I use a diode laser almost every day to treat soft tissue, which has shown excellent results. It effectively destroys bacteria at the cellular level and instantly sterilizes the surface.
Advantages of diode laser gum treatment:
It not only breaks down tartar or diseased tissues but also kills bacteria to protect against re-infection.
It reduces the time for healing and acts as a catalyst for new cell growth.
Without touching healthy areas, it works as precisely as possible on the desired area of the mucosa.
There are no age restrictions. It is suitable for both adults and children.
There is a minimal list of contraindications (tuberculosis, blood diseases, non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus).
What can we use the laser for?
Recontouring or gingivectomy: If you have an uneven gum line or inflammation around your tooth, the laser can help!
Implant recovery: When it’s time to place an abutment or implant crown, but your gum has overgrown.
Laser bacteria reduction: Do you have sore or bleeding gums? Let’s fix it!
Removal of the inflamed gum tissue in cases of periodontal disease (if you want to get rid of deep pockets).
What is laser gum treatment and how does a diode laser work?
This is a device that emits a thin beam of intense monochromatic light. As a result of its non-contact exposure to certain tissues (to a depth of up to 10 mm), they are heated at the molecular level and decay. The effect of this device depends on the correct setting (with a wavelength of 800 to 1,030 nm).
We know how to treat gum disease safely and painlessly. Schedule an appointment and take the first step toward a healthy, beautiful smile!
Stages of laser gum treatment
Examination and subsequent diagnosis (for the most accurate adjustment of the device and identification of contraindications).
Before the procedure, the patient puts on special glasses. They protect the eyes from intense monochromatic light.
Administration of anesthesia if necessary (only if the clinical situation is complex).
Adjustment of the device (wavelength, power, and some other parameters).
Treatment of the affected areas. The duration depends on the case (it can last from 15-20 minutes to 1-2 hours). As a result, the affected tissues are simultaneously eliminated and sterilized.
Recommendations for post laser gum treatment care
You can eat and drink after a few hours
Rinse your mouth with warm water and salt for 2 days after the procedure
Eat soft foods and do not smoke, at least for one week
Although laser therapy helps to eliminate soft tissue disease, it is extremely important that the patient maintain good personal oral hygiene habits and visit the dentist regularly for preventive checkups
Frequently Asked Questions
They have practically none. The list of absolute contraindications is minimal, and the list of problems it solves quickly, painlessly, and effectively is enormous (up to the treatment of periodontal pockets and chronic generalized periodontitis).
No, it can’t. The procedure is performed with microsurgical precision. The beam impacts only the affected soft tissue areas in a non-contact manner.
The use of laser, unlike traditional methods of treatment, does not require the use of a scalpel, anesthesia, or antibiotics, and makes the rehabilitation period faster (this is a so-called “non-invasive technique”).
Yes. We have seen many patients over the age of 70 who have successfully undergone total prosthetics on one or both jaws.
