Laser-assisted Periodontal Treatment at Magical Smiles is Painless and Effective

Plaque accumulated around teeth might lead to gum disease. Essentially, plaque is an invisible layer of germs. Brushing, flossing, or eating might cause your gums to swell or bleed as a defence mechanism against this particular bacterial infection. Gum disease is known as gingivitis at this stage. There are many ways to reverse gingivitis, such as regular dental visits and following strict home care practices.

It is possible to develop periodontitis, or periodontal disease if gingivitis is left untreated. You could be doing irreparable damage to your gums and the bones around your teeth without even realizing it.

There are various treatment methods available for gum disease, and one is Laser-Assisted Periodontal Treatment (LAPT). LAPT is a laser treatment used to treat infections in and around your teeth. The device emits frequency-controlled short bursts of laser energy. The affected tissue is removed, and any hidden bacteria there is eliminated. It’s a safe and painless procedure with a short recovery time.

Benefits of LAPT

The following are some of the advantages of LAPT over conventional gum disease surgery:

Why Choose Magical Smiles For Laser Gum Treatment in Melbourne

If you have periodontitis, a more severe form of gum disease, you may be in danger of losing your teeth.

The bone that holds your teeth in place is weakened by advanced gum disease. As the disease progresses, the bacteria might spread to neighbouring teeth. Teeth can become loose due to the deep pockets. It is possible to remove unhealthy gum tissue, eliminate bacteria, and have a quick, painless healing time using our laser gum therapy, called Laser-Assisted Periodontal Therapy (LAPT).

FAQs About Laser Gum Treatment

There is an assumption that laser therapy for periodontitis is expensive; however, this is not the case. Laser surgery costs vary but are generally comparable to traditional gum surgery procedures. A typical LAPT procedure in Australia costs between $500 and $550 for each quadrant. In most cases, a full-mouth restoration will cost you between $2,000 and $2,200.
Several studies have shown that laser gum surgery (LAPT) is a highly successful treatment for periodontal disease. Positive findings have been found from the trials, such as fewer tooth losses following laser surgical therapy. Additionally, laser dentistry has been found to aid periodontal patients in the process of periodontal regeneration by stimulating new tissue attachments between the gum and the bone following laser treatment.

You may be an excellent candidate for LAPT if you have any of the following issues:

If you’ve had deep cleanings in the past, but your gums and teeth still have an excessive amount of pocket depth. Additionally, patients suffering from moderate-to-severe gum disease will find LAPT gum surgery very beneficial. It is also a good treatment option for people who are afraid of the pain that comes with traditional surgery.

Gum disease can only be treated with LAPT by dentists who have been trained in the LAPT treatment protocol.
The procedure is split into four parts. During the initial procedure, the dental laser removes the lining from the pocket. After that, the tooth root is cleaned using hand equipment and an ultrasonic tool. After disinfecting the pocket with laser energy, it is then sealed completely. The gum tissue compresses against the teeth during the healing process, allowing them to reattach.
Coverage for periodontal disease treatment varies depending on the health insurance plan and the provider. To make sure your policy covers everything you need, check with your private health insurance provider and talk to your dentist about your health plans.
Options for sedation are available to help make treatments more comfortable for you. A local anesthetic is used to keep you from feeling any discomfort during your LAPT gum surgery. It is vital to use a local anesthetic to ensure your comfort while the dentist treats the infected spots in your gums. Other forms of sedation are also available if needed.
