People who have gingivitis or advanced gum disease suffer from extreme bone loss and gum bleeding. Therefore, it's crucial to eliminate bacteria from the teeth and gingival pockets. Lasers present the benefit of not only removing the bacteria but also destroying them completely. This helps reduce bleeding and inflammation of the gums. In some cases, it may even eliminate the need for further gum disease treatment such as gum surgery.
The wavelengths and the power levels of the laser beam can be modified or adjusted based on the varying levels of periodontal disease. This gives the dentist or the periodontist complete control over the procedure and allows them to provide a dental treatment that is uniquely suitable for that particular individual patient and also focusing on the long-term requirements and eliminating the recurrence of gum disease.
Compared to traditional flap surgery, WPT laser treatment causes lesser trauma to the gum, tooth, and surrounding areas, which means healing time is drastically reduced. Patients are known to recover much quicker and the whole process is also completed faster.
WPT is most widely used because it is minimally invasive. It also reduces the need for the use of drills or any other strongly invasive incision machine. This decreases the pressure that patients feel, which also means there's little or no need for anaesthesia. However, the need for anaesthesia varies from patient to patient. The overall effect is less pain and discomfort for patients. With insignificant discomfort, patients will feel less anxious and are more relaxed during the treatment.
Laser therapy helps in sterilizing the area well and deeply, thus eliminating and lowering the risk of bacterial infections. The WPT treatment can target the diseased areas precisely and accurately, also reducing the risk of gum disease in future.
