Laser Treatment for Gum Disease

Laser gum treatment

 

Periodontal disease is also known as gum disease. This  is caused by bacteria in plaque. If the bacteria is not consistently removed, they builds up and  infect your teeth, gums, lower gum tissue and eventually the bone that supports your teeth – a common cause of tooth loss. There are three stages when it comes to its progression: gingivitis, periodontitis, and advanced periodontitis; the longer the disease has to advance, the more damage it causes. Fear not as Eledent hospitals is here to help you out on your gum related problems. Our team can discover periodontal disease early and begin treatment before complicated issues arise.

Common Signs of Gum Disease:

  • Red, tender and swollen gums that bleed  especially during brushing or flossing
  • Constant bad breath or bad taste in your mouth
  • Gum line receding or in some cases it is where the  gums are pulled away from teeth and forming pockets
