Laser Gum Treatment
Periodontal disease, or gum disease as it’s also known, is a fairly common diseasethat can be hard to detect without a dentist’s help. Unfortunately, on their own, many people don’t realize they have the disease until it has reached an advanced stage.
That’s why it’s important to get your gums checked by a dentist as soon as possible if you have any concerns. Modern treatment for gum disease often includes laser therapy, which is an effective solution for removing or shaping gum tissue, and can often replace the need for more invasive treatments.

Signs of Periodontal disease
Gum disease occurs primarily because of an accumulation of bacteria in your mouth. It starts to form around the pockets where your gum and teeth meet, and emerges from the plaque that builds upon your teeth. If the plaque and tarter isn’t removed regularly, the bacteria tends to increase, which heightens your chance of getting gum disease.
Initially, you won’t feel much pain with gum disease, which is why many people won’t catch it in its initial stages without a dentist’s expertise. As the disease progresses, patients tend to develop red swollen gums that bleed when they floss or brush. Other symptoms include loose teeth or consistently bad breath.
Gum Disease Treatment
Gum disease is easily preventable with regular, professional teeth cleaning by your dentist. This will ensure all of the plaque and tarter is removed in order to prevent an unhealthy build up that can result in the harmful bacteria that contributes to gum disease.
For those who already have gum disease, there are a variety of surgical and non-surgical treatments available. The specific treatment we use will depend on how far each patient has progressed in their level of gum disease. Your dentist may use a laser to treat the gum tissue that’s inflamed around the root of your tooth. This will expose the root so that he/she can remove the buildup below the gum line and further smooth the root to prevent future infections.

Laser gum treatment is very effective when it comes to treating gum disease. There are a host of benefits, that are not instantly recognizable.
When left untreated, gum disease can result in the widening of your gum pockets to unhealthy amounts.Laser gum treatment enables your dentist to restore your gum pockets to a healthy level.
As your gums experience more damage from the disease and your gum pockets begin to widen, your teeth start to loosen up. This increases your chance of losing teeth over time. However, with laser gum treatment, you can prevent your teeth from becoming loose by reshaping the gums that surround them.
The bacteria that forms around your gums can become infected and lead to more serious dental conditions over time. Laser gum treatment eliminates the bacteria at the root of your teeth to prevent future infections.
With laser gum treatment, bleeding and swelling are limited because the laser therapy is less invasive than regular surgery, which typically involves drilling and anesthesia. The laser also seals your blood vessels, which encourages immediate blood clotting and reduced bleeding.
