Get laser periodontal treatment to solve periodontal disease quickly! Periodontal disease is a bacterial infection of the gums. This infection starts with plaque buildup and food particles left on the teeth by improper oral hygiene (brushing and flossing). While the disease may start as a relatively minor irritation, these infections can quickly become more serious deteriorating the gums and other supporting tissue around your teeth. Periodontal disease is also known to impact your overall general health, contributing to health risks such as heart disease, stroke, low birth-weight babies, cancer and is even linked to Alzheimer’s disease. For this reason, it is vitally important to prevent these infections. The best way to prevent gum disease is to schedule regular dental cleanings and examinations.
Advanced periodontal treatment
When periodontal infections progress to advanced stages, they cannot be helped through regular oral hygiene appointments. In these cases, we recommend the gums receive a more advanced periodontal treatment.
New technology using laser treatment (therapy) is now available. During this procedure, we use a special laser to treat the gums and kill the infection. Laser therapy has a dramatically reduced pain and the healing period since there is no physical surgery on the gum tissue.
