Has a dental professional told you that you have periodontal disease? If so, it is important that you seek treatment to keep the condition from getting worse. We perform laser gum treatment in Longmont, Colorado, at our state-of-the-art dental office as a way of managing periodontal disease.
What Is Periodontal Disease?
Periodontal disease, which is more commonly referred to as gum disease, is a degenerative condition caused by the bacteria found in plaque. Once you have periodontal disease, there is no way of reversing the condition, however, we can help you manage it to protect your oral health. If left untreated, gum disease can lead to tooth loss, bone loss and gum recession.
What Is a Laser Gum Treatment and How Does It Help?
One of the ways Dr. Todd M. Roby helps patients manage periodontal disease, is with laser dentistry. The dental laser is used to kill bacteria found in the mouth. It also can remove infected tissue and promote the growth of new, healthy tissue.
Laser gum treatment is efficient and comfortable. In fact, in many cases, you may not even need an anesthetic, however, we will gladly provide one if you need it. There is no need for stitches, there is less risk of infection, and the dental laser minimizes bleeding and discomfort.
