Laser Periodontal Disease Treatment in Six Steps

1. The first step is to find out how deep your periodontal pockets are, which is where bacteria hide, destroying the bone, connective tissue, and fibers that support your teeth. A dental ruler is used to gently measure how deep the pockets are and how much damage is occurring.

2. Now it is time to get the bacteria out of those pockets using the PerioLase® MVP-7™ dental laser. This state of the art tool is considered one of the leading and most trusted dental lasers available today. It pinpoints and wipes away bacteria deep under the gum line without harming healthy tissue the way a scalpel does. Less bleeding and irritation makes periodontal disease treatment faster and more tolerable than ever before.

3. To break up or denature the hardened calculus, or tartar, between teeth and under the gums, Dr. Williams may use the laser and then switch to using an ultrasonic scaler to finish the work.

4. Now that the bacteria and diseased tissue have been removed, Dr. Williams will create a barrier around your teeth to keep out new germs while you heal. The laser is used to create tiny blood clots around your teeth, which provides a natural way for your gums to defend themselves against reinfection.

5. Laser makes it possible for stimulate the reattachment of your connecting tissues instead of using stiches to sew the gum line back together. Dr. Williams just compresses the gums against the root surfaces, allowing them to reattach naturally on their own.

6. The last step in your laser periodontal disease treatment is to readjust your bite to make sure all of your teeth are still in good alignment. This step is very important for patients who have bone loss because their jaw can be more vulnerable to injury.
