About Laser Dentistry
Modern Dentistry and Your Health
Your regular dental cleaning at a traditional dentist might not be enough to prevent a disease that affects approximately 80% of adults in America and is a growing epidemic every year. Periodontal disease, or gum disease, is a bacterial infection in the pockets around teeth that can start out feeling painless but can quickly lead to toothaches, tooth decay, and the eventual loss of your once healthy adult tooth.
At Brett Blacher DDS, our team foregoes less effective traditional cleaning styles involving mechanical irritants, to address the underlying infection that causes gum disease. We highly recommend our laser treatment for patients who want a highly effective clean that reduces their chances of developing gum disease.
Why Is Laser Dentistry So Effective?
Laser therapy focuses on three main areas of your dental health: reducing or eliminating bacteria, preventing cross contamination, and eliminating periodontal disease or signs of infection. Because of its decontamination properties and effective precision technology, patients who experience care through laser dentistry may have a higher healing rate after treatment.

Our laser decontamination process is painless and normally takes as little as 5-10 minutes to deliver a deep level of clean to support a healthier mouth and smile.
Signs of Periodontal Disease
Recent developments in dental research show that oral pathogens have now been linked to a series of other diseases, including cardiovascular disease, rheumatoid arthritis, low birth weight babies and even diabetes. Your six month appointments are vital for checking your dental health for this disease and preventing it from growing. If you think you might have periodontal disease, ask yourself if you have any of the symptoms below:
- Chronic bad breath
- Swollen, red or tender gums
- Gums that bleed easily
- Painful chewing
- Teeth that look or feel loose
- Sensitive teeth
- Receding gums around the teeth
