Lasers Help Comfortably Treat Gum Disease

THE CDC RECENTLY RELEASED a report stating that nearly half of American adults have some form of gum disease. And 70% of Americans over the age of 65 have gum disease. Here at Robert C. Brei DDS, we’re dedicated to controlling and eradicating gum disease in our patients.

Gum disease is an inflammatory disease that affects gum tissue and the bones that support our teeth. Gum disease has also been found, in some studies, to increase the likelihood of several serious diseases including heart disease, diabetes and respiratory disease.

Modern Laser Therapy Is Amazing For Treatment

Modern dentistry has found that lasers can be very effective in treating gum disease.

What type of laser therapy do you use?

Biolase all-tissue laser technology represents the ultimate in patient comfort and clinical excellence. Our cutting edge laser technology has elevated the standard of care and greater comfort for our patients. Our office is committed to state of the art dental equipment that is only used if it is better for our patients overall dental treatment and experience.

What experiences have other patients had?

Patients reported little or no pain during or after treatment with a dental laser. With many people reporting fear of pain as their chief reason for not seeking dental care, lasers may offer a more acceptable treatment technique.

How Laser Therapy Works

Laser therapy can be used in several different ways:

  • It can be used to remove the diseased tissue from around and between teeth.
  • When someone has gum disease, there is a buildup of tartar and minerals around the roots of the teeth. Lasers may be used to remove this buildup and help clean out the gum pockets.
  • Lasers can be used in conjunction with traditional methods such as scaling to remove the diseased gum and bacteria from around teeth.

What Are The Advantages Of Laser Therapy?

  • Less bleeding, swelling and discomfort
  • Only local anesthesia is used, which means you can drive yourself home from treatment.
  • Your mouth will heal more quickly. There is no cutting or stitches involved.
  • Some lasers have been found to quicken/promote the regeneration process of the gums and affected bones.
