Good oral health goes beyond maintaining healthy and strong pearly whites; it also includes healthy gums. Gum disease is a common oral health problem millions across America face.
Any infection of your gums, which is all the tissue surrounding and supporting your teeth, is gum disease. If left untreated, gum disease can lead to severe complications that could cause tooth loss, bone damage, and even heart disease.
The good news is that there are several treatment options for gum disease, with laser gum therapy being the most advanced. It uses cutting-edge technology to provide pain-free but effective treatment for gum disease.
At Lancaster Dental Care Associates in Lancaster, California, we understand gum disease can be painful and significantly affect your quality of life, which is why our team of experienced and skilled dental professionals uses advanced laser gum therapy technology to provide painless and effective treatment for gum disease.
We break down what to expect from laser gum therapy and help you understand if it's the proper treatment for you.
What is Laser Gum Therapy?
Laser gum therapy uses advanced technology to treat gum disease in a minimally invasive and pain-free procedure. During a procedure, we use SOL® laser energy to target and remove bacteria from infected gum tissue without harming the surrounding healthy tissues.
Laser gum therapy also promotes healing in infected tissues by stimulating the regeneration of healthy tissues. Unlike traditional gum disease treatments, such as surgery, laser gum therapy does not cut or involve suturing, minimizing pain, swelling, bleeding, and recovery downtime.
Benefits of laser gum therapy
Laser gum therapy has many benefits over traditional gum surgery. The most appealing benefit is that it's practically painless and guarantees minimal bleeding and discomfort.
Laser gum therapy is highly effective in targeting and removing the bacteria in the infected gum tissue while leaving surrounding healthy tissues intact.
Laser gum therapy also provides precise treatment, allowing us to target tiny areas of your gum without disrupting healthy tissues around the affected area.
Is laser gum therapy right for you?
Laser gum therapy is ideal for anyone looking to avoid gum surgery due to a pre-existing condition or lifestyle reasons.
Gum surgery can be painful and intense. Depending on the severity of your condition, significant cutting and suturing are required to remove and repair infected tissue. The procedure also causes much swelling and bleeding and requires extensive recovery downtime.
Laser gum therapy requires no recovery time; you can resume your typical daily activities immediately after the procedure.
Laser gum therapy may be the right treatment option if you suffer from gum disease. It’s essential to schedule an appointment with us to determine if you are a good candidate for this treatment. We thoroughly evaluate your gums and teeth and discuss your options with you.
