Laser Gum Treatment for Gum Disease
Your gums are a crucial aspect of your overall oral health. Gum or periodontal disease is prevalent amongst adults and is the leading cause of tooth loss. It can also increase your risk for other serious health conditions like stroke, cardiovascular issues, type 2 diabetes and more. At Pearl Dentistry, we offer advanced therapy for periodontal disease like laser gum treatment to help our patients improve their oral and overall health.
Progression of Gum Disease
Gingivitis is the first stage of gum disease, when the tissues of the gum begin to show signs of infection. If left untreated, gingivitis will progress into more serious phases of gum disease. Catching gum disease in the early stages allows for the best chance of recovery. Our hygienist checks for signs of gum disease and measure the gaps between your gums and teeth. If you are diagnosed with periodontal disease, we can create a treatment plan that can stop the infection and help your gums heal to prevent further oral health issues.
Effective Laser Gum Therapy
In the early stages, gum disease can be treated with deep cleanings and medications to fight the infection. When the disease has progressed, the affected gum tissue may need to be removed to restore health. While oral surgery can be used, it is more invasive and may require stiches, requiring longer to heal. Laser gum treatment is minimally invasive and can offer excellent results for periodontal disease.
Using LANAP (Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure), our dentist can use laser light to treat infected gums. This method removes damaged gum tissues and kills bacteria in the deep recesses around the tooth root. Laser gum treatment is painless and effective, a quicker way to heal gums affected by disease than surgery.
