Gum disease can be painless so keep an eye out for other symptoms, and see your dentist right away.
When your teeth are not cleaned regularly and properly, plaque will begin to build up. Plaque is a sticky substance that’s full of bacteria. It will harden into tartar, which cannot be removed with your toothbrush alone. Without professional cleaning, the bacteria will cause your gums to swell, bleed and eventually seep into your bones over the long term.
Laser Gum Treatment
Dental lasers offer a modern and less invasive method of treating gum disease. Your dentist will use the laser to remove the affected gum tissue from around your teeth. Once removed, your tooth’s root will be accessible so that the dentist can clean below your gum line, and smooth the root to prevent a future buildup of plaque.
With laser gum treatment, patients don’t require anesthesia, bleeding and pain are kept to a minimum, and the laser can reshape your gums precisely and accurately. Learn more about gum reshaping here.
