Laser Gum Treatment
There is a reason why gum disease, or periodontal disease, is one of the most common and most serious dental problems. It tends to develop in ways you could dismiss as minor:
- Persistent bad breath
- Red or swollen gums
- Gum bleeds when brushing teeth
- Painful chewing
- Sensitive and/or loose tooth
Losing a tooth is just one of what could result from untreated gum disease. This problem is also noted to be linked with stroke and heart disease, and could even worsen cases of diabetes.
From Gingivitis to Periodontitis
Gum disease is what happens when a gum inflammation or gingivitis is overlooked or left unnoticed. Without proper and sufficient oral hygiene, bacterial growth leads to gum inflammation, forming pockets around the teeth which later gets infected from the debris it collects. This then destroys gum tissues and the bones surrounding the teeth, making it loose before actually losing it.
A Treatment that is Head-on
Medications and Deep Cleaning are two of the treatments you can avail for mild cases of gum disease. A cut-and-sew procedure seems to be the obvious option for treatment. Surgery can be an invasive treatment that would take time to recover from. However, it is not the only one. Because we value your convenience and comfort, we offer an alternative that promises good results.
We have adopted the LANAP (Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure) technology in our dental clinics to help you solve your periodontal problem in a more rapid, safe, and pain-free way. This technology uses laser light to gently remove harmful bacteria and diseased tissue from your gum pockets.
Aside from removing the bacteria, what is also great about the Laser Gum Treatment is that it also limits tooth sensitivity and gum recession. You will be glad to know and experience for yourself that it only takes less than 24 hours of recovery time for you to enjoy the results.
