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.
