LASER ASSISTED PERIODONTAL THERAPY (LAPT)
In LAPT therapy there is not cutting away of the gums or bone as in traditional treatment. The Waterlase iPlus™ laser uses a unique combination of laser energy and water to provide gentler, more precise treatment that conserves healthy tissue and minimizes pain and discomfort.
The following are many of these benefits.
1. More Comfortable (With Little or No Pain): In addition to the laser’s increased accuracy and shortened treatment time, patients overall experience is improved over traditional treatment.
2. Minimally Invasive: There is no cutting of the gum or bone as in traditional surgery. Precise laser energy reduces harmful bacteria and diseased tissue without harming any of your healthy tissues.
3. Less Damaging: The Waterlase iPlus™ allows the doctor to remove periodontal diseased gum tissue, enhance a smile and enhance a number of other related periodontal procedures in the most precise, conservative manner possible. This promotes healing and allows you to keep more of your normal gum tissue!
4. Safe: WaterLase iPlus™ lasers are completely safe when combined with daily safety protocols and have been approved by the US FDA as safe for periodontal treatment, periodontal cosmetics, crown lengthening and implant preparation as well as a variety of other dental procedures.
