After undergoing a dental laser cleaning, it is important to take certain precautions to ensure a successful recovery. For the first 24 hours, it is best to stick to a liquid or soft food diet and avoid spicy foods, French fries, popcorn, and pretzels. Additionally, it is important to avoid using straws and chewing in the area where the laser was used. To clean the area, use a swab dipped in Listerine.
After the first 24 hours of healing, brush and floss adjacent teeth normally and gently clean the area with the swab. Periodontal laser therapy is a procedure that uses a laser to access and remove inflamed gingival tissue from around the root of the tooth. This technology is based on emissions-based soft tissue laser emissions and can be experienced at a nearby dental office. It is also important to avoid strenuous physical activity for at least 24 hours after surgery. This will help reduce the risk of postpartum and ensure that the healing process is not interfered with.
