Laser Periodontal Treatment

Laser periodontal therapy is another treatment option for those who have periodontal disease. This is usually performed by periodontists using a dental laser to remove infected gum tissue which will expose the root surface of teeth enabling a better access to the clinician to do tartar removal in these areas and allow for reattachment of gum tissues. Some advantages that this procedure offers are bleeding, pain and swelling of gums are not so bad, unlike procedures that would use a scalpel and most importantly faster healing of the areas.
