Laser Curettage in Mission, TX

What is Laser Bacterial Reduction?

Laser bacterial reduction, also known as LBR, is a common procedure that is done during routine cleanings. A non-cutting laser is aimed directly into the gingival pockets that form around the teeth. The laser eradicates any bacteria in this area, preventing the spread and progression of gum disease. Laser bacterial reduction is incredibly beneficial and can improve the overall health of your mouth.

Why would you need Laser Bacterial Reduction?

You may need LBR if you have gingivitis or gum disease. It may even be recommended during routine cleanings, as it prevents bacteria from infiltrating sensitive gum tissue and infecting the area around the teeth. Laser bacterial reduction uses a laser that is painless yet effective. It can be a great option for patients wanting to improve the health of their gums.
