What Exactly is Laser Teeth Cleaning?

When patients have gum disease, a space forms between the gum and the tooth, providing a perfect place for plaque and tartar to build up and bacteria to destroy the gum. Traditional cleaning methods include scraping between the gum line and tooth to remove the built up plaque and tartar. This helps the gum reattach to the tooth.


This traditional type of cleaning can come with some negatives, including:

Can take a long time

Can be uncomfortable

May cause swelling and bleeding

May cause discomfort around the teeth

However, lasers offer the answer to these problems. The advantages of using a laser for dental cleanings include:

Reduced discomfort and swelling after the cleaning

No sounds or feelings of scraping on the teeth

Possibly less anxiety for the patient
