How LED Lights Can Improve Your Gum Health
Looking after your oral health is vital for your overall health and wellbeing, and even for a positive attitude and self-esteem.
While we all know the importance of brushing and flossing our teeth every day, technology is helping to take oral healthcare to the next level. One such development that is growing in popularity is the use of LED treatments, specifically red light and blue light therapy.
What is LED oral care?
Although at-home products are relatively new to the market, dentists have been using light therapy for many years as part of their protocol. This therapy can be very effective in helping reduce inflammation, ease pain, and promote healing. The two main types of light therapy utilized in these LED products are red and blue light.
Red light helps to improve the flow of blood in your gums while also increasing cell turnover, which helps to increase the speed of repair for damaged gums and tissue. Just a few minutes a day can transform your recovery time, and red light LEDs have also been shown to reduce pain as well as improve your overall oral health.
The use of blue light helps to keep your teeth clean and free from harmful bacteria. Blue light LEDs have been shown to eradicate anaerobic bacteria, which can cause everything from plaque and bad breath to periodontal disease and gingivitis. Blue light is also a great way to remove stains from drinks such as wine and coffee from your teeth, leaving you with a bright and beautiful smile.
