Laser Assisted Peridontal Therapy also known as LAPT is a laser decontamination therapy that decontaminates gums through the use of a high powered minimally invasive pain free laser treatment. This therapy eliminates the need for bacteria to form further down the line. It is effective for those who are prone to gum disease and periodontitis.
HOW DOES LAPT WORK?
With LAPT, the laser light is designed to target and eliminate the most common bacteria that lives around and inside the gum tissue. When you build up excess tartar and calculus, usually from inflammation and bleeding of the gums the laser can exacerbate the healing process. It is a non invasive, non surgical pain free and safe approach to gum health and can overall help treat gum disease. In Conjunction with a deep scaling and root planing, it only benefits the gums to get them back in its health state. Gingival Irrigation is also performed to help eliminate bacteria from forming in conjunction with the laser treatment. Once complete your gums will be restored then regular 3 month cleanings are recommended to monitor the gum tissue.
