Perio Disease

Gum disease (Pyorrhea) is an infection of the soft tissues of the gums surrounding the teeth. Traditional gum therapy involves deep cleaning the roots of teeth underneath the gums with the aid of fine instruments. However, the reach of these instruments is limited. The process can result in pain, sensitivity and soreness in the treated site post the procedure.

Dental Lasers have truly revolutionized the way dental treatment is done. Here are some of the benefits of the system Biolase Epic X which we use at Dental Folks,

  • Disinfection and Detoxification of tissues
  • Lasers not only assist in removal of bacterial by a method called ablation but also eliminate their toxins and prevent bacterial colonization.
  • Minimally invasive with better patient co-operation
  • Decreased post treatment pain
  • Faster Healing (Biomodulation Therapy)
  • The Laser gum cleaning session is totally painless, once teeth are cleaned thoroughly, Laser light is directed into the diseased areas of the gums known as “pockets” to eliminate the bacteria and thoroughly sterilize the tissues. The process is quick, with lesser post procedure sensitivity, soreness and faster healing time.
  • Less chances of sensitivity after treatment.
  • Promotes Bone regeneration
  • Once the gum infection is treated, bone regeneration is promoted thereby increasing the functionality of the teeth making them firmer.
