Laser therapy is a recent advancement in dentistry. With the use of low power lasers we can aid in the treatment of periodontal disease by utilizing the LANAP protocol. Following your deep cleaning, we will utilize a laser in order to remove the remaining infected gum tissue. In addition, the laser will help to remove any lingering bacteria from deep within the gum pocket. This helps to promote healing and reattachment of the gums to the teeth. With laser therapy, patients typically report less post-operative sensitivity and have excellent healing. Laser treatment is completed under topical or local anesthetic and is a very quick procedure. It can be completed at any time during your periodontal therapy, but is most effective right after the deep cleaning is completed. Please feel free to inquire with us to determine if you are a candidate for laser gum therapy.
