Gum disease (periodontal disease) is caused by a bacterial infection in the periodontal pockets surrounding your teeth. These areas are very difficult to keep clean, and the general treatment to remove the bacteria is root planing and scaling. The use of laser dentistry can effectively disinfect the inside of the periodontal pockets after a thorough root planing procedure has been performed. The laser generates a beam of concentrated energy that disinfects gum tissue with great precision. It allows the area to remain cleaner longer, which ultimately promotes healing of the tissue as compared to conventional methods.
