Laser Gum LAPT Treatment
What is Laser-Assisted Periodontal Treatment (LAPT)?
Gum disease occurs when plaque builds up around teeth. Plaque is made up of a film of bacteria. Your body attempts to fight off this form of bacterial infection by causing the gum tissues to swell or bleed when you brush, floss or eat. This first stage of gum disease is referred to as gingivitis. Gingivitis can be reversed with good oral hygiene, like regular cleanings and stringent home care routines.
If your gingivitis goes untreated, it will become periodontitis or periodontal disease, an advanced gum disease. The gums and bones around your teeth will be destroyed, and you may not even be aware that it’s happening.
There are different options for the treatment of gum disease, one of which is Laser-Assisted Periodontal Treatment (LAPT). LAPT uses laser to address infections around your teeth. The laser releases short bursts of laser energy at precise frequencies. In turn, the infected tissue is removed, and the bacteria that cause the infection are killed off. It’s safe with a faster recovery time, and your procedure is virtually painless.
Benefits of LAPT
Among the benefits of LAPT over traditional gum disease surgery are:
