The use of laser in dentistry has a wide range of applications. They are used to treat tooth decay, gum disease, inflammation, headaches, severe pain, biopsy (removal of lesions), minimize teeth discoloration, etc.
Gum disease or periodontal disease is a chronic inflammatory condition of the gums. It is caused due to the attack of disease-causing bacteria in the gums and bones of the jawbone. PerioLase® is a minimally invasive laser treatment that helps treat parts of the gums, ligaments, soft-tissues, and bones of the jawbone. The goodness of PerioLase® has made it the only FDA approved dental laser in the market. The PerioLase® would create a sterile and healthy environment for the regeneration of bone and gum tissues.
PerioLase® is a free-running, pulsed laser that is capable of emitting laser energy in a matter of seconds and not like a continuous stream of laser energy. It is a safe and effective means of restoring gum tissues and providing periodontal tissue therapy.
The dentist would first thoroughly clean the oral cavity with deep cleaning. This would help remove any signs of plaque or tartar from the surface and corners of teeth and gums, thereby making the oral cavity as clean as possible.
The procedure would follow by the dentist using the PerioLase® laser to spot any diseased tissues inside the gum pockets. It helps destroy the infection-causing bacteria without harming the healthy tissues of the oral cavity.
Post the procedure; the patient would experience reduced swelling and bleeding. Many patients have also reported better comfort and faster healing of the gum tissues as compared to the traditional methods of gum disease treatment.
