Dental Lasers in Dentistry

Laser Pocket Disinfection (LPD)

LPD kills bacteria and disrupts biofilm to reduce inflammation. The unique wavelength targets the bacteria that causes gum disease for minimally invasive, highly effective, quick and painless treatment. When isolated pocketing is present, LPD decreases pocket depths without curettage. Ideal for patients with gingivitis.


  • Quick and painless procedure to help maintain healthy gums and avoid progression of the disease
  • Removes the inflammation so your body can heal naturally without antibiotics
  • Safe for medically comprised patients, patients on blood thinners, and diabetic patients
