We Offer Laser-Assisted Periodontal Therapy (LAPT) For Deep Cleaning Around Teeth and Gums to Our Hampden Patients
Our team is Committed to Staying Current with All the Latest Dental Technologies
Your dental team at 58 Dental is committed to providing a superior level of dental care to you, your family, and your friends.
This commitment requires staying current on all the latest science, research and technology available to provide the highest level of care possible. Lasers are now being used safely and comfortably during laser teeth cleanings. The dental laser treatment decontaminates the gum tissue and pockets around the teeth with a scalpel. The laser is an excellent addition for patients who require a dental deep cleaning around the teeth and below the gums. This procedure is called Laser-Assisted Periodontal Therapy (LAPT).
Procedures Performed with this Laser Include:
- Cold Sore Treatment
- Canker Sore Treatment
- Implant Uncovering
- Pre-prosthetic Tissue Augmentation
What are the Major Benefits of LAPT?
Bacteria Reduction or Elimination – During the dental cleaning process, and during normal brushing and flossing, most patients will have some areas that may bleed. This allows bacteria which is present in all of our mouths to flood into the bloodstream and sometimes settle in weakened areas of our body. Research shows that these bacteria which cause gum disease have now been linked to a growing number of other diseases. Dental laser therapy allows us to remove the bacteria and reduce the bacterial flow into your bloodstream.
Cross Contamination Prevention – Infections in one area of your mouth can be transmitted to other areas. Dental laser treatment minimizes the chance that we may inadvertently pick up the bacterial infection in one area of your mouth and transfer it to others.
To Kill Periodontal Disease Bacteria – Dental laser treatment can stop infections caused by bacteria before they cause further physical destruction or loss of attachment around your teeth. 58 Dental loves to help our patients be proactive and protective of their remaining teeth. Dental laser treatment fits that bill.
