Laser Gum Treatment
Gum disease, a bacterial infection, can cause severe damage to the gums and jawbone if left untreated. Periodontal Regenerative Therapy (PRT) is an effective procedure for treating gum disease. It uses a dental laser to remove bacterial infections and smooth the gum tissue, preventing further damage. PRT is a minimally invasive procedure with minimal discomfort and recovery time.
PRT is another term for Periodontal Regenerative Therapy, and it is recommended for people who want to avoid surgery or are unsuitable for surgery. The benefits of laser-assisted gum treatment include reduced pain, swelling, bleeding, tooth sensitivity, gum loss, faster healing, and fewer post-op infections.
Photobiomodulation Therapy (PBM) is a non-invasive light treatment that repairs damaged cells and promotes healing.
It uses red and near-infrared light to decrease inflammation, pain, and swelling and speed recovery. PBM therapy at Kusek Family & Implant Dentistry is safe, effective, and recommended after oral surgery to alleviate TMJ pain, promote oral lesion healing, and improve various conditions.
The therapy works by applying specific wavelengths of light to tissues, which are absorbed by chromophores and convert light energy into usable energy for cell repair. It is considered safe, with minimal discomfort during treatment.
