New Service-Laser Dental Cleanings!

Millenium Laser Fiber

Are you behind schedule with your dental cleaning? So many of us are, and as we return to practice, we are seeing a tremendous amount of inflammation, bleeding gums, increasing pocket depths- overall a recurrence of periodontal disease. We know that tartar can re-form on your teeth in as little as ten days after your professional cleaning. We also know that the bacteria that cause periodontal (gum) disease, recolonize and return in three months. So if you missed a cleaning, due to the stay-at-home mandate, chances are you are at increased risk for gum disease. 

How does a Laser Dental Cleaning work?

Laser Dental Cleaning, also known as Laser Pocket Disinfection (LPD), is an advanced treatment option which is performed after your traditional Periodontal Supportive Therapy. This service can benefit people who need a little bit more than their periodic cleaning, preserving the health of their teeth and gums, ultimately preventing tooth loss.

Dr. Bogart uses a Piezo ultrasonic scaler with prescription strength antimicrobial irrigation, hand instrumentation, followed by tooth polishing. She then uses the Periolase MVP-7 Laser to detoxify and disinfect your gum pockets. The fiber of the laser is so thin, it gently goes below your gum. The laser kills millions of harmful bacteria and toxins which live between your teeth and gums, and can cause inflammation, tissue destruction, bone loss, and tooth loss. This is a non-invasive, quick and painless procedure that requires no anesthetic.
