Laser Dentistry Therapy
Laser dentistry is extremely effective in reducing the bacteria that cause periodontal or gum disease
Lasers are finding an increasingly large place in healthcare. In dentistry the most research has been in the application of lasers to periodontal or gum disease.
At our office, diode lasers are used to reduce bacterial and viral activity in the mouth. Reducing the bacteria that cause gum disease is one of the primary applications of the technology. Additionally, cold sores and herpes flare-ups respond well to low intensity lasers as do touchy areas on teeth which are sensitive from gum recession
Why we use laser dentistry therapy
our office’s periodontal therapists also use lasers in a more focused application known as gingival curettage. This treatment is effective when deeper periodontal infections are present around teeth and the risk of bone loss is greater. When successful, laser treatment will minimize the need for periodontal surgery and maybe avoid it altogether.
Treating Gum Disease in Midtown Manhattan
Lasers are used to treat periodontal or gum disease. Clinical studies have shown that similar results have been discovered with the use of lasers compared to other treatment methods, including scaling and root planing alone. Traditionally, dentists use scaling and root planing for non-surgical therapy to treat patients suffering from periodontal diseases.
