Laser Assisted Periodontal Treatment with Biolase (LAPT)
Laser periodontal treatment has proven to be an exceptional alternative to traditional surgical treatments. The laser beam can be precisely directed to only the tissues needing treatment, and the way it works virtually eliminates bleeding and sterilizes the area at the same time. This translates to higher quality treatment, improved outcome, and greater comfort for you.
Laser Bacteria Reduction
We can now use laser technology to reduce the anaerobic bacteria along the lining of the mouth and gums. Anaerobic bacteria can cause a number of problems, from bad breath to serious infections. Laser bacteria reduction can decrease bacteria from 10/9 t to 10/2 t for three or four weeks.
