Laser Gum Therapy
LASER TREATMENT FOR GUM DISEASE
Everyday we use our teeth to chew and grind food. Without proper oral hygiene, suck as flossing and brushing regularly food, plaque, and bacteria accumulates around teeth and gums. As a result, accumulated food becomes hard or calcified and will cause gum inflammation which could be noticed when gums begin to bleed during brushing or flossing. Your dentist can help you over come this matter by diagnosing proper cleaning. In many cases when the amount of calcified food build is tenacious, brushing or flossing is not the solution to removing them. Scaling and root planning is required to removed calculus or tartar.
In addition to removing the calculus build up above and below the gum lines, laser gum therapy is one of the most effective treatments in eradicating bacteria within the gum. The laser beam travels through the gum and with its specific wavelength it removes the diseases tissue inside the pocket. The laser fibers selectively removes the diseased tissue and kills the bacteria that cause gum infection while leaving healthy tissue unharmed. This also helps access and visibility for better removal of barnacles and calculus from surfaces of the teeth. Once the bacteria is removed the area around the tooth is healthy and clean and the regeneration of gum begins.
