Treat Gum Disease With Gentle Laser Gum Surgery

Gum disease is a common problem for many patients and the leading cause of tooth loss today. Nearly 65 million Americans are affected by gum disease, many of whom are not even aware. Gum disease not only affects your oral health and smile – the progressive periodontal infection has also been linked to systemic health problems like diabetes, heart disease and pregnancy risks, among others. Caused by bacteria toxins, gum disease gradually destroys the gums and bone that support the teeth. Significant bone loss can occur when left untreated, causing tooth loss that affects your ability to eat, speak and smile with confidence. At Select Dental, we use advanced laser technology proven to deliver high patient outcome and clinical results. Our laser gum surgery approach is gentle, minimally invasive, and allows for a faster return to oral health.

The Stages of Gum Disease

Gingivitis

Gingivitis

Gingivitis is the beginning stage of gum disease. When diagnosed and treated in this stage, gingivitis is completely reversible and does not cause permanent damage to the gum and bone tissues.

Periodontitis

Periodontitis

In the periodontitis stage, the gum tissues start to pull away from tooth surfaces and bacterial toxins cause the body to begin breaking down bone around the teeth. Periodontal pockets (spaces between the teeth and gums) form, allowing for further proliferation of harmful oral bacteria beneath the gum line.

Advanced Periodontitis

Advanced Periodontitis

Advanced periodontitis is characterized by deeper pocketing around teeth, advancing bone loss and tooth mobility. Teeth may become lost or require extraction without effective, timely gum disease treatment.

Our Laser Gum Surgery Approach

Our caring team is devoted to providing positive treatment experiences and helping our patients enjoy healthy smiles for life. Though traditional osseous surgery is still a viable gum disease treatment, our multi-specialty team at Select Dental uses advanced laser gum surgery for the wealth of benefits this technology brings to patients. Our powerful yet gentle soft tissue laser eliminates bacteria, while vaporizing infected tissue and stimulating new bone growth. Laser gum surgery specifically targets diseased areas deep below the gumline without causing harm to surrounding tissues. With laser gum surgery, patients enjoy greater treatment comfort, faster healing and less time in the dental chair, as we can treat multiple sites within a single visit.
