Did you know that three out of four Americans have some form of gum disease? According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, half of American adults over the age of 30 have mild, moderate or severe periodontitis, which the stage of gum disease that surpasses gingivitis. While gingivitis is reversible with improved at-home oral care, periodontitis requires professional intervention to appropriately treat. Thanks to our advanced laser gum therapy technology, you can expect a far more comfortable treatment!
Laser dentistry makes use of powerful light beams to disinfect and evaporates diseased or infected gum tissue, especially around the tooth and inside the gum pocket. This gives damaged areas a chance to heal. Traditionally, metal tools would be used to break down and remove tissue, but this would often lead to gum tissue that didn’t need to be removed as well as longer healing times.
Regardless of the type of treatment it is used for, laser dentistry is completely safe to use when performed by a professional. Prior to your treatment, we’ll make sure to answer any questions you have about your treatment and put you at ease. Many patients are actually quite surprised by how comfortable their periodontal therapy becomes once they opt for laser dentistry.
