Try Low Level Laser Therapy for Oral Health

Sep 30, 2019 08:04PM
Dr. Nathan Conlee, Executive Director and treating physician at Winterhaven Health Center, in Tucson, advises those seeking optimum oral health to eat healthy, brush, floss and consider low level laser therapy (LLLT).

“As a healthcare provider, I take a very holistic approach to help my patients. We all know we should be brushing our teeth for three minutes, two or three times per day, and flossing along with it. But other considerations for oral health include nutrition and LLLT,” explains Conlee. “Nutritionally, seek out an anti-inflammatory diet, staying away from sugar and keeping our gums healthy. Smoking and carbonated beverages (even sparkling water) are very harmful to our gums and enamel.”

With reference to LLLT, research has shown this red light therapy heals the gums and drives away bacteria and viruses. LLLT is performed at home with a DPL Oral Care rechargeable unit for three to five minutes, once or twice daily. This device is $99.95, available at Winterhaven Health Center.
