Periodontal or gum disease is an infection of the supporting tissues and bone that hold your teeth in place. The condition often begins affecting adults in their 30s and 40s and can be caused by poor oral hygiene, smoking, chronic illnesses like diabetes, certain medications, and genetics. A typical treatment is scaling, a.k.a. root planing. This removes tartar, plaque, and bacteria from the gum surrounding the root, promoting the healthy regeneration of the gum tissue. With laser therapy, we remove the inflamed tissue without pain or discomfort. We then scrape off the calculus and plaque and smooth the root so healing can begin.
When periodontal disease is more advanced, laser therapy allows us to remove diseased areas without periodontal surgery. Benefits can include:
- General anesthetic is not needed.
- Precise, accurate targeting of inflamed areas.
- Significantly less bleeding, pain, and swelling than with periodontal surgery.
- Shorter recovery and healing times.
Once we repair the damage, we’ll show you how to care for your teeth so that you have healthy gums and a bright smile for years to come. We also know that dentistry can be an unexpected expense, which is we offer third-party, interest-free financing.
