Laser Assisted Periodontal Therapy

Laser Assisted Periodontal Therapy at Advanced Dentistry

Our brand new, state of the art, 940nm ezlase™ soft tissue diode laser from BIOLASE can be used to treat periodontal disease.  It can be used at very low and safe power settings that allow us to remove diseased tissue while leaving healthy tissue alone, at the same time killing bacteria that cause disease and biostimulating the periodontal pocket.

Biostimulation at low power levels with a diode laser can increase circulation, collagen formation, and fibroblastic (tissue forming) and osteoblastic (bone forming) activity. The laser actually allows us to kick-start the healing process at the bottom of the periodontal pocket.  The fact that the laser can remove diseased tissue, kill the bacteria that cause the disease, and stimulate healing, gives our patients a big advantage in the treatment of periodontal disease over traditional methods.

If you have not seen a dentist in over 6 months, do not floss on a daily basis or notice that you have sore, inflamed, bleeding gums when you brush or floss your teeth, you may be a candidate for laser assisted periodontal therapy.  If you are interested in seeing a dentist that is committed to delivering the most current and modern care in the fight against periodontal disease, give our Redwood City dental office a call at 650-474-0551 or click here to set up an appointment today.
