Laser Periodontal Therapy in Birmingham, AL
Some Benefits of Laser Periodontal Therapy
There are many benefits of using a laser for treating periodontal disease and these include:
- Using a laser helps kill the bacteria in infected tissue without harming healthy tissue.
- The laser is able to remove infected material from deep in the periodontal pockets helping to sterilize these areas.
- Treatment is extremely gentle as it cuts away the diseased tissue, and any small blood vessels are immediately sealed or cauterized through a process called thermal coagulation.
- Laser surgery is far more precise than using a scalpel, preserving the maximum amount of healthy gum tissue.
