CO2 Micropulse Laser
One of the essential elements in the successful treatment of periodontal disease is the use of a low-energy, soft tissue laser. Because of its low power, the energy penetrates the infected gums only a few cell layers deep, killing the bacteria embedded in those tissue cells. It is also safe to use our specialized laser around the titanium dental implants, as this laser does not heat the metal and, therefore, does not affect the bonding formed between the implant and the surrounding bone.
While the emitted amount of energy does not cause damage to the human tissue, it is lethal to bacteria and other microorganisms. Besides eradicating pathogens causing periodontal disease, the laser vaporizes toxic debris and bacterial byproducts trapped deep in gum pockets (infected gums detached from adjacent teeth) and between teeth. The laser also generates an electromagnetic field, which stimulates healthy gum tissue regeneration, reduces gum pockets and provides rapid healing. The procedure is painless and the results are evident the very next day.
