Atlantic Dental is now offering the clinically proven Helbo-Laser Treatment.
Treatment of Gum disease and/or infections around implants can be challenging.
Mechanical Treatment alone and rinsing (i.e. Chorhexidine) does NOT completely destroy the pathogenic bacteria. Re-growth of bacteria occurs relatively quickly. Often strong Antibiotics are used to control such infections. These have side- effects and also resistance to antibiotics is an increasing problem. Studies show that “Hard” Laser also do not reduce the re-growth rate of bacteria in the pockets significantly. Helbo (Soft)Laser treatment however has been proven to do exactly that. With the benefit of being nearly completely painless. The treatment is also called adjunctive Photodynamic Therapy.
At Atlantic Treatment we are using the method to treat: Periodontitis, Peri-implantitis, infections after extractions.
