Gentle Gum Disease Treatment
Periodontal Disease, also referred to as gum disease, is a chronic, painless and communicable infection that occurs when bacteria penetrates below the gum line. Unfortunately, periodontal disease often goes undetected or is ignored until severe gum and bone destruction is imminent. Left untreated, gum disease can cause tooth and bone loss. While traditional treatment for gum disease can be painful, laser therapy offers a gentle solution. The laser gently disinfects and evaporates infected tissues from around the tooth and inside the gum pocket. Laser treatment interrupts the bacterial destruction of the tissues and bone, giving the gum pocket a chance to heal.
