Uses of lasers in gum disease

One of the more exciting applications of dental lasers is in their application in periodontal disease. For years now dentists on the leading edge of periodontal care have been devising ways to incorporate these excellent tools into their patient's care.

Our office has been using lasers as an adjunct to our periodontal program since 2004.

The recent addition of the dual laser Lares Powerlase has added an exciting new dimension to our periodontal care. Lasers are characterized by their wavelength; each type of laser having certain clinical advantages and disadvantages. Laser periodontal protocols take advantage of each machines characteristics but often are lacking due to the weakness inherent in each system. An advantage of our current laser is it has both wavelengths popular in gum disease care allowing us to take advantage of all the abilities of each device without the limitations of a single wavelength. We combine this with modern technology for genetic and bite analysis to result in a thorough, cost effective protocol.

For the patient in need of periodontal care this means...

  • Laser surgery for periodontal disease in fewer appointments
  • Personalized antimicrobial therapy
  • No scalpels
  • No sutures
  • Greatly reduced post operative pain
  • More rapid healing
  • Less invasive procedures
  • Laser disinfection of diseased periodontal pockets
  • Laser and piezoelectric assisted tartar removal  (no more scraping!)
  • Less expensive than traditional surgery
