Periodontal disease sometimes requires more thorough cleaning than traditional tools can provide. Periodontal disease, also called gum disease, is severe inflammation and infection of the gum tissue caused by the bacteria in plaque. When plaque sits on the teeth for too long, it can infect the gums surrounding them. This can cause the gums to recede or draw back from the teeth, and since the gums are crucial for keeping teeth secure, this may lead to teeth loosening or even falling out. Laser gum treatment can kill the harmful bacteria and remove damaged tissue. The goal is to stop the progression of the disease and encourage new healthy gum tissue to grow.
The use of dental lasers enables our dentist to provide more comfortable treatment, and in fact, anesthetic may not always be needed. Lasers also allow our team to provide treatment that is more efficient and precise, meaning less bleeding and reduced need for stitches. Recovery is usually quicker and easier after laser procedures, and the risk of infection is much lower.
