Types of Dental Laser Cleaning: What You Need to Know

Dental laser cleaning is a relatively new and advanced treatment method that has been proven to be extremely beneficial for treating gum disease during deep cleanings. There are two main types of laser dentistry procedures: hard-tissue laser procedures, which are performed on the teeth, and soft-tissue laser dentistry, which is performed on the gums. A deep cleaning with a laser does not require a dental professional to use special dental tools. Instead, they'll use a dental laser to gently break up plaque and tartar, a process that is much gentler on the teeth and gums. The benefits of deep cleaning with a laser include minimal swelling, minimal discomfort, minimal or no bleeding, and a much faster recovery time.

First, the hygienist will use a laser to completely remove the inflamed and infected gum tissue surrounding the teeth. Then, they will use a series of dental instruments to physically clean plaque and tartar below the gum line and ensure that all tooth and root surfaces are free of spots where bacteria can remain. After the procedure is finished, the patient will be sent home with instructions to monitor their healing process at home between visits. Tissue that has been removed with a laser will regenerate during this healing period. Regular dental cleanings are still recommended for most people every year, but depending on each individual's particular situation, they may need to do it more or less frequently. Recent advances in the dental field have made it possible to introduce lasers into regular dental cleaning as well.

This involves using light technology so that no physical part of the device comes into contact with sensitive tissue. If your dentist or dental hygienist has recommended deep cleaning instead of normal cleaning, you have been diagnosed with periodontitis, also known as gum disease. Unlike deep cleaning, regular dental cleaning is a much simpler process, as there isn't as much buildup of plaque and tartar to remove from your teeth. We can schedule a deep cleaning with laser dentistry so that your teeth are free of any buildup of tartar or plaque that has accumulated over time. Laser dentistry involves the use of lasers for a wide range of dental procedures, including root canals.
