Smile by Science: The Benefits of Laser Dental Cleanings
Laser dentistry has created miraculous opportunities when it comes to improving your oral health. Dr. Ania Mohelicki harnesses the power of diode laser energy to deliver unparalleled laser dental cleanings that can boost protection in healthy patients and provide more comprehensive treatment for periodontal disease.
Read on to discover how lasers are unlocking new potential when it comes to enhancing patients’ oral hygiene.
Laser Energy Eliminates Bacteria on a Deeper Level
A soft-tissue laser uses pulses of energy to both clean healthy tissue and eliminate disease. Healthy patients can ward off infection, tooth decay, and gum inflammation by undergoing a laser-assisted dental cleaning.
For patients with periodontal disease, the two-fold benefits of laser dental cleanings promote deeper healing and rejuvenation.
No matter how well you care for your teeth, the average mouth has over 700 species of microbes and houses millions of bacteria. While not all of these bacteria are harmful, the ones that are need to be continually removed to prevent cavities and gum disease.
How Lasers Improve Dental Hygiene
The beauty of laser dental cleaning lies in a process called “delayed recolonization,” which means bacteria eliminated from the mouth stay absent for a longer period of time than they do after a regular cleaning. Because of this, the gum tissue has more time to heal and strengthen.
Laser dentistry deep cleans the gingival pockets and removes damaged tissue through laser-assisted periodontal therapy. It can also sterilize tooth roots and even be used in teeth whitening and reshaping treatments, among other procedures.
Patients looking to improve their oral health with the latest dental technology will likely find that laser dental cleanings are the perfect option. Furthermore, those with periodontal disease may also qualify for deep cleaning to aid in their gum restoration.
