Laser Therapy

Laser Therapy Treatments

At Woodside Dental Care, we understand the importance advancements in dentistry can play in enhancing a patient’s experience and oral care outcomes. One such groundbreaking advancement is the use of laser therapy in conjunction with dental cleanings. Lasers have revolutionized dental cleanings by providing a more effective and precise means of destroying harmful oral bacteria.

What Is Laser Therapy?

Pockets in the gums that surround our teeth are an attractive environment for bacteria. As the bacteria multiply, they cause inflammation of the gums (periodontal disease) and can even enter the bloodstream. The bacteria can even be inhaled, entering our bodies through the lining of the bronchial tubes leading to our lungs. They also can be passed on to another person through intimate contact. This inflammation of the gums (it may or may not be painful) affects nearly 80% of adults in the US.

Recent studies link periodontal disease to the increased likelihood of heart disease, kidney failure, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, and stroke.

Laser therapy treatment decontamination in conjunction with dental cleanings is an efficient, quick, and effective way to destroy these bacteria and is recommended at each hygiene visit. Laser therapy is also used in conjunction with fluoride to aid patients with specific areas of heightened sensitivity.

Why Use Us for Laser Therapy Treatments?

There are several compelling reasons why laser therapy treatments in conjunction with regular dental cleanings should always be your preferred choice.

Destruction of Bacteria

During an appointment with one of our hygienists, the light energy of the laser will be focused on the pockets that surround the teeth effectively destroying the bacteria and decontaminating the area. The laser decontamination process is highly effective, non-invasive, painless, and normally only takes about 5-10 minutes.

Minimizes Discomfort

The pinpoint accuracy of dental lasers ensures that only the targeted areas are treated. This precision allows for a gentle, comfortable experience.

Reduced Bleeding and Swelling

The laser's precise nature promotes faster healing and minimizes bleeding and swelling, resulting in a quicker recovery period compared to conventional deep dental cleanings (scaling and root planning).

Sterilization and Gum Disease Prevention

Laser treatment sterilizes the treated areas by killing bacteria, reducing the risk of gum disease and other related health issues.
