Laser Therapy & Gum Disease Treatment
Laser therapy is an advanced treatment used to effectively treat periodontal infections and gum disease among many other dental treatments. The precision treatment aids faster healing and stimulates tissue regeneration.
About This Treatment
Lasers can be used for a range of dental treatments, which include: Melanin gum pigmentation removal, aphthae + ulcer treatment, frenectomy + gingivectomy, disinfection + treatment of peri-implantitis, cavity preparations-fillings. In gum disease treatment a dental laser (we use the Doctor Smile Erbium and Diode laser) is used to target infected gum tissue, removing it from around the tooth to allow the root to be cleaned, removing bacteria and calculus.
The laser helps to decontaminate the tooth and stimulate the body’s natural healing response, for faster, more effective treatment. It is used to smooth the root surface, removing rough edges that bacteria can cling to and helping to prevent future infections. Laser treatment is also used to stimulate tissue regeneration including bone, peridontal, gingival and hard tooth tissue.
