Signs of Gum Disease
Gum (periodontal) disease is a serious condition that can severely harm your oral health. From the earliest, reversible stage of gingivitis to chronic periodontitis, patients generally experience bleeding or sensitive gums, persistent bad breath, and loosening teeth. Since nearly 50 percent of adults over the age of 30 have some form of gum disease, timely and effective treatment is critical to maintaining great oral and overall health. Putting off gum disease treatment will only further harm your gums and teeth, which may increase your risk for developing systemic conditions as well. If you are showing signs of gum disease, we recommend you visit our office and receive our minimally invasive laser gum therapy.
The Laser Gum Therapy Advantage
Traditional gum (osseous) surgery cuts a flap in the gums that is folded back to allow cleaning of the diseased tissue from around the tooth root. Once the area is thoroughly cleaned, the gums are sutured back in place to encourage reattachment to the teeth. With the introduction of laser technology like the BIOLASE® WaterLase Express™ and EZlase™ we use in-house, gum disease treatment is now faster, more effective, and less invasive than ever before. The need for scalpels, cutting, or sutures is minimized and the outcome is typically quicker to heal with less pain and bleeding. Dr. James Rogers is trained in laser gum therapy to gently eliminate diseased gum tissue without harming healthy gums or bones.
