Laser Gum Therapy

Utilizing the latest in non-invasive dental periodontal therapy

Photobiomodulation, also known as low level laser therapy (LLLT), is an emerging medical technique in which exposure to low-level laser light or light emitting diodes stimulate cellular function leading to beneficial clinical effects.

Dr. Tiffany was part of the small dental research team that began studying this emerging technique and it’s application in the dental profession at UCLA.

Dr. Tiffany has treated numerous patients with moderate to severe periodontal disease and has minimized its progression through various laser techniques.

Three lasers that Dr. Tiffany utilizes on a daily basis, specific to each patient’s personal dental needs include:

Nd Yag Lasers are used for soft tissue surgeries in the oral cavity, such as gingivectomy, periodontal sulcular debridement, LANAP, frenectomy, biopsy, and coagulation of graft donor sites. These lasers are often used for debridement and disinfection of periodontal pockets. Their ability to form fibrin allows them to seal treated pockets. They are also helpful in greatly reducing the length of cold sore breakouts if caught early.

Helium Neon Laser & Infrared Helium Neon allow for a number of clinical conditions affecting the teeth and jaws may be amenable to low-level laser therapy. Photo-dynamic therapy, where a drug or chemical is introduced and activated by laser light, can be used in dentistry to treat bacterial infection in endodontics and periodontology. Additional uses of low-level laser light include caries detection and scanning techniques in orthodontics and restorative dentistry.

Laser gum therapy allows for a much more efficient healing time with minimal if any discomfort as opposed to conventional periodontal therapy and treatment.
