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
