LASER DENTAL TREATMENT IN BANGALORE |
What is LASER Gum surgery?
It is a non-invasive, gentle alternative to the dreaded scalpel and suture procedure. If you have gum disease that has gone from mild to severe ask your dental professional about the laser treatment method. Did you know that laser periodontal surgery eliminates up to 99% of bacteria that causes gum disease? Another advantage is that it is able to spare the loss of gum tissue. The best part is there is no pain because no cutting is involved.
The laser has a tiny laser fiber about as thick as three strands of hair. It works by producing an invisible beam of energy. Laser use is growing very popular among dentists and patients because they are substantially less traumatic.
Periodontal laser techniques
Initially your dentist will set up a consultation to explain and demonstrate how the laser works. He/she will take x-rays to determine the severity of the infection and then schedule the procedure. When you arrive for the procedure you will be given a local anesthetic and the treatment will begin as follows:
1. The pocket depth along side of tooth is measured with a periodontal tool.
2. Bacteria and diseased tissue in the pocket are eliminated with the laser.
3. Special tools are used to remove tartar.
4. The pockets are cleaned, sterilized, and sealed with the laser.
5. A "closed system" is created by pressing gum tissues against the sterile root surface.
6. To reduce trauma from clenching or chewing the teeth are adjusted.
7. The healing process begins as new gum attachment takes place and new bone and ligaments form.
You will probably be surprised (maybe disappointed) to know that after the procedure you can return back to work immediately. Laser periodontal surgery is not associated with significant bleeding, swelling, infection, or post-op discomfort. The choice is obviously the pain free method.
Is the procedure approved? Laser Periodontal Surgery is FDA approved, and happens to be the only soft tissue patent involving laser treatment. However lasers will damage roots if used improperly to remove calculus below the gum line. Also the price you pay to have the benefits of laser surgery is more than the traditional manual method.
