TLC Escondido Dental is pleased to feature cutting-edge dental lasers in our office to help fight gum disease and improve your oral health. If you have been diagnosed with periodontal disease, Dr. Jorge Reyes and Dr. Samuel Lee may recommend laser bacterial reduction as a good option for your oral health and smile.
What Is Laser Bacterial Reduction?
Laser bacterial reduction (LBR) is a type of laser periodontal treatment used to fight gum disease, improve your oral health and reduce your risk of infection. This advanced dental laser uses low-level laser therapy (LLLT) to target and eliminate the disease-causing bacteria in your mouth, especially those residing in gum pockets and tooth surfaces.
Laser Bacterial Reduction Procedure
When you receive LBR, our dentists, periodontist or dental hygienist will use a specially designed laser device to irradiate the affected areas of your mouth. This laser emits a light which penetrates the soft oral tissues, killing bacteria and reducing the bacterial population of your mouth. This laser is powerful, but safe for use. Your treatment can be completed quickly and comfortable in a single treatment session.
Benefits of LBR
Benefits of LBR include:
- A fast, comfortable and noninvasive treatment option
- Reduced risk of infection and inflammation
- More effective treatment for individuals with medical conditions such as diabetes or who have received other dental procedures
- Improved overall health
- Less risk of complications following treatment
- Faster healing following treatment
