The most common reason people lose teeth today is periodontal disease (or gum disease). The condition has traditionally been treated with either scaling and root planning or surgery, including a scalpel, incisions, gum flap and sutures.
Fortunately, the modern way is far less frightening and painful. With the introduction of the PerioLase MVP-7 machine, patients no longer need to endure conventional surgery.
Laser light, delivered with a minuscule fiber optic point, selectively destroys diseased cells while leaving healthy tissue unharmed. The light travels deep into the gums, killing any bacteria causing the infection.
About the PerioLase MVP-7
The PerioLase MVP-7 is a 6-watt, pulsed Nd:YAG dental laser featuring seven pulse durations. We can also change the PerioLase MVP-7 to work for 20 different treatments. This lets us meet each person’s needs more precisely.
We use it in minimally invasive procedures to eliminate infected and diseased cells in the subcutaneous tissue to stop advanced-stage periodontitis. Its calibrated laser pulses treat periodontitis, promote healing and improve gingival health.
The PerioLase MVP-7 is the only device with a continuous energy display and built-in power meter. This matters because certain energy levels affect laser-tissue interaction differently. By displaying the total energy provided, dentists can apply precisely the proper levels for each patient’s needs.
Benefits of Treating Gum Infection with the PerioLase MVP-7
The PerioLase MVP-7 is our first choice since it is non-invasive and helps the human body heal itself. Therefore, this laser platform does more than kill pathogenic microbes and remove unhealthy gingival tissues. It also supports healthy bone and gum tissue growing back naturally. As your body is pushed to heal itself from gum disease, the stability of your gums is maximized.
Perhaps best of all, there is no need for scalpels with this technology, so you can get back to your everyday routine quickly. You will also experience significantly less bleeding, swelling, pain and sensitivity, and the risk of post-treatment infections is minimized.
As a bonus, this treatment lowers the risk of stroke and heart disease, since periodontal disease makes people more likely to get these severe health problems.
