Keep Periodontal Disease at Bay with Laser Bacterial Reduction

We invite you to explore a revolutionary dental procedure that changes smiles and enhances oral health at Levy Goldman Dentistry in Peabody, MA. Dr. Naomi Goldman and Dr. Danny Levy are at the forefront of this transformative technology – Laser Bacterial Reduction (LBR).

Research has shown that there is a strong connection between oral health and systemic health. Poor oral hygiene can lead to an increased risk of serious health issues such as heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. With the LBR procedure, we are able to target and eliminate harmful bacteria in the mouth that can contribute to these health problems.

What is Laser Bacterial Reduction?

Laser Bacterial Reduction (LBR) is a cutting-edge and non-invasive dental procedure that utilizes the power of laser light to eliminate harmful bacteria in the mouth. Using a small laser fiber, the procedure specifically targets and eradicates the bacteria that can potentially lead to gum disease and other oral health conditions. This innovative technique provides a thorough and comprehensive approach to oral care and ensures the reduction and elimination of harmful bacteria.

Who Needs LBR?

Dr. Levy and Dr. Goldman highly recommend considering Laser Bacterial Reduction (LBR) for our patients seeking to enhance their oral health and proactively prevent potential dental issues. This revolutionary procedure is particularly advantageous for our Peabody patients with an elevated risk of gum disease or who are already managing this condition.

Laser Bacterial Reduction serves as an exceptional preventive measure, ideal for patients who want to preserve a healthy smile for years to come. LBR is also an excellent option for patients with chronic health conditions such as diabetes or heart disease because it can help decrease the risk of inflammation and further complications with both oral and systemic conditions.

Gum Disease and Its Complications

Gum disease (also known as periodontal disease) is a chronic inflammatory condition affecting the tissues surrounding and supporting the teeth. In its early stage, known as gingivitis, the gums can become swollen and red, often bleeding during brushing or flossing.

Left untreated, gum disease can progress to periodontitis, where the gums pull away from the teeth, forming pockets that can become infected. If these conditions are not addressed, gum disease can lead to serious complications, including tooth loss and bone degradation, and has been linked to systemic health issues such as cardiovascular disease and diabetes.

Laser Bacterial Reduction (LBR) offers a proactive measure in managing and preventing these bacteria-related complications of gum disease. The laser light can painlessly penetrate deep into the pockets of the gums, eliminating harmful bacteria and promoting healing. With LBR, we are able to combat gum disease effectively and reduce the risk of associated health complications.

The Advantages of LBR

The benefits of LBR extend beyond just a beautiful smile. Here are some key advantages:

Preventive Care

LBR helps prevent and manage gum disease, a condition that can lead to tooth loss and systemic conditions if untreated. By eliminating harmful bacteria, LBR protects your oral and overall health.

Minimally Invasive

Unlike traditional gum disease treatments that can involve surgery and an extended recovery time, LBR is minimally invasive, meaning it does not require any surgery or sutures. This makes it a convenient and stress-free option for patients.


The laser used in LBR is gentle and does not cause any discomfort for the patient. This makes it a popular choice for those who may have dental anxiety or fear of needles.

Quick Procedure

LBR can be completed in just one office visit, making it a time-efficient option for patients with busy schedules.

Improved Overall Health

By reducing harmful bacteria in the mouth, LBR can also contribute to improved systemic health and decreased risk of associated conditions like heart disease or diabetes.

The LBR Procedure

During an LBR session, Dr. Levy or Dr. Goldman will use a small laser fiber to gently sweep the gums and teeth. This process effectively targets and eradicates harmful bacteria, all while ensuring your complete comfort. Not only is the procedure quick and efficient, but it also boasts the added benefit of requiring no recovery time. It’s an exceptionally convenient option for patients with demanding schedules or active lifestyles.
