Laser Dentistry Gum Disease Treatment

Laser Dentistry Gum Disease Treatment - Los Angeles Family Dentist Laser dentistry is used in several dental treatments to make them easier, faster, and more comfortable for the patient. Advanced laser dentistry for gum disease is no different. At Downtown Dental in Los Angeles, our office is equipped with sophisticated laser therapy tools to destroy the infection behind gum disease and promote the regeneration of healthy gum tissue.

Why You Need a Dentist’s Help to Eliminate Gum Disease

Nearly half of all adults in the United States suffer from some form of gum disease, be it gingivitis or advanced periodontitis. Regardless of the stage you may be living with, treatment is critical, and the sooner you can address this problem the better it will be for your oral health and overall well-being.

Treatment for gum disease begins with a deep cleaning. Typically, root planing and scaling are used to scrape away the build-up around the gumline, but most patients find this treatment unpleasant. In fact, knowing that this is the only treatment option keeps some people from even approaching their dentist for help.

Gum disease is not a condition that will ever clear up on its own – no true dental problem ever will. You need the help of your Los Angeles dentist to fix it so that you don’t progress to tooth loss. Laser dentistry helps gum disease feel far more manageable, especially for patients who are concerned about discomfort.

At Downtown Dental, we use a Perio-Lase MVP-7 laser tool and treat patients for gum disease under local anesthetic. More advanced sedation can be discussed and used, if necessary. The laser treatment destroys the bacteria that have come to fester in and around the gums, and it is a treatment that minimizes bleeding and swelling while allowing for faster healing.

We also employ the innovative LANAP laser dentistry in our Los Angeles office, a cutting-edge procedure that makes periodontal regeneration possible. Even if you have advanced gum disease, your gum tissue can be treated to grow back with this revolutionary laser dentistry measure.

Treating Gum Disease with Laser Dentistry

When you can have your gum disease treated with laser dentistry, there are no scalpels and sutures, and you will appreciate benefits such as:
  • Minimal bleeding
  • Reduced swelling
  • Speedier healing
  • Lower chance of infection
  • Reduced sensitivity
  • Lower chance of gum loss or recession

Even with laser dentistry, your gum disease treatment is likely to take a few sessions to fully treat your mouth. Though the treatments are gentle, especially when compared with traditional gum disease therapy. The super-fine laser is inserted between the gum and tooth and targets only the diseased areas of the gum, thereby reducing inflammation, clearing away infection, and leaving healthy gum tissue alone.

Repair Your Smile After Laser Dentistry

Once your mouth is free of infection and fully healed, something that happens faster and with far less discomfort thanks to laser dentistry, it will be time to talk to your Los Angeles about restorative dentistry.

Some people opt to spruce up their smile with a cosmetic procedure like teeth whitening, but many patients who have lost teeth to gum disease need to think about filling in the holes in their smile. This can be done in several ways, depending on how many teeth were lost and in what part of your mouth. Dental bridges, dentures, and dental implants are all viable, long-lasting, natural-looking solutions to make your smile complete again.
