A Short History of Laser for Periodontitis Treatment and More

Laser is used every day within a variety of healthcare disciplines, including dentistry, which the Food and Drug Administration cleared in 1991. Today it is used to make dental procedures easier and more successful than certain treatments of the past while providing a much more comfortable experience for the patient. Doctors can effectively diagnose and treat diseases of both the soft and hard oral tissues, including gums, lips, tongue, enamel, dentin, and bone with a single laser beam. Laser translated means, “Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation.” To generate laser during a procedure, there needs to be a source of electricity, a mirror to direct the beam, a semiconductor to release specific light wavelengths, and a fiber optic system to transport it to the target. In dentistry, laser provides a single wavelength of light, compared with the sun that projects several, that can be used to pinpoint and treat a target area with extreme precision without causing any contact or damage to nearby healthy tissue.

The PerioLase® MVP-7™ Laser for Periodontal Disease Treatment

Dr. Williams uses the FDA cleared PerioLase® MVP-7™ to perform laser dentistry because it is proven one of the safest and most effective laser tools on the market today. This tool is unique because it is specifically designed to pinpoint bacteria and wipe them out faster and more accurately without ever touching your healthy gum tissue. This is remarkable because it reduces patient discomfort significantly and gives Dr. Williams a more predictable outcome, including new bone development around the teeth, which is unprecedented. Medical research shows that laser therapy stimulates bone cells around the teeth, adding support and strength they need to keep them in place.
