Laser Dentistry

Periodontal disease, commonly known as gum disease, is a prevalent oral health condition affecting millions of people worldwide. It is caused by the buildup of plaque and bacteria on the teeth and gums, leading to inflammation, infection, and eventual tooth loss if left untreated. While traditional treatment options such as scaling and root planing are effective, laser dentistry has emerged as a valuable alternative for periodontal care.

At Hockley Dental, we recognize the importance of providing our patients with the latest advancements in dental technology. That’s why we offer laser dentistry as a safe and effective treatment option for periodontal disease. Here are some of the key benefits of laser dentistry in periodontal care:

  1. Non-invasive: Laser dentistry is a non-invasive treatment option, meaning that it does not require any incisions or stitches. This reduces the risk of complications and allows for a quicker recovery time.
  2. Precise and targeted: Laser technology allows dentists to target specific areas of the gums and teeth, leaving surrounding tissue untouched. This precision results in less bleeding and discomfort during and after the procedure.
  3. Reduced healing time: Because laser dentistry is non-invasive, there is typically less bleeding, swelling, and discomfort after the procedure. This means that patients can resume their daily activities more quickly than with traditional treatment options.
  4. Minimal pain: Laser dentistry is often less painful than traditional treatments, as the laser cauterizes the tissue as it cuts, reducing bleeding and post-treatment discomfort.
  5. Promotes healing: Laser technology promotes the regeneration of healthy tissue, helping to restore the gums to their optimal health. This promotes a healthier mouth and a brighter smile.

At Hockley Dental, our team of experienced dental professionals is dedicated to providing our patients with the highest quality of care. We are proud to offer laser dentistry as a valuable treatment option for periodontal disease.
