in preventing and managing periodontal disease.

Laser Periodontal Treatment

Laser periodontal treatment offers a modern approach to managing periodontal disease effectively. Using focused beams of light, the laser targets and removes diseased gum tissue, bacteria, and tartar buildup with precision.

Unlike traditional methods, laser treatment is minimally invasive, resulting in less discomfort and faster healing times for patients. Additionally, the laser's energy helps to stimulate the regeneration of healthy gum tissue and promote the attachment of gums to the teeth. This innovative treatment option can effectively reduce inflammation, eliminate pockets between the gums and teeth, and halt the progression of periodontal disease.

Overall, laser periodontal treatment represents a promising advancement in dental technology, offering improved outcomes and greater comfort for individuals combating periodontal disease.

How Does it Work?

Step 1: The pocket depth is measured.

Step 2: The laser precisely targets the disease in the tooth pocket.

Step 3: Laser light selectively removes the diseased tissue and targets the tartar build-up on the root surface for easier removal, while leaving the healthy tissue intact.

Step 4: Stubborn plaque and tartar can then be gently removed with the laser.

Step 5: The laser gently coagulates the tissue, which can enhance and promote the reconnection to the root for healing and tooth stabilization.
