Periodontal Disease Requires Prompt Treatment
Periodontal disease, commonly known as gum disease, is a degenerative condition that is caused by bacteria in plaque. As the plaque builds up on the teeth and below the gum line, the bacteria may cause inflammation and infection in the gum and supporting tissues. As the infection progresses, you may experience symptoms that include soreness, bleeding gums, pain when chewing, and tooth loss.
If left untreated, gum disease may lead to:
- Tooth loss
- Bone loss
- Receding gums
Good oral hygiene at home and regular dental visits help prevent gum disease and detect it before the problem gets worse. During routine exams, we evaluate the health of your gums to identify and treat gum disease in its early stages. Through treatment, we strive to halt the progress of gum disease and encourage the growth of healthy tissue.
Advantages of Laser Treatment for Gum Disease
At Bayside Laser Dental, we offer laser dentistry in Queens to treat gum disease. Laser gum treatment is effective for killing bacteria, removing infected tissue, and encouraging the growth of healthy tissue. When making decisions about the treatment of periodontal disease, there are several advantages to laser treatment over traditional surgery techniques.
Laser treatment for periodontal disease offers benefits that include:
- More comfortable than traditional surgery
