Laser periodontal therapy offers less pain, quicker recovery
Laser periodontal therapy is a laser-based approach to treating gum disease using an Nd:YAG free running pulsed laser, which requires specific knowledge and skills through advanced training to operate.
To the patient this means: less pain, less bleeding, less swelling, less tissue removed, less down time, and less recovery time, which is decidedly less costly to you and your employer.
The reasons we use laser periodontal therapy are:
to remove only the diseased tissue without removing any of the healthy tissue,
to maintain the height of the tissue around teeth
to minimize pain and discomfort to the patient
to get closure of the periodontal pocket wound and allow healing to take place.
Controlling periodontal disease makes it possible to save and restore teeth that otherwise may be lost.
