LPD: Disinfect, Prevent, & Protect

Laser Pocket Disinfection (LPD) is a pain-free procedure using the PerioLase® MVP-7™ laser to kill bacteria and reduce inflammation.LPD-steps-image

The LPD procedure is founded on improving your oral and whole body health using the PerioLase® MVP-7™ dental laser. This is the only dental Laser specifically designed for better periodontal health.  The wavelength of the MVP-7™ targets the bacteria that causes gum disease for minimally invasive, highly effective treatment, without damaging any healthy tissue.  By removing the bacteria, you are removing the inflammation it causes, giving your body the energy to heal holistically and naturally.  The laser light creates a clean environment for healing. Speak to your dentist about holistic approaches to managing gum disease.

You may be a candidate for Laser Pocket Disinfection.  LPD may used as a preventative measure to reduce chances of Periodontal Disease developing.  If you have gingivitis, LPD can help reverse the symptoms it causes.  LPD can also be used to treat patients on a perio-maintenance program – ask your dentist if this is something you should consider.  LPD is pain-free and studies have shown absolutely no negative side effects results from the procedure in over 25 years of therapy.  The treatment is safe for use around crowns, bridges, sealants and implants, or any other pre-existing dental work. LPD is beneficial to patients who have recently had surgery, or are scheduled to have surgery, as it reduces the bacteria that may enter the bloodstream.

Gum disease, left untreated, can lead to serious health risks and issues.  When Periodontal Disease progresses to Periodontitis, it starts to attack the bone in your jaw, leading to tooth loss, bone loss, and premature aging.  The inflammation it causes has also been linked to heart disease, stroke, diabetes, pre-term birth, certain cancers, and more.  These negative effects are brought on by a disease that we can actually pass on to others, by simply kissing or sharing cups and utensils.  The benefits of LPD are life-changing for your health, and the health of those you love.  It is our responsibility to disinfect, prevent, and protect.  Why wait?
