Laser technology generates a beam of highly concentrated light. Having laser treatment or surgery may sound like something to be concerned about but it truly is the highest technology that offers you many benefits as a dental patient.

Laser surgery is used for Periodontal Disease for many reasons.

Take a look at this video that explains many of the reasons for laser surgery.

Using the controlled beam of heat and light allows your Periodontist to clean deep inside the periodontal pockets, remove infections, and perform gum surgery and more. The laser is even able to destroy viruses inside of your mouth and sterilize the infected area.

The benefits of using a laser to treat your Periodontal Disease goes beyond medical benefits. Most patients are much more comfortable during treatment when a laser is used, and they experience less bleeding and infection issues afterwards.
