Laser Periodontal Therapy

Poor gum health can have more consequences than you realize. Complications from advanced gum disease actually lead all other causes of tooth loss for adults, and there are links between troubled periodontal health and general conditions like heart disease. Our practice can assist patients affected by an infection through the use of advanced laser technology. Using these tools means providing more precise and comfortable care, and it also means an easier recovery from treatment!

Why Gum Disease Is Not Something You Should Take Lightly

Your periodontal health affects your risk for tooth loss, and it can interfere with your general health.  The infection is linked to systemic threats that include hypertension, stroke, heart attack, osteoporosis, and more.

Gingivitis is the first stage of an infection, one that forms as bacteria make their way under the gumline. While it is reversible at this stage, the condition will worsen as time passes and the microbes continue to spread and cause harm to surrounding living tissues. The more advanced infection, known as periodontitis, can be effectively managed to prevent complications and health threats.

Using Laser Technology To Treat Periodontal Problems

With the aid of laser technology, we can make the work of treating unhealthy gums more comfortable and precise. We rely on Diode laser therapy to carefully remove bacteria and infected tissues.This work removes unhealthy materials and encourages healthy growth to replace what was lost. This work can also help seal a vulnerable area and protect against the formation of new periodontal pockets.

Laser treatments fight infection and remove unhealthy tissues that are a source of trouble for your well-being. This technology minimizes tissue damage and bleeding, and it can even remove the need for suturing after work is complete. Because we preserve more of the surrounding healthy gums and bone tissues, your recovery time is shorter and easier as well.
