A Look into How the LANAP Dental Laser Can Improve the Health of Your Gums

For many years, if you needed dental care for advanced periodontal (gum) disease, you would have needed to undergo uncomfortable or painful surgical procedures to correct it. These surgeries resulted in long recovery times as your gums would heal back to health. Claire Cho, DDS, believes in a gentler approach to gum surgery for patients in the Aliso Viejo, California area. Dr. Cho utilizes the LANAP laser for gum surgery necessary to restore gums to health with minimal pain, discomfort, and recovery times.

Here are some ways a dental laser could help improve your dental health.

Bacteria Removal

Several forms of bacteria can lead to periodontal disease. When these bacteria are not eliminated, they will continue to harm your gum tissues. Instruments, such as the LANAP laser, are used to completely eradicate these harmful bacteria so they can no longer cause harm to your gums.

Irritant Removal

Tartar, also called calculus, is a hard substance that builds up on your teeth over time when your teeth are not properly cleaned on a regular basis. Tartar forms both above and below the gum line, becoming a reservoir to which harmful bacteria and plaque can attach. When removed by a LANAP dental laser, there will no longer be a surface to which these bacteria can cling, allowing your gums to heal. Best of all, when performed with the LANAP laser, there is minimal discomfort and a shorter recovery time.

Periodontal Pocket Reduction

When your gums start to pull back from your teeth, an area called a periodontal pocket is formed. As these periodontal pockets deepen, you will find it more difficult to effectively clean your teeth and gums. The LANAP dental laser can be utilized to reduce periodontal pockets, making brushing and flossing easier and more effective.

The LANAP dental laser has become very successful among patients in Alisa Viejo, California, looking to restore their dental health.
