Laser Therapy For Treating Gum Disease

May 14th, 2018 Posted by Laser Dentistry 0 comments on “Laser Therapy For Treating Gum Disease”

laser dentistry - Brevard, NCIt’s estimated that over half of American adults have some degree of gum disease. Gingivitis is the first stage of gum disease, while periodontitis and advanced periodontitis are the more severe stages. Gingivitis can often be reversed simply by regular brushing and flossing and making sure to visit the dentist twice a year for cleanings.

Gum Disease and advanced periodontitis typically need a targeted approach from your dentist. Typical treatment includes scaling and root planing at the dentist’s office. This non-surgical procedure cleans the tartar, plaque and bacteria from the tooth and near the gum tissue. The soft tissue around the teeth may need to be reshaped or treated to ensure that the teeth are stable.

Laser dentistry in Brevard, NC is one approach to treating gum disease. The infected tissue can be removed. While the root of the tooth is exposed, the calculus and plaque can be scraped off. The dentist will smooth out the root of the tooth that could attract bacteria. Laser therapy promotes healing because the area between the gum and root will regenerate during the healing process.
