Periodontics is a branch of dentistry that focuses on preventing, diagnosing, and treating periodontal (gum) disease and other conditions that affect the gums and soft tissue in the mouth. Laser periodontics specifically uses dental lasers to treat damaged soft tissue in the mouth, rather than using traditional treatment methods. Treating soft tissue with lasers is extremely effective, less invasive, and less painful. It can be used to complete common periodontal treatments, such as scaling and root planing, as well as more complex procedures.
Periodontal disease and other damaged tissue can spread harmful bacteria throughout your mouth and cause your teeth and bone to deteriorate. Depending on the severity of your condition, our dentist will determine whether laser periodontics is right for you. The process of being treated with laser periodontics is very similar to what would happen in more traditional techniques. Our dentist will remove plaque buildup, kill harmful bacteria, and remove damaged tissue. However, with laser periodontics, most treatments do not require incisions, providing our patients with greater comfort and faster recoveries.
There are many benefits to treating your smile with laser periodontics. If you suffer from periodontal disease or other conditions that affect the soft tissue of your mouth, we welcome you to call or visit our office today.
