Dental lasers constitute “cutting-edge” technology which we can use to help detect dental disease in its earliest stages, find tumors and perform both surgical and non-surgical procedures on the soft tissues of the mouth. At Oakville Dental, Dr. Arvind Kataria can also use laser dentistry to enhance the efficacy of traditional procedures. For example, laser periodontal therapy can be use in addition to root planing and scaling in the treatment of gum disease.
Benefits of Laser Dentistry:
- Virtually Painless, More Natural Dentistry
- Accuracy & Precision
- Reduced Trauma
- Less Bleeding & Swelling
- Fewer Dental Visits
- No need for shots or anesthesia, in most cases
Laser Periodontal Therapy
In the event of gum disease or periodontitis, from mild to severe, we use the Laser Periodontal Therapy as an adjunctive and/or alternative mode of therapy. This procedure aids in reducing the bacteria associated with periodontitis, which may cause deepening of periodontal pockets.
