What Is a Laser Dentist?
A dentist who practices laser periodontics uses the power of light and heat to treat oral health and gum problems. Laser treatments’ popularity continues to increase. It is safe and often more convenient and accurate than traditional treatments. Rather than using scalpels and drills, laser technology is deployed and focused directly on a targeted area. This minimizes the risk of negatively impacting other parts of the mouth that don’t need to be treated. Laser treatments are highly versatile and can treat minor and severe gum and mouth diseases, infections, and conditions.
Do I Need Laser Periodontal Treatment?
Gum issues are common, but that doesn’t mean they’re harmless. Gum disease occurs when bacteria infect and fester below the gum line. If the bacteria are left untreated and allowed to thrive, they can eventually sever the connection between your teeth and gums. This results in tooth and gum decay and rotting and can spread infection throughout the mouth. Our laser treatments will target areas of the mouth infected by bacteria and carefully sanitizes them. It will gradually eradicate the bacteria and infection from the targeted area and allow you to recover. Please schedule an appointment with us for a periodontal health exam if you experience any of the following:
- Painful gums
- Receding gums
- Swollen gums
- Bleeding gums
- Abnormally colored gums
- Poor breath or oral hygiene
