A: When gum disease progresses beyond the early stage of gingivitis and into the moderate to advanced stages, we classify it as periodontal disease. It starts as an infection of the gums where plaque and bacteria accumulate and cause loss of attachment of the gum tissue. It then progresses to the bone and supportive structures of the teeth and, without treatment from Dr. Scott Ross and Dr. Bradley Ross, can result in tooth loss.
A: Laser treatment for gum disease promotes fast healing of the tissues and, since it is a minimally invasive procedure, will not usually cause gum recession. It can effectively save teeth that would otherwise be extracted or at a higher risk of damage after traditional gum surgery.
