That is why we are dedicated to providing our patients with the best available treatments to fight their gum disease, including laser bacteria reduction. This advanced therapy is a quick, comfortable, and effective way to battle periodontal infections and give your gums a chance to heal from the ravages of gum disease.

How Does Laser Bacteria Reduction Work?

The process is relatively quick, and no scalpels or sutures are required. You should be quite comfortable throughout the treatment; we may employ a topical or injected anesthetic to make sure you don’t feel a thing as we use the laser to fight the disease-causing bacteria in your gums.

The laser also stimulates the body’s natural healing response; after your treatment, your gums will have the opportunity they need to firmly reattach to your teeth. Your gums may be somewhat tender following your procedure, but you should feel much better within a few days to a week.
