At Midtown Dental Centre, we practice Soft Tissue Laser Therapy to help our patients with periodontal or gum disease. This is also used to reduce canker sores and relieve patients from pain. The program involves a quick and painless tissue debridement through the use of laser.
Thanks to laser dentistry, scaling and root planing procedures become more accurate since laser only targets the diseased soft tissues. This means gum tissues that are in good health remain untouched. There’s high efficiency and efficacy of the treatment as laser kills bacteria within seconds. Although the procedure is painless, we still administer local anesthetic to numb the area so you feel at ease during the treatment.
We perform periodontal scaling and root planing to remove tartar buildup on the gum roots. If not treated, your gums will continue to pull away from your teeth, forming gum pockets where bacteria will thrive. This is the most effective way to get rid of gum disease. Our periodontist may schedule at least two sessions for this treatment depending on the severity of your dental case. The success of the treatment is evident in a restored gum health and the teeth reattach to the gums.
It’s never too late to seek treatment and reverse the effects of gum disease or be relieved from canker sores. If you have any questions about our soft tissue laser therapy, contact us today at (416) 966-3368.
