Gum disease can cause severe irritation of the gums, and to get rid of gum disease, the process was painful. Now, with new dental advances, patients no longer have to worry about painful gum disease procedures and long healing time.
Doctors now are turning to laser gum therapy. Laser therapy now kills the diseased gum without knives and sutures. The laser penetrates the area, killing off any of the infected spot, in a minimally invasive way, so healing time goes down and so does gum bleeding.
Laser gum therapy is now a way to treat gum disease, quickly and efficiently. Gum disease affects many people, and without treatment, the condition can worsen, causing periodontitis. It is imperative to treat gum disease and gum recession, because the lower your gums recede, the more your tooth and roots will be exposed.
Side effects you may experience from gum recession include:
After you undergo laser gum therapy, it is important to avoid tobacco products and alcohol. Brushing and flossing still should take place after treatment, but gently so your healing goes well.
If you are experiencing gum recession or have gum disease, seek dental treatment from your trusted dental professional. Your doctor will be able to effectively rectify your oral health issues while helping you maintain optimal oral health. If you are suffering from gum disease or think you may be a candidate for gum disease and gum recession, you should look for treatment immediately.
Schedule a consultation as soon as possible if you have been dealing with the above symptoms and side effects. It is important you stay on top of your oral health, so meet with the doctors today! You may be the perfect candidate for the minimally invasive treatment to heal your diseased gum.
