Don’t let gum disease overtake your smile. If you have red, puffy or bleeding gums, seek treatment sooner rather than later. While early gum disease (gingivitis) is easily and conservatively treated, more advanced periodontal disease can cause major threats to your oral health and body health.
Don’t worry; if you failed to recognize and treat your gingivitis, there are advanced and non-surgical therapies available to help your gum infection. Peninsula Cosmetic & Family Dentistry proudly offers laser gum disease treatment.
How Lasers Address Gum Disease
Laser periodontics can be used as an alternative or adjunct to traditional periodontal surgery. A special dental laser uses concentrated light and specific wavelengths to remove diseased and inflamed gum tissue from the pocket as well as disease-causing bacteria. The laser is uniquely designed to only remove diseased tissue and leave healthy tissues intact. When using laser gum disease treatment, patients can take advantage of several benefits:
- Less discomfort
- Quicker recovery time
- No bleeding
- Highly precise, better results
At Peninsula Cosmetic & Family Dentistry, we proudly offer the Fotona Lightwalker Laser as an innovative and award-winning dental laser technology. When it comes to treating your gum disease that is not reversed with better brushing or a deep cleaning, laser treatment can be a welcome solution and help save your smile without invasive gum surgery.
Keep in mind that gum disease is an infection of your gums, but its consequences don’t always stay within your mouth. Untreated gum disease can lead to tooth loss and is linked to heart disease, stroke, diabetes, premature birth and other overall health conditions.
