Laser Bacterial Reduction
One of the more useful aspects of diode (soft-tissue) lasers in dentistry is their ability to reduce levels of bacteria. Our hygienist is trained in Laser Bacterial Reduction (LBR) which is a very simple, painless method to reduce the levels of bacteria under your gumline up to 95%! At your hygiene appointment, the slim flexible laser tip is gently passed around each tooth both before and after scaling. LBR is especially useful for patients who are at risk from introduction of bacteria to their bloodstream, which occurs with dental hygiene procedures. LBR can be followed with specific home care measures such as probiotic use or anti-caries therapeutics.
