What is Non-Surgical Perio Therapy Using Waterlase™?
Non-Surgical Perio Therapy using Waterlase™ is the latest advancement in the field of laser dentistry. It is a safe and effective procedure that does not cause any permanent side effects. An expert performs this treatment and removes different dental problems.
During the treatment, an expert uses small laser light to target bacteria in the gums. The patient feels minimal pain during the procedure because this device has a hydrating feature. So, it does not let the treatment area become hot due to the laser.
Due to its minimally invasive nature, more dentists are now introducing this technique in their clinics.
An individual has to fulfill the criteria set by experts to be a good candidate for Non-Surgical Perio Therapy using Waterlase™. You can be a perfect candidate for this treatment if you:

Before opting for Non-Surgical Perio Therapy using Waterlase™ treatment, discuss your overall health condition with your dentist. It will ensure the best possible results of the treatment. Generally, an expert provides pre-procedure instructions to avoid any complications during the procedure. These instructions vary from patient to patient, depending on their goals and current condition.
A specific Waterlase™ device from Biolase is used to perform Non-Surgical Perio Therapy. Though this procedure is relatively simple, we can divide it into small steps to make it easy for everyone to understand.
The three-step procedure is mentioned below:
- The practitioner sweeps the tip to the base of the periodontal pocket and presses it against soft tissue to remove epithelial lining.
- Waterlase™ then removes the diseased soft tissue granulation tissue and reduces bacteria. It removes calculus and bacteria from the root surface to encourage fibroblast attachment.
- Lastly, the practitioner seals the periodontal pocket with a fibrin clot.
In order to maintain the results, candidates are supposed to take care of the treated area. It is important to follow the instructions communicated by the dentist.
