There are several benefits to choosing laser therapy treatment
Recovery and healing times are shorter. Laser therapy is less invasive than traditional surgical methods, therefore there is significantly less bleeding, pain, and swelling.
Laser treatment can target the diseased areas precisely and accurately, removing only infected tissues and bacteria like no other method can. They are also excellent at reducing the overall bacterial in the mouth and improving bad breath.
Laser therapy treatment stimulates tissue healing and cell regeneration – called photobiomodulation. Lasers also increase collagen production and prevents further tissue destruction and tissue inflammation for up to 7 weeks post treatment.
Modern, Non-Invasive Care with Laser Dental Therapy.
Laser therapy is a non-surgical treatment that offers less pain, less cost, and less downtime.
Laser therapy is a conservative and non-traumatic approach for treating moderate to severe gum disease and provides an excellent alternative to surgery because it there is no cutting or stitching and therefor significantly reduces discomfort.
Lasers are unique because they can specifically target and treat diseased tissue only while leaving healthy tissue unaffected. Your laser trained dental hygienist inserts a tiny laser fibre that uses light energy into the affected tissues to destroy the bacteria and promote faster tissue healing.
One of the biggest advantages of laser therapy is that the procedures can be performed with much less discomfort and less postoperative pain than conventional surgical methods. This is due to the lasers ability to be tissue specific and to seal off nerve endings and blood vessels during treatment.
Laser therapy works in conjunction with conventional dental hygiene methods known as ‘scaling and polishing’.
Performed under local anaesthetic, your dental hygienist inserts a tiny laser fibre between the tooth and the gum, destroying the bacteria that cause gum disease and eliminating any diseased or infected tissue from the periodontal pocket. The tooth is then thoroughly cleaned of plaque and tartar, and the laser is then used again to create a stable, firm blood clot to seal the pocket and promote faster healing of your gums.
Lasers are unique in their ability as they only target diseased tissue, whilst improving and retaining healthy tissue. They also assist with the formation of a fibrin clot between the tooth and gum to initiate attachment, allowing the patient’s own immune system to assist in the healing process.
Depending on the severity and stage of disease, 2-4 treatments may be required.
Advanced Hygiene Treatment
Laser bacterial reduction therapy is used to drastically reduce the amount of bacteria in your mouth. It also aids in healing and repairing tissues and can significantly improve bad breath.
This treatment is a painless addition to your regular dental hygiene appointment, known as a ‘scale and polish’. It takes approximately 5 – 10 minutes to complete and no anaesthetic is required.
Laser bacterial reduction therapy is also used to successfully reduce inflammation and prevent gum disease.
If you have had gum disease in the past, laser bacterial reduction therapy will assist in the remission of the disease.
Laser therapy can be used on anyone; there are no contraindications. It is safe for children, orthodontic patients, pregnant mothers, compromised or complicated medical histories, cancer patients etc.
It takes approximately 7 weeks for the bacteria to recolonise after this therapy is completed, so the effects last long after your treatment has finished.
Cold Sores Treatments
Cold sores (oral herpetic lesions) can be uncomfortable and inconvenient (not to mention highly contagious!). They tend to break out at the most inconvenient time. They generally break out in response to trauma, overexposure to sun or whenever physical or psychological stress levels rise. The good news is cold sores can be treated with laser therapy.
Laser treatment is extremely quick and effective at treating cold sores. There is virtually zero discomfort during or following laser treatment of a cold sore. Laser therapy destroys the virus that is responsible for the outbreak, and nerve endings are cauterized. Any symptoms such as burning, tingling, itching subside instantly. The lesion instantly retracts, and healing is initiated at an accelerated time.
No numbing or anaesthesic is required. The only sensation you might feel during the treatment is a slight warm feeling.
Laser treatment immediately improves the discomfort associated with cold sores and has been proven to heal the lesion 70% faster than a non-treated cold sore.
If you get in for cold sore treatment early such as when you first feel that tingling sensation, you can prevent a full-blown sore appearing.
Mouth Ulcer Treatment
Mouth ulcers are common, but painful. They can make eating, drinking, and talking very uncomfortable.
While mouth ulcers usually heal themselves after a week or two, laser treatment can accelerate healing and improve any associated discomfort immediately.
Treatment is quick and painless.
