Periodontal disease is usually seen in patients in their 30s and 40s, according to the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research. They also go on to state that most adults in the US have some form of periodontal disease.
It sounds scary but they are plenty of options for treating this common plague. One of the most technologically advanced is Laser Gum Therapy. Our dental professionals use laser tools to aid in their gum-cleaning efforts and treat tooth decay, periodontal disease, remove lesions and even whiten teeth.
In terms of gum health, lasers are a safe and effective way to clean deeper than some other tools can penetrate. Eliminating bleeding of the gums, sealing deep pockets, reducing loose teeth, and regenerating bone are just a couple of the other pros in terms of using this form of treatment.
Christensen Dental looks forward to helping you achieve a healthier mouth with Laser Gum Therapy.
