A laser is a high tech device that generates a tiny beam of extremely concentrated light. The beam of light brings energy into the mouth though a small fiber, to help remove areas that may be infected and remove gum disease around the teeth with precision and accuracy. The laser light can remove, vaporize, or shape gum tissue.
The laser beam sterilizes the affected area which gets rid of bacteria and seals off blood vessels, which minimizes chances of infection and bleeding. Laser treatment is in fact very safe solution to gum puffiness, inflammation, infection, or disease when in the hands of a trained professional dentist or orthodontist.
