Laser periodontal therapy is a brand-new therapy for periodontal disease and offers promising results for many patients. If you have periodontal disease, our expert in periodontics in Los Angeles may recommend laser periodontal therapy.
Conventional gum disease treatment involves cleaning the plaque and tartar buildup responsible for the gum inflammation and smoothing the surface of the exposed root. Periodontal surgery can be used in later stages. With laser therapy, a special dental laser is used to remove tartar, plaque, and bacteria and help the gum tissue heal and regenerate. The laser can also be used to smooth the root of the tooth. Lasers reduce bleeding, speed healing, and minimize swelling and pain. They also allow for more precise and accurate targeting of diseased tissue for easier, faster recovery and healing.
After undergoing laser therapy, proper post-therapy dental care is critical. You may need to adjust your at-home dental hygiene routine and the products you use. You may also need more frequent professional cleanings to reduce the risk of dental infections.
