You’re probably familiar with the idea that lasers have revolutionized many industries, but were you aware that they’ve even expanded into dental care? LAPT is the latest advancement in Periodontal Infection Removal. The Bluewave Diode Laser uses specific wavelengths that targets and destroys diseased tissue and bacteria from periodontal pockets.

Benefits of using the laser:

  • Recovery and healing times are shorter.
  • Lasers can target the diseased areas precisely and accurately.
  • There’s less bleeding, pain, and swelling because periodontal laser therapy is less invasive.

LAPT is not a standalone treatment but works in conjunction with traditional deep cleanings. With laser assisted deep cleanings, your hygienist uses the laser to access and remove the inflamed gum tissue from around your tooth’s root followed by removing tartar and plaque that has built up below the gum line. The precision of the laser allows the hygienist to remove only the diseased tissue. This results in less post-operative discomfort and faster recovery time.

After laser therapy, your mouth will need time to heal and regenerate. During this healing process, your gums should be infection-free and be able to tighten back up around your tooth. If you have any question about this advanced procedure to restore gum health, call us or book an appointment!
