Laser Bacterial Reduction
At Luxury Dentistry NYC we offer laser bacterial reduction, or LBR, a modern, fast, and painless preventive procedure prior to every dental cleaning appointment. LBR uses laser technology to effectively target the bacteria that live in the pockets around your teeth.
Bacteria persist by migrating beneath the gums and into the underlying tissue. Where traditional NYC teeth cleaning is limited to the removal of surface deposits in the pockets of your mouth, a laser can extend beneath the tissue to disrupt and destroy the bacteria.
The painless heat of the laser thermally dehydrates the biofilms. Since dehydration is lethal to bacteria, the potential for infection and gum detachment is significantly decreased. Furthermore, there is a decrease in these smelly pathogens for up to 3 months, which greatly reduces odors caused by these bacteria.
Benefits of LBR
Lurking bacteria have the added danger of cross-contamination, which spreads infections to other areas besides our mouths. Bacteria can even make their way into our bloodstream, plaguing our bodies with oral pathogens. Laser bacterial reduction is the best way to protect against infection and sickness caused by the spread of oral bacteria.
Furthermore, LBR is a great choice because it is:
- Quick - usually takes about 5 minutes
- Able to kill bacteria that are out of the reach of superficial cleanings
Because it is painless and quick, it is easy to begin an LBR regimen right away. If you have questions about this laser bacterial reduction in NY, please ask your hygienist or Dr. Davidowitz and they will be happy to clear up any doubts.
