How Laser Works

Laser technology has improved outcomes for millions of patients requiring medical treatment. It is used in dermatology, ophthalmology, internal surgery, dentistry, and more.

The Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation (LASER) used in dentistry to treat gum disease is comprised of a single wavelength which, unlike sunlight, produces a rainbow of colorful wavelengths when moving through a prism. Lasers for medical use rely on four interdependent elements: electricity, a mirror that identifies and guides the laser to the affected area, a semiconductor that generates wavelengths of light when stimulated, and fiber optics to transport laser to the affected area.

These components are used in conjunction to diagnose and treat medical conditions, including gum disease.

Treating Gum Disease with Laser

In the early 1990s, laser technology was cleared by the Food and Drug Administration for use in dentistry to treat soft tissue. Today, more and more dental providers are using laser to treat gum disease because of the remarkable results it provides. Laser is also an effective tool for addressing problems on the lips, gums, and tongue. Even hard tissue treatment on the bone, dentin, and tooth enamel is proving very successful when treated with laser.

To treat patients with moderate to severe gum disease, Dr. Bordlemay performs the FDA cleared LANAP®. This procedure is a state of the art dental technology backed by strong medical research and is considered one of the leading methods available to efficiently and safely remove bacteria and diseased tissue with less inflammation, less bleeding, and minimal discomfort. It also helps patients hold on to their natural teeth because laser stimulates the underlying bone that supports them.
