Dual Wavelength Laser Light Therapy

Happy young couple

Gum disease can wreak havoc on your smile, and for years patients have relied on painful surgeries to restore their gum health. Dual Wavelength Laser Light Therapy uses light energy to vaporize damaged tissues and clear infections from your teeth and gums. Inspiration Dental in Riverview, FL, offers laser therapy for periodontal disease treatment and everyday dentistry to reduce discomfort while restoring your oral health.

Treating periodontal disease 

While periodontal disease is preventable with good hygiene and routine trips to the dentist, it remains the most usual cause of tooth loss in adults. These infections can also impact your heart health and spread to other areas of your body, so prompt treatment is crucial. Once pathogenic bacteria make their way below the gum line, they form tartar that makes them virtually impossible to remove without the help of a dentist, and they can damage the soft tissues of your mouth and expose your tooth root to infection. Traditional treatment for periodontal disease involves multiple lengthy scaling and root planing procedures, as well as fluoride mouthwashes and surgery to remove damaged gums.

Dual-wavelength laser therapy allows your dentist to vaporize damaged tissue without cutting or stitching your gums. This procedure offers reduced bleeding, improved healing times, and significantly less pain and discomfort. It also notably reduces the need for scaling and root planing procedures, so you can protect your teeth and restore your gum health sooner. Additionally, dental lasers are useful for a variety of other oral health issues. 

A versatile tool in general dentistry 

The dentist at Inspiration Dental may also recommend laser therapy to eliminate bacteria during root canals or other procedures, remove tooth decay, cure dental fillings, or expose impacted wisdom teeth for extractions. Dental lasers can also be used for cosmetic procedures such as tooth whitening, crown lengthening, and gum contouring.

Once your oral health is restored, our team will continue to work with you to prevent further issues. The dental team at Inspiration Dental offers individualized treatment plans so you can maintain a healthy smile and fresh breath for years to come.
