Dental laser treatment for periodontal disease was one of the first reasons why the technology was developed. Diode lasers are able to help destroy infectious bacteria and remove heavy amounts of buildup.
Incorporating a dental laser with your traditional deep cleaning can improve your response to periodontal care. As a result, pocket depths can be restricted and tissues more likely to reattach to the roots of teeth.
What’s more, Diode Laser is a viable alternative to the scalpel for various soft tissue procedures such as frenectomy, gingivectomy and gingivoplasty, deepithelization of reflected periodontal flaps, removal of granulation tissue and crown lengthening.
The benefits of laser dentistry for gum treatment is that it’s gentle enough to treat the outer layer of tissues, but tough enough to destroy the source of the infection. Compared to deep cleanings performed without a dental laser, you’ll see things like reduced swelling and sensitivity, improved pocket depths, and less bleeding.
