ABOUT THE LASER
If you have “periodontal pockets” Laser Pocket “REPAIR” treatment is the standard care of today.
No cutting, no blades, no stitches are involved. It is a scientifically proven NON-SURGICAL technique used for the treatment of periodontal disease in patients. This laser treatment is extremely effective and far less invasive than conventional gum surgery. “REPAIR” therapy results in less bleeding, less pain, reduced swelling, less tissue removal, and no recovery time for you. LPT is one of the most important breakthroughs in 21st century dentistry and Dr Desai is the FIRST periodontist in Canada implementing this state of art into private periodontal practice which has proven to be as effective as conventional surgery for the treatment of periodontal disease with proper follow up.
The laser procedure starts with minimal local anesthetic to eliminate any possible discomfort. Next, a laser fibre like a human hair, is inserted into the pocket. Water & air powerwash and sterilizes the pocket, removes diseased tissue only, and finally reduces the amount of bacteria associated with periodontal disease. After the area is thoroughly cleaned, your body will begin to heal the area naturally.
Laser “REPAIR” Therapy doesn’t take a great deal of time to complete, usually completed in two x 2 hour sessions. The feeling of recovery is almost immediate. In fact, after the procedure you can drive your car, go back to work, or go home to your family.
Laser “REPAIR” Therapy is “erasing the blackboard of disease”, there’s no cutting and is safe for patients with health concerns such as diabetes, HIV, hemophilia, or those taking blood thinners such as aspirin vs traditional surgery – as no change in medication dosing is necessary for treatment. If you have had recommended traditional “FLAP SURGERY” for “POCKET ELIMINATION” there is a better alternative!
Laser Pocket “REPAIR” provides:
- Improved visualization of the detached gum pocket soft tissue linings to aid scaling & root planing for the removal of tartar (calculus)
- Re-attachement of the laser treated gum tissues to the roots by promoting the growth of new bone and/or root surfaces. Peer reviewed research proves predictable reattachment of gum tissue & bone growth to promote long term periodontal health & preserve teeth.
