Laser Gum Therapy
Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults in the United States. Fortunately, it’s almost entirely preventable with a good oral hygiene routine and regular professional dental care. When gum disease does strike, it’s important to begin treatment as soon as possible to avoid permanent damage which can occur when the disease develops into its later stages. Laser Gum Therapy is one of the best treatment options when it comes to gum disease.
Thanks to advanced technology and local anesthetic, Laser Gum Therapy is nearly pain-free! It usually takes only 2 sessions to treat the gum disease depending on severity which is much shorter than the traditional gum therapy treatment process.
Traditional Gum Disease Therapy involves the use of a scalpel to cut into the infected gums to scrape away any bacteria and infected tissue. This almost always causes healthy tissue to also be destroyed and leads to lots of bleeding and inflammation. Laser Gum Therapy is minimally invasive, gentle enough that no stitches are needed and keeps heathy tissue safe.
As discussed above, Laser Gum Therapy has many benefits over traditional gum therapy. Some of the benefits of Laser Gum Therapy include less pain, less bleeding, less swelling, a reduced risk for developing infection and a much faster healing time!
