  • To relieve pain; you can take pain killers this will relieve the pain and are sold without a prescription. 
  • It is advisable to eat only soft foods for the first 24 hours and avoid hard foods that may cause irritation.
  • Drink abundant water during 24 hours is recommended to drink at least 8 glasses of water.
  • Put cold towels or an ice pack on your face in the area where the treatment was given. Apply for 15 minutes and then remove them for another 15 minutes within 4-6 hours after treatment.
  • In the morning following the treatment; rinse your mouth with warm salt water (dissolve 1/2 teaspoon of salt in a glass of warm water). Repeat this several times a day.
  • Brush teeth gently to help remove the plate that has begun to form. We suggest that you use toothpaste with fluoride and controlling the scale.
  • Do not use dental floss or other household products for care of the teeth, such as toothpicks or electric brushes for the first 24 hours of your treatment. Start very gently at first.
  • It is very common that periodontal diseases to occur, patients should have regular check-ups to monitor progress and to prevent recurring disease.

Deep Cleaning

Recommendation: Brush your teeth and use dental floss daily after every meal to reduce or prevent tartar grown. 

Chewing and eating: You can eat immediately after the cleaning was done.

Diet Instructions: Do not eat spicy or excessively hot foods. The first week after the laser therapy, follow only a liquid-like diet to allow healing. The purpose of this is to protect the clot that is acting as a “band aid” between the gum and the teeth.

LANAP (Laser assisted new attachment procedure)

LANAP - Dental procedure designed to treat periodontitis, the procedure involves using regeneration rather than resection. The dental therapy and the laser used to perform was developed since 1994 and refined in Cerritos, California.

The LANAP laser works on a specific wavelength - this will remove unhealthy/disease tissue, but leaves the healthy gum tissue intact. In other words, there is much less post-operative stress to your oral cavity.
