Laser periodontal therapy is a minimally invasive dental treatment that uses a specialized dental laser to remove infected gum tissue and promote healing. It’s an effective treatment option for people with periodontal disease and has several benefits over traditional treatments.
One of the main benefits of laser periodontal therapy is that it’s less painful and requires less recovery time. Patients typically experience little to no pain during the procedure and can return to normal activities the same day. The laser is also more precise than traditional treatments, targeting specific areas of the gum tissue without damaging healthy tissue. This helps to preserve the structure of the tooth and reduce the risk of complications.
Another benefit of laser periodontal therapy is that it’s more effective than traditional treatments. The laser can remove more bacteria from the gum tissue than scaling and root planing alone. Additionally, it promotes the growth of healthy tissue and bone, which helps to repair the damage caused by the infection.
Overall, laser periodontal therapy is a comfortable, precise, and effective treatment option for periodontal disease.
