Bacterial Laser Decontamination

Dentist in New Braunfels

Bacterial laser decontamination involves tracing the laser around the gum line of each tooth, killing the bad (anaerobic) bacteria found in the gingival sulcus. By reducing the bacterial load found in the gingival sulcus, laser decontamination can aid in the biostimulation of new blood vessels, collagen formation and help promote reattachment of gingiva to the surrounding tooth. It has been shown that laser decontamination is more effective than localized antibiotic therapy. In addition, there are no strains of bacteria resistant to lasers.

Latest research shows that these oral pathogens have now been linked to a number of other diseases such as cardiovascular disease, rheumatoid arthritis, low birth weight babies, diabetes etc. Anything that we can do to reduce or eliminate these bacteria is a positive. The laser decontamination process is painless and normally takes about 5-10 minutes. We highly recommend that you take advantage of this service as part of your routine cleaning.
