Laser Assisted Periodontal Therapy (LAPT)

LAPT is used during deep dental cleanings, such as root planing and curettage procedures, to remove the diseased, infected, inflamed, and dead soft tissue
within the deep gum pocket. This is a non-surgical procedure, which does not involve the use of a scalpel, and does not require stitches. The removal of the
dead tissue with the dental laser also sterilizes the gum pocket and kills the harmful bacteria throughout the procedure. The dental laser stimulates rapid healing
of the soft tissue, while routinely reducing the size of the gum pockets and promoting the bone regeneration around our patient’s teeth, which results in a
healthier mouth. The laser treatment, in addition to traditional scaling and root planning procedures, can often take the place of surgical periodontal gum
procedures.
