Laser Bacterial Reduction

Laser Treatment for Periodontitis is Available in the Beverly Hills, CA Region

At Advanced Dental Care of Beverly Hills, Dr. Hakim and our staff are absolutely obsessed with gum health. Why? Because gum disease can threaten your systemic health, especially if you have certain medical issues like diabetes.

Periodontitis is an inflammation of the gums caused by bacteria. In addition to routine oral care, periodontitis is typically treated with a “deep-cleaning” scaling and root planing along with antibiotics. But at Advanced Dental Care of Beverly Hills, Dr. Hakim also has another tool to use against stubborn periodontitis – laser treatments.

The treatment consists of laser application at specific wavelengths to eradicate bacteria. Since the laser is simply light, it can get into very tight spaces to thoroughly clean out gum pockets. The procedure is largely painless and is often used in conjunction with other periodontal therapies.

Make sure you safeguard your complete health by caring for your gums as well as your teeth. Please call us at (310) 657-2000 for appointments.
