At Southcenter Dental, we strive to offer our patients with the latest and greatest in dental care. One of our most innovative pieces of equipment is our periodontal therapy laser. Our hygienist, Kimberly, recently attended a course from the World Clinical Laser Institute. Take a look at what she had to say about the benefits of this technology!
The news has recently been discussing the relationship between periodontal gum disease and some systemic health conditions, and the fight against periodontal disease has become more important. Now at Southcenter Dental we have a high tech device to help our patients stay healthy; the Diode Soft Tissue Laser.
Using the Diode Soft Tissue Laser in periodontal therapy offers two distinct benefits to our patients:
1. The extreme precision of the laser allows removal of only the diseased tissue
2. The laser provides simultaneous clotting of the blood vessels providing an optimal environment for speedy healing.
The most important point to the laser cleaning procedure is that it is completely painless!
