Laser Treatment for Gum Disease

One of the most current and fascinating ways to treat gum disease has become the most popular in dental offices throughout the nation. Laser dentistry is making big strides in Chandler Arizona, and Dr. Patterson has obtained special licenses to treat gum disease with laser treatments.

Controlling Infection and Gum Disease

If you have ever had gum disease and been treated the conventional way for it, you know how painful and sore your gums can be afterward, and the higher risk of infection that can occur due to the treatment. Laser dentistry is lowering the infection issues that commonly appear before and after this procedure. Not only does the laser itself kill bacteria that causes gum disease, but the procedure is much gentler on your gums than the old fashion way of treating the issue. The laser is capable of removing old, diseased tissue without affecting healthy tissue or gums. In addition, patients are experiencing less inflammation, less discomfort, and an expedited healing process ensuring minimal opportunity for additional infection. These are impressive results, and Patterson Dental is proud to be able to offer another option to their patients who suffer from gum disease.

Patients Respond Well to Laser Dentistry

If you are one who suffers with gum disease or gingivitis, you will be encouraged to find out that gum disease responds exceptionally well to laser dentistry. What does this mean in the end? That your dentist can help you prevent a more advanced stage of gum disease, which leads to tooth loss, and treat your gum disease more efficiently. Gum disease can cause a plethora of other health issues if it is not treated properly. Some of those issues can include:

  • Heart Problems
  • Diabetes
  • Strokes
  • Arthritis
  • Oral Cancer
  • And more…
