Benefits of using Laser Technology for Treatment

The dental hygienists at van Hofwegen Dental treat periodontal disease (gum disease) with laser technology which is the very best that modern dentistry has to offer. The dental laser has been shown to eliminate periodontal infection and stimulate repair of the damaged gum and bone.

Treating periodontal disease in this way with a specific wavelength of laser energy has been show to lower your risk of developing heart disease, stroke, low birth weight babies and possibly Alzheimer’s. Research is being done to further substantiate the link between periodontal disease and whole body health.

Even more, from the patient perspective, is that laser periodontal therapy has none of the drawbacks of older surgical therapies. It is comfortable, does not cause gum recession and it does not involve drugs or harsh chemicals.

The hygienists at van Hofwegen Dental have extensive training in the most effective use of this specific type of laser treatment. Now, with over 5 years of follow-up cases the results have been very impressive. Laser-assisted periodontal treatment…one more way that shows van Hofwegen Dental truly provides “high tech” dentistry.
