Nonsurgical Laser Gum Treatment
Periodontal or gum disease happens when bacteria gets below the gum line and the attachment between the gum and tooth is lost. Three out of four Americans have some form of periodontal disease and only 3 out of 100 will ever get treated before its too late.
Gum disease is a silent, chronic, painless and communicable bacterial infection that often goes undetected or ignored until severe gum and bone destruction is unbearable and no longer able to be ignored. Left untreated, gum disease can cause tooth loss and traditional treatment can hurt.
Many times, the early stages of periodontal disease are best treated with Nonsurgical Laser Gum Treatment. Even in severe cases of periodontal disease, Nonsurgical Laser Gum Treatment often precedes surgical therapy. This is done to improve the overall tissue quality prior to surgery and also to help limit the areas requiring surgery.
Treatment methods depend upon the type of disease and how far the condition has progressed.
