Dr. Anca Jivan uses laser dentistry to access and remove the inflamed gum tissue from around the root of the tooth. Firstly, when the infected tissue is removed and the root is exposed, the root scaling begins. This involves scraping off the calculus and plaque built up below the gumline and around the root. Secondly, Dr. Jivan smoothes the root with instruments to remove any rough spots that might attract bacteria and cause future infections. Finally, the area between the gum and the root can regenerate during the healing process.
The traditional treatment with laser dentistry for periodontal disease is scaling and root planning (SRP). This is a non-surgical method of cleaning the surfaces of the teeth and their root which may be exposed due to gum recession. In fact, it removes tartar, plaque and bacteria from the gum surrounding the root. In addition, it promotes the healthy regeneration of the gum tissue.
