Laser Bacterial Removal

Did you know that bacteria can hide in the tissue under your gums where traditional cleaning can’t reach them?

Fortunately, advancements in technology have made possible a procedure called LBR to combat these untouched infection bringers.

What is LBR?

LBR stands for Laser Bacterial Reduction, which uses laser light for the most effective method of reducing the bacteria that lives in the pockets around your teeth. Without proper reduction, these bacteria can lead to infections that cause Gingivitis and Periodontal Disease.

LBR is completely painless, and only takes approximately 5-10 minutes. It is typically done prior to traditional cleaning, on someone of any age or health level.

Why is LBR better than just traditional cleaning?

Bacteria persist by migrating beneath the gums and into the underlying tissue. Where traditional cleaning is limited to the removal of surface deposits in the pockets of your mouth, a laser can extend beneath the tissue to disrupt and remove bacterium. The painless heat of the laser thermally dehydrates the biofilms. Since dehydration is lethal to bacteria, the potential for infection and gum detachment is significantly decreased.

Additional benefits of LBR

Lurking bacterium has the added danger of cross contamination, which spreads infection to other areas our mouths. Bacteria can even make their way into our bloodstream, plaguing other areas of our bodies with oral pathogens. Laser bacterial reduction is the best way to protect against infection and sickness caused by the spread of bacteria.
