What is laser pocket disinfection, and what are its benefits?

Our mouths can house over 700 varieties of bacteria on any given day. While many of these bacteria protect the smile from tooth decay, there are also harmful bacteria that can contribute to the development of periodontal disease and cavities. Without proper oral care, these bacteria can cause problems that become irreversible without the help of a Del Mar, California area dentist. At I-Rise Dental Boutique, our team is pleased to provide periodontal cleaning using laser pocket disinfection solutions.

What is laser pocket disinfection?

With laser pocket disinfection (LPD), patients can treat the harmful bacteria in the smile that contribute to oral health conditions. It uses a special laser device designed to target bacteria that may be present in the pockets that often develop between the gum tissues and the natural teeth. Standard dental cleanings cannot reach this area, so extra measures are taken to achieve results.

What can I expect during my laser pocket disinfection treatment?

Periodontal pocket treatment using our laser device is fast, minimally invasive, and effective at helping patients restore their oral health. The treatment takes only about 15 minutes and is considered a painless treatment for most. Because the laser treatment is gentler on the gum tissues and teeth, it does not require patients to have anesthetics. No downtime or recovery is also needed after the procedure, allowing patients to return to their day with minimal interruption.

What are the benefits of laser pocket disinfection?

  • No shots of anesthesia needed
  • Effective treatment of harmful bacteria and biofilm
  • Prevention of bacteria spread
  • Safe for patients who are medically compromised
  • Helps maintain healthy teeth and gums
  • Eliminates the need for antibiotics and reduces the risk of antibiotic resistance
