Fighting Periodontal Bacteria With Laser Treatment

Thanks to the use of lasers, our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice can offer a better experience to patients in need of care for periodontal disease. The LANAP protocol relies on lasers to carefully remove damaged and infected tissues from your gums. By performing this service with lasers instead of a scalpel, the recovery time is reduced, and your healthy gums can remain in good condition. The greater accuracy offered by laser treatment can be particularly beneficial when it comes to addressing bacteria-riddled areas near tissues that are supporting your teeth. Once bacteria are removed, your gums have the chance to heal, and rebuild healthy tissues. (more…)
