Lasers Can Help Treat Gum Disease
Posted on 8/30/2018 by The team at DDI
One of the most important innovations in medicine today is the use of lasers. They can help doctors in many ways. Our dental professionals are turning to lasers to help treat gum disease. They offer many benefits over other forms of treatments. The benefits are why more dental professionals are turning to lasers to help people deal with the problems associated this gum disease. What Can Lasers Do? The first question that people ask is are the lasers safe. Many people associate lasers with the guns used in science fiction movies. These are not the types of lasers used by our dentists. Once reassured that the laser will not hurt them, the next question people ask is what do the lasers do. Gum disease is an infection of the tissue and bones that support the teeth. Left untreated gum disease can lead to the loss of teeth and other serious health issues. Symptoms of gum disease include loose teeth, swelling or inflammation of the gums and bleeding of the gums. One form of treatment for gum disease is surgery to remove the infected tissue in the gums. This involves the use of a scalpel and stitches to close the wound the scalpel creates. Laser therapy replaces the use of the scalpel. The laser removes the infected tissue and exposes the root. This allows the dental surgeon to scrape the plaque and bacteria causing the gum disease. The use of the laser limits bleeding. There is also less swelling after the procedure and it decreases the recovery time. The laser is more accurate, and anesthesia is not always required as it is with other forms of dental surgery. If you have any questions about laser treatments or any other forms of treatment our professionals offer, feel free to contact us today....
