Laser Periodontal Therapy

Laser treatment is an advanced technique for Dr. Hassan to treat periodontal (gum) disease. A laser light is used to gently remove harmful bacteria and disease tissue from the gum pocket. This allows the body to heal naturally so that the gum pockets improve and the teeth become more stable. The laser is a wonderful tool that will help many patients bring themselves to a more healthy state.

Dramatic Patient Benefits:

Dramatically less traumatic yet highly effective alternative to cut and sew gum surgery.
No cutting of the gum tissue with a scalpel and no stitches means easy recovery with minimal bleeding.
Preserves gum tissue instead of cutting it away.
Reduces root exposure and sensitivity.

Laser Periodontal Procedure

  • Perio probe indicates deep pocket.
  • Laser vaporizes bacteria, diseased tissue, pathologic proteins, and alerts doctor to the presence of tartar.
  • Special instruments used to remove root surface accretions.
  • Laser finishes debriding pocket and aids in coagulation.
  • Reattachment of gum tissue to clean root surface. Stable clot formed by laser creates a “closed system” such that new bacteria cannot enter.
  • Occlusal (Bite) trauma adjusted.
