What is laser bacterial reduction?
At any given time, there are 10-50 million bacteria living in your mouth — most good, some bad. Proper brushing, flossing, and dental hygiene visits help fight bad bacteria and keep your mouth healthy. But sometimes, it’s not enough. Left for too long, bacteria can cause tooth decay, gum disease, and more.
Laser bacterial reduction is a modern solution for fighting bad bacteria. This painless procedure takes 10 minutes at most and reduces the bacterial count in your mouth for up to 6 weeks.
Benefits of a laser bacterial reduction treatment include:
- Reduced risk of cross-contamination within the mouth during cleaning and treatments
- Immune system boost and overall improvement to your health
- Periodontal tissue stimulation, making your gums more resistant to infection
- Fast, non-invasive, and painless
