How Laser Therapy Works
To define it in as simple a way as possible, laser therapy uses the technology behind energized light to precisely remove soft tissue in a patient’s mouth and gums. The main advantage to this treatment modality is that the beam of light that’s generated from the laser simultaneously sculpts and treats the affected area. The process has three main benefits to it over other treatments that have been used in the past. First, there is little to no bleeding involved – which also means there’s less pain. Second, laser therapy increases the healing time over other methods. And last, the laser automatically sterilizes the area that is being treated so the risk of infection is marginally reduced.
Zero Side Effects with Laser Therapy
Another great benefit to laser therapy apart from its ability to reduce the risk of infection is that there are no known side-effects to the treatment. And because the laser is designed to precision-target the areas of the gum to be treated for periodontal disease, the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD) lists this as an added patient benefit.
