Laser Pocket Disinfection™
LPD kills bacteria and disrupts bioﬁlm to reduce inﬂammation. Use when isolated pocketing is present to decrease pocket depths without curettage. Ideal for patients with gingivitis as
an introduction to the beneﬁts of laser dentistry.
- Quick and painless procedure to help maintain healthy gums and avoid progression of the disease
- Removes the inﬂammation so your body can heal naturally without antibiotics
- Safe for medically compromised patients, patients on blood thinners, and diabetic patients
Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) or biostimulation can be used for many applications within dentistry, in particular to reduce the pain associated with orthodontics or temporomandibular disorder (TMJ). Use of laser energy as therapy can both stimulate and suppress biological processes.
Biostimulation provides a unique healing in a serene and comfortable manner.
* Procedure not cleared by the FDA.
- Relieves pain associated with TMJ
- Stimulates the body’s own healing process by increasing blood ﬂow to the aﬀected area
- Helps relax muscles and block inﬂammation
Aphthous ulcers are painful, yet generally disappear without treatment in 10-14 days. Ulcers aren’t infectious, and tend to recur less with age. The cause is not known, but related factors include injury, changes in hormone levels, lack of iron,
food allergies, stress and certain medications.
- Eliminates pain associated with the aphthous ulcer
- Increases patient convenience by avoiding having to reschedule appointment because of pain from site
- For particularly large ulcers, treatment can speed the healing process
Herpetic Lesion (Viral Therapy)
Herpetic lesions can occur in three diﬀerent forms: recurrent small blisters on the lips, a generalized oral infection, or small ulcers on the palatal mucosa. The most common form is small blisters on the lips, which can be treated with low level laser therapy. Outbreaks may be triggered by sunlight, physical trauma, stress, and other irritants. Lesions will usually resolve in 10-14 days, but may be painful.
- Safe, quick and comfortable treatment that relieves pain
- Immediate relief
- Lesions can be treated before a breakout if patients feel an ‘onset’
- Laser treatment can help reduce the number of cold sores and severity of future outbreaks
- For particular large ulcers, treatment can speed the healing process
- No anesthesia needed
Dental sensitivity aﬀects more than 40% of adults worldwide, and more than 40 million people in the United States.  Exposed dental tubules are believed to be the predominate cause, with sensitivity to heat and cold the most common complaint. Laser therapy can help close tubules and reduce sensitivity.
- Relieves discomfort of sensitive teeth
- Can be performed before or after restorative treatments to increase patient comfort
