Laser is used in dentistry in a non-invasive, pain free manner.
It can be used to provide bacterial reduction in your gums to assist with dental cleaning, to regenerate clinical attachment in deep pocket therapy, and in cases of Aggressive periodontitis. It is also very effective in treating painful lesions in the oral cavity, commonly seen in immunocompromised patients, such as cold sores, ulcers, hemangioma, and fibroma.
Furthermore, it can assist in producing better prognosis for other traditional dental procedures such as gingivectomy and gingivoplasty (reshaping your gums due to severe inflammation), crown lengthening, operculectomy, and frenectomy.
Laser also works very well for reducing pain instantly, through a non-invasive method, for chronic cold sores, especially in immunocompromised patients such as patients undergoing chemotherapy/cancer treatment.
