The Best Option For Periodontal Disease

By Saul Goodman

Laser periodontal treatment is becoming more and more popular for periodontitis, commonly called periodontal disease, which occurs when the tissue that surround and support the teeth are inflamed. Periodontitis causes the progressive loss of bone around the teeth and if left untreated can lead to the loss of the teeth. Periodontitis occurs as the result of an overly aggressive immune system response by the body to the growth of microorganisms that adhere to the teeth’s surface areas.

Properly deployed laser periodontal treatment can result in less bleeding, swelling, and discomfort for patients during surgery. According to limited research cited by none other than the American Dental Association’s Council on Scientific Affairs, erbrum lasers might be a lot more effective when employed as an adjunct to scaling and root planing therapy, which is non-surgical in nature. However, there is currently no evidence to suggest that any specific wavelength of laser is superior to traditional treatment techniques for common periodontal diseases.

Lasers have captured the public imagination as never before, and their use as medical aides excites all the more simply because oftentimes one’s first acquaintance with them is through science fiction movies and television shows where these concentrated light beams are employed as weapons. Lasers do cut, but are computer-controlled for precision that’s unparalleled for intricate work not otherwise possible.

Using them to treat periodontal diseases is just one aspect of their increased use in modern 21st Century dentistry, but consumers should still perform their due diligence in researching all claims as we are still only beginning to develop various treatment protocols using them.

Happily, insurance organizations don’t distinguish between laser treatment and traditional methods, as carriers reimburse for the process performed, regardless of the devices utilized to perform that process. Of course, it’s always advisable to first check whether a particular procedure is actually covered by your plan!
