Laser Periodontal Therapy

What Is Laser Periodontal Therapy?

Laser periodontal therapy is a proven alternative to traditional periodontal therapy. Not only do soft tissue lasers only touch the tissues needing treatment, but bleeding is virtually eliminated and they sterilize as they work. All of this translates into more precise and comfortable care, with a better outcome and a faster recovery. Currently, our Weatherford office uses a soft tissue laser for gum disease and cosmetic gum re-contouring.

How Laser Dentistry Works

Our soft tissue laser will remove only the infected gum tissue lining the pocket wall. Any tartar is removed from the root surface. Then the laser disinfects the area, selectively killing bacteria. Finally, the small, sterile wound is sealed to the root surface with a dense fibrin clot.

Why Laser Periodontal Therapy Better?

Conventional therapy doesn’t eliminate all bacteria, so recurrence is a common problem. But laser therapy stops the infection and eradicates all bacteria, leaving the gum pocket disease-free. Beyond this, your tissue has time to heal and sometimes can even reattach to normal depth. As there is no need for incisions or stitches, there’s no bleeding or swelling, and the patient experiences little to no discomfort during the procedure. Also, patients with diabetes, bleeding disorders, or who are on medications like blood thinners, can be treated safely.
