Periodontal Therapy Services
Gum disease is serious – it can have an impact not only in your mouth, but on your overall health. One of the most serious of these associated conditions is heart disease, definitely not something to be taken lightly. Most people are familiar with gingivitis, but less-well known is the far more difficult to treat “periodontitis.” This condition makes it impossible to clean the bacteria out from the periodontal pockets with regular brushing and flossing. Laser periodontal therapy is 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. Left untreated, periodontitis can cause tooth loss and even more serious health problems such as heart disease, diabetes, premature births and cancer to name a few.
