Periodontal Therapy vs. Laser Periodontal Therapy

Laser periodontal therapy has proven to be an effective way to treat gum disease. In fact, many Ajax dentists believe that laser periodontal therapy is more effective than traditional periodontal therapy.

With laser periodontal therapy, instead of using the typical treatment methods for gum disease, a small laser clears away the infected gum around the tooth, giving the Ajax dentist enough space to remove the plaque, tartar, and bacteria build up on the tooth. The laser is also used to heat the healthy gum tissue to form a clot around the tooth. This creates a healthy environment for the tooth and gum to heal. The patient will experience less pain, swelling, chance for infection, and a faster recovery time.

Given these advantages, you should definitely consider laser periodontal therapy. It is less intrusive than the common methods of treating gum disease. One of these is called scaling back and root planing. The dentist inserts and tool to scale back the tartar and plaque and then smooths out the rough spots on the tooth.
