Laser Bacterial Reduction
We are constantly striving to advance the standard of patient care in our office. One way we’re improving the oral health of our patients is by offering a new procedure that can be included in your regular professional teeth cleanings.
Introducing: Laser Bacterial Reduction!
The laser decontamination process is painless and takes about 5 minutes to complete. We highly recommend you take advantage of this procedure for the following reasons:
- It kills the bacteria that cause gum disease. Gum disease affects approximately 80% of adults. It has been linked to over 52 diseases, including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, and low birth weight in babies.
- Prevention of cross contamination of infections in your mouth. When we decontaminate, we minimize the chance of inadvertently moving bacterial infection from one area of your mouth to another.
- Reduction or elimination of bacteria. Most patients experience some bleeding during the professional teeth cleaning process, and that blood may carry bacteria (pathogens) from our mouth to other areas of our body. When this happens, our risk of the diseases linked to gum disease increases.
