Laser dentistry is a minimally invasive technique that utilizes lasers to perform a variety of dental procedures. It involves the use of a highly concentrated beam of light that can be used to remove or reshape tissue, whiten teeth, or treat gum disease. The procedure is often painless and can be completed quickly, without the need for anesthesia or traditional dental tools.
Laser dentistry is an effective treatment option for patients with periodontal disease because it can be used to target and remove the bacteria that cause the disease, without damaging healthy tissue. The laser is able to target the affected areas of the gum tissue and remove the bacteria that has accumulated in the pockets around the teeth.
During the laser treatment for periodontal disease, our dental professionals at Provinces Dental will use a special dental laser to remove the infected tissue, which allows the gums to reattach to the tooth roots. This process can help to reduce inflammation and swelling, and promote faster healing. Additionally, laser dentistry can stimulate the body’s natural healing response, which can help to promote the growth of new healthy tissue.
