Laser hygiene therapy sessions
In some cases, we may recommend several laser therapy sessions in series to address the problem adequately, depending on the severity of the oral infection. During the initial laser therapy appointment, one of our our dental hygienists will determine an exact number of sessions that will be required to eradicate the oral infection and prevent re-occurrence. The number of bleeding areas will determine the pocket measurements. The more pervasive the number of bleeding areas are along with the deeper the pockets - the higher the propensity and severity of the oral infection. In these scenarios you may require additional sessions in order to eliminate the infection.
Quick, comfortable and minimal discomfort!
Our laser procedure is a non-invasive and very comfortable. The main aim and purpose of laser therapy is to help the gum tissues to be free of disease preventing re-attachment and re-occurence. While surgery may still be recommended for advanced periodontal disease, laser therapy sessions are a great option to prevent oral infection, hence circumventing the need for surgery.
Periodontal disease is a risk to your health
Periodontal disease is a chronic bacterial infection which enters the bloodstream and travels along vein and capillary pathways to major organs where new infections can manifest. The latest research reveals that this condition may contribute to the development of:
- Heart and Stroke disease
- Pre-term births
- Low birth weight babies
