Gum disease is a common dental problem, with a wide range of symptoms, from moderate to severe. What can begin as mild bleeding, tenderness, bad breath, or swelling can rapidly evolve into more serious problems, eventually threatening your natural teeth.
It’s also important to visit your dentist at least twice a year for a cleaning. This not only helps prevent issues like gum disease but also gives your dentist the opportunity to check for developing issues before they become more complicated and difficult to treat. Furthermore, Dr. Mukesh Patel in Ontario, CA, offers laser treatment for gum disease, which is a less invasive approach compared to scaling or root planing.
Laser gum disease treatment is a focused, low-impact alternative to more invasive or surgical procedures traditionally used to treat advanced gum disease, like in the case of root planing or scaling. Laser treatment is a “light touch” technology, treating only the affected area and without incisions or drills.
At your first appointment, Dr. Patel will go over your options and help you determine the best course of treatment. If laser treatment is right for you, he’ll use a narrow beam of laser energy to manipulate the tissues in your gums, carefully separating decayed or infected tissue from healthy tissue. With the infection removed, your teeth are protected, and your healthy tissue will able to restore itself naturally.
There are many benefits to laser gum disease treatment, including:
Laser treatment is one of the most advanced methods in the periodontal field, and Dr. Patel specializes in using laser treatment to treat gum disease to restore healthy tissue.
