Gum disease is a serious problem that can lead to loose
teeth, missing teeth, a loss of bone or even heart problems. Some causes of the
disease include genetics, poor oral hygiene, smoking or taking certain
medications. Luckily, treatments such as laserdentistry
have made it easier to fight periodontal disease.
Benefits of Laser
Laser dentistry has
many benefits over traditional treatment for gum disease. One of the biggest
benefits is that lasers are very precise, making it easier for them to target
the exact area that is diseased. The precision means more of your healthy gum
tissue will be salvageable. In addition, lasers do not require general
anesthetic, and for most patients, there is minimal bleeding, swelling and
pain. This means recovery time is often faster so that people can return to
work or other responsibilities much more quickly.
How We Do the
When you come to see our dentists, Dr. Bradley A. Ross,
D.M.D. and Dr. Scott B. Ross, D.D.S., P.A., we begin by pre-testing the
bacteria to determine how much infection is in your gums. Next, we use laser
treatments to decontaminate the deep pockets. After decontamination, we use a
microscope and the laser to provide treatment. Finally, we will test to ensure
our laser treatment results are valid. Depending on your level of infection,
you may need to attend several check-up appointments to ensure no further
treatment is necessary.
Do not let gum disease take over your life. Schedule a
consultation and laser gum treatment by contacting our team at South Florida
