We’ll take a look and work with you to find the best option for your smile!
Periodontal disease, also called gum disease, is a fairly common condition and many adults tend to have some form of it. In its early stages, it’s called gingivitis. This is a mild form of gum disease that can be reversed with oral hygiene habits. Over time, gingivitis can progress into periodontitis. This is a chronic condition that can cause damage to the gums, connective tissues, and bone. It can even cause tooth loss. The disease can be caused by many things, including genetics or even some medications.
The good news is, we can effectively treat moderate cases of periodontal disease and help save your teeth! Gum disease laser therapy gently disinfects your gums and removes diseased tissue. This gives your gums and surrounding tissues a chance to heal. It also stimulates the cells to create new tissue and bone. The great thing about this treatment is that it’s more comfortable than surgery and you’ll recover quicker. Since laser periodontal surgery doesn’t cause trauma to your gums the way invasive surgery does, the whole treatment process goes by much faster.
Another great thing about gum laser therapy is that we can tailor your treatment based on your needs. There’s no one-size-fits-all approach with it! We’ll assess your level of periodontal disease and come up with the perfect treatment plan for you. In general, most patients have two to eight treatment sessions. We’ll also help you to prevent further infections. You’ll be fully supported along the way, even after treatment has been completed. If cost is a concern, we offer support for that too – with convenient third-party interest-free financing.
No matter what your dental challenges are, Team Buzza will make sure you’re comfortable and cared for at every visit. We’ll explain everything in a way that’s easy to understand, so you can make the best decisions for you! And if you have trouble relaxing in the dentist chair, we offer safe, effective sedation therapy. Whether you need general dentistry, restorative treatment, or want to address cosmetic concerns, you’ll find service you need for a happy, healthy smile! We see patients from all over Sonoma County, including Sebastopol. Give us a call at 707-573-0600 or schedule an appointment online.
