Lasers Help Comfortably Treat Gum Disease

Modern Laser Therapy Effectively Treats Gum Disease

Gum disease is an inflammatory disease that affects gum tissue and the bones that support our teeth. Gum disease has also been found, in some studies, to increase the likelihood of several serious diseases including heart disease, diabetes, and respiratory disease. Modern dentistry has found that lasers can be very effective in treating gum disease.

How Laser Therapy Works

Laser therapy can be used in several different ways:

  • It can be used to remove the diseased tissue from around and between teeth.
  • Laser emits concentrated beam of light energy to target and destroy bacteria beneath the gums.
  • Lasers can be used in conjunction with traditional methods such as scaling to remove the diseased gum tissue and bacteria from around teeth.

The Advantages of Laser Therapy

  • Less bleeding, swelling, and discomfort.
  • Anesthesia may not be necessary.
  • Your mouth will heal more quickly. There is no cutting or stitches involved.
  • Some lasers have been found to promote and quicken the regeneration process of the gums and affected bones.
