When it comes to treating periodontal disease, the laser has multiple functions. Apart from being used for scaling and root planing, it helps lower the bacterial count and heal the periodontal wound. Biostimulation accelerates the regeneration of periodontal pockets and stimulates the production of connective tissue, which reduces the depth of periodontal pockets.
Reducing bacterial buildup and the depth of the periodontal pockets is crucial for managing gum disease and preventing it from further destroying the patient’s periodontal tissue.
After completing periodontal treatment, your dentist may suggest laser therapy. The best results are achieved through a combination of gingival curettage and laser treatment.
