Periodontal Therapy Services
Gum disease is serious – gum disease can affect your mouth and spread to affect your overall health. One of the most serious illnesses that can be caused from gum disease is heart disease. If gum disease has advanced to its later stages the condition can be difficult to clean the bacteria out from the periodontal pockets with regular brushing and flossing. Laser periodontal therapy is one of the only way to combat periodontitis.
We perform laser periodontal therapy by:
- Using lasers to target and kill the bacteria that cause periodontitis
- Sealing blood vessels and nerve endings to reduce pain, swelling, and bleeding
There are limited treatments for periodontitis. An advantage of using laser therapy to treat periodontal disease is that it is antibiotic-free and gets directly at the source of the bacteria causing the infection in your mouth. If left untreated, periodontitis can cause tooth loss and even more serious health problems such as heart disease, diabetes, premature births, and cancer.
