One of the worst things that can ravage a mouth is periodontal disease or periodontitis. This disease is a serious infection in the gums that can cause not just a loss of teeth but in very severe cases the loss of some bone in the jaw. When the disease rears its ugly head, it is important to get treatment right away. The good news is that treating this disease is not as difficult as it used to be. Laser gum therapy for periodontal disease is now a routine practice at many dental offices, including One Brilliant Dental. Our staff understands the needs of patients with periodontal disease and is ready to get them the help they need to save their mouths.
Periodontal disease has many symptoms that are worse than gingivitis. Many times, periodontal disease is what happens when gingivitis is left untreated. Gums are red, swollen, and inflamed. They have receded from the teeth, leaving the roots exposed and resulting in the loss of teeth in many cases. Gum tissue is often difficult to regenerate, and in the more severe stages of periodontal disease, that means big measures must be employed to save the gums and save the mouth. That’s why laser gum therapy is such a great option, it gives patients a chance to get their gums back.
Few treatments are as effective as laser treatment. The beams are precise, and they don’t hurt the healthy areas of the mouth. Instead, what they do is allow the dentist to target the problem areas and alleviate them. The other benefit is unlike other treatments, the dentist can really drill into the affected parts of the mouth. There’s no imprecision. Unlike older methods, laser dentistry is predicated on improving the patient experience and being much more painless than previous modalities.
If your gums are in rough shape due to periodontal disease, don’t wait because there’s a lot of harm that could be happening. Instead, make inquiries about laser gum treatment. Give us a call and we can ensure that your gums and other areas of your mouth will be saved thanks to this treatment.
