Why Some Periodontists Use Lasers

This is a good video and describes why certain lasers work for gum disease and others do not.

It also describes how periodontists like me have to work through the pros and cons of certain procedures before (1) deciding on additional training and (2) changing office procedures.

Some periodontists have not moved to using lasers in their practice. I completely understand. This was me a few years back. Fortunately some periodontist friends I respect advised me to check this out. And that’s what I recommend my skeptical colleagues to do as well. The best training in the field hands down is by Millennium Dental Technologies. And yes, no all lasers are alike. Some work in soft tissue and for periodontal disease and others do not.
