Perio laser therapy is one of the most important advancements in dental care, particularly for the treatment of gum disease. In many cases, treating periodontal disease is a necessary preparation for a cosmetic procedure, such as dental implants or crowns.
Below, you’ll find more information about the perio laser procedure and why it is needed for some patients.
What is Periodontal Disease?
Periodontal disease is an infection of the tissue and bone that hold your teeth in place. There are several factors that can contribute to periodontal disease, such as poor oral hygiene, smoking, illness and even certain medications.
Gum disease is typically caused by a combination of several types of bacteria. Bacteria can cling to the surface of a tooth’s root and even harden over time. The result is often gum inflammation that leads to the destruction of tissue and can even weaken the bone that supports your teeth.
What are the Benefits of Laser Gum Treatment?
Laser gum therapy has helped us make strides in advancing the treatment of periodontal disease. With Laser Gum therapy we are able to specifically target those bacteria responsible for gum disease with little to no discomfort.
At Dental Studio 101 we believe laser therapy should be combined with traditional scaling and root planning or deep cleaning, to optimize the beneficial outcomes of both procedures. Using this combination of therapies we are able to help patients treat their gum disease and maintain a healthy mouth. A healthy mouth can be the beginning of health whole body health.
