Laser Therapy

Laser Therapy

Lasers (Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation) Therapy have revolutionized multiple industries, and oral care is no exception. Periodontal or gum disease is an infection of the supporting tissues and bone that hold your teeth in place. The condition affects mainly adults in their 30s and 40s, is usually caused by:

- Poor oral hygiene
- Smoking
- Chronic illnesses, such as diabetes
- Certain medications
- Genetic susceptibility

Typical treatment for periodontal disease is Scaling and Root Planning (SRP), which is a non-surgical method of cleaning the surfaces of the teeth and their root which may be exposed due to gum recession. This removes tartar, plaque and bacteria and promotes the healthy regeneration of the gum tissue.

Alternatively, the periodontist may perform gum flap surgery, which, surgically the gum tissue is cut and flapped back to allow deep cleaning around the root’s underneath. The gum tissue is then sutured back into place to heal.

How Laser Therapy Works

In periodontal laser therapy, the dentist uses a dental laser to access and remove the inflamed gum tissue from around the root of the tooth. When the infected tissue is removed and the root is exposed, the root scaling begins. This involves scraping off the calculus and plaque built up below the gum-line and around the root. The dentist then smooths the root with instruments to remove any rough spots that might attract bacteria and cause future infections. The area between the gum and the root can then regenerate during the healing process.

Benefits

  • Procedures performed using soft tissue dental lasers may not require sutures (stitches).
  • Certain procedures do not require anaesthesia.
  • Minimises bleeding because the high-energy light beam aids in the clotting (coagulation) of exposed blood vessels, thus inhibiting blood loss.
  • Bacterial infections are minimised because the high-energy beam sterilises the area being worked on.
  • Damage to surrounding tissue is minimised.
  • Wounds heal faster and tissues can be regenerated.
