Post Laser Cleaning Home Care Instructions
Your health and welfare are my greatest concern, and more specifically, your success in controlling periodontal disease, which is treatable, but not curable. While you will have this disease for the rest of your life, it can be controlled, so my treatment objective is to prevent further bone loss and subsequent tooth loss. Failure to remove bacteria, calculus, tartar and toxins from underneath gums, will lead to bone loss resulting in loose, unhealthy teeth, inflamed, infected, necrotic gums and foul smelling breath. I am committed to help you regain control before it seriously affects your quality of life.
For your optimal periodontal health, I have outlined a home care plan to support your scaling and root planning (deep cleaning) treatment today. Following these instructions carefully will help to restore your gum pocket measurements to within healthy limits, and maintain your periodontal health in the future.
As a result of this minor invasive procedure today, you may experience some discomfort. I recommend Tylenol, Aleve, Advil or Motrin immediately and again tonight or tomorrow as needed to relieve any discomfort. Take any other medications given to you as prescribed.
Your next periodontal maintenance appointment will be scheduled for 6-8 weeks from today’s visit. At that time we will re-evaluate your periodontal condition, and you will receive your follow-up periodontal maintenance cleaning. Please commit to periodontal maintenance 4 times per year, as periodontal bacteria begin to “recharge” every 2-3 months. Your commitment to ongoing quarterly periodontal maintenance and good dental home care are the keys to maintaining your dental health.

Home Care Instructions After Laser Treatment
1. Dental laser procedures result in little or no discomfort following surgery. Take prescribed pain medications according to instructions if needed.
2. Carefully avoid chewing food in the areas of the mouth where the laser has been used. One of the most important results of laser surgery is the healing that occurs following the initial procedure. It is extremely important not to dislodge the tiny clots that form in the gums.
3. Daily Care:
• Do not brush the treated side for 1 week.
• Don’t floss, use over the counter mouth-rinses, pick or dig at your gums at all for 1 month.
• During the first week, eat only soft foods and do not chew where the surgery was performed this first week.
• Use the prescription mouth rinse 2 times a day for 2 weeks.
4. The length of time it takes for the gums to heal depends upon the severity of the disease. Most healing in the surface area takes 2 - 4 weeks. Deeper pocket areas may take several months to completely heal.
