What Is Gum Disease?
Gum disease is a progressive condition affecting the health of the gums and bone. If plaque, a sticky film of bacteria, builds up on the teeth, it can infect the gum tissue that surrounds them. This infection causes the gum tissue to pull away, forming deep spaces or “pockets” between the teeth and gums. Bacteria that become trapped in these spaces can further inflame the gum tissue and damage the bone. If gum disease is allowed to progress to advanced stages, the gums and bone can become irreversibly damaged, increasing the risk for loose teeth and even tooth loss. Seeking help at the first signs of gum disease, characterized by red and bleeding gums, is the best way to preserve the health of your smile. Using the REPAIR Perio™ protocol, we effectively treat any stage of gum disease with the BIOLASE® Waterlase Express® laser. This laser gum disease treatment is the minimally invasive alternative to traditional osseous surgery that enhances comfort during your procedure and promotes the long-term health of your smile.
Patient-Preferred Laser Gum Disease Treatment
Our dental laser technology allows us to treat your gum disease without needing to use scalpels or make incisions in your gums. Using lasers, we can painlessly eradicate the bacteria from below the tooth surface, effectively removing diseased gum tissue without causing trauma to healthy gums. Once the calculus has been cleared from the teeth, we use the laser again to cauterize the treatment site to stimulate the body’s regeneration of new bone and reattachment of healthy tissue to the teeth. With healthy tissue secured to the teeth, periodontal pocket depth is reduced or eliminated, making future bacterial invasion difficult. Due to the minimally invasive nature of laser gum disease treatment, your recovery will be fast, minimizing pain, swelling, and bleeding so you can return to normal activities sometimes the day of your treatment!
