Laser Bacterial Reduction
At Precision Dental in Glendale, we understand the importance of maintaining excellent oral health, which is why we offer laser bacterial reduction to combat gum disease. Laser Bacterial Reduction (LBR) is a pre-procedural decontamination process that helps prevent bacteria from spreading during regular teeth cleaning. It is completed at the beginning of a teeth cleaning and works by using specialized laser light to reduce bacteria in hard-to-reach places before any treatment begins.
How does laser bacterial reduction work?
Laser bacterial reduction is performed with a non-cutting laser tip used in the gum pocket to kill bacteria and prevent inflammation and the spread of gum disease to other sites in the mouth. With our state-of-the-art technology and experienced practitioners, you can trust that we will provide the highest level of precision and care to ensure that your teeth and gums are healthy and strong.
When may I need Laser Bacterial Reduction?
Laser bacterial reduction may be suggested in select cases as a preventative measure during routine cleanings. If you have been diagnosed with gingivitis or gum disease, LBR may be deemed necessary.
