How laser therapy works to treat gum disease
Gum disease is basically an infection of your gum tissues caused by bacteria and plaque buildup on your teeth. In its advanced state, gum disease, aka periodontal disease, can destroy the bone structure that supports your teeth and cause tooth loss. Traditional gum disease treatment involves scaling, root planing, and/or gum surgery. Laser technology provides a more effective means of treating this dental issue.
We use periodontal lasers to remove bacteria and infected gum tissue down to the root of your teeth through laser therapy. This enables us to thoroughly clean the affected area, so it has a chance to heal. Laser energy is then used to seal these areas to protect them from further infection. Laser treatment also stimulates tissue growth and regeneration for quicker healing. Depending on the severity of your gum infection, laser therapy may be used in place of or in conjunction with traditional gum disease treatments.
How you can benefit from laser therapy
Laser technology offers numerous advantages over traditional treatments for gum disease. After a thorough dental evaluation at our office, we can determine if it’s a good fit for you. With laser therapy, you can benefit from:
- Precise and accurate gum disease treatment tailored to your needs
- Reduced gum inflammation and bleeding
- Quicker healing
- Less pain and anxiety, if you’re sensitive to dental drilling
- Reduced risk of bacterial infection
