Pocket Sterilization with Laser Treatment

Laser therapy for gum disease involves sterilizing infected gum pockets and creating an opportunity for your gums to reattach to your teeth. The process is as follows:

  • A laser is used to eliminate infected tissue from affected gum pockets.
  • Infected tissue is removed, exposing the roots of affected teeth.
  • Affected roots are cleaned.
  • A laser is used to create a seal and stimulate healing of the bone and tissues.

Laser gum disease treatment can have several advantages for patients. Not only can the laser sterilize infected areas, it causes less bleeding and is associated with a lower risk of complications than traditional approaches involving scalpels and less precise instruments.

What to Expect with Gum Disease Laser Therapy

Many people do not associate lasers with dentistry, so patients often have questions when considering the procedure. Some common questions patients have about this therapy include:

  • Is laser periodontal therapy painful?Laser dentistry is less invasive than other methods of cleaning gum pockets. Anesthesia is not needed, and patients report minimal discomfort.
  • Is laser periodontal treatment effective?The laser allows Dr. Salmassian to kill and remove the harmful bacteria that cause periodontitis. Sterilizing your gum pockets in this way gives your teeth and gums an opportunity to heal.
  • What are the benefits of laser gum disease treatment?Use of a laser allows Dr. Salmassian to address affected areas with precision, without causing damage to the surrounding tissues and teeth. Preserving your healthy teeth and tissues reduces recovery time. Additionally, the more healthy teeth you have, the better equipped you are to enjoy ongoing oral wellness.
