Maybe you have some form/stage of gum disease or fear you may have it. Or, maybe you simply want to be on top of things so as to prevent gum disease before it ever happens. In either case, you can benefit from learning basic information relative to gums, gum disease, and laser periodontal treatment that is given below!
Caring for your teeth and gums ideally involves only preventive measures like a good oral hygiene regimen at home and regular visits to your periodontist for a check up. But when gingivitis or periodontitis develop, you will need to counteract it with some form of periodontal treatment.
Although laser periodontal surgery is often the superior technique to use in treating periodontal disease, especially in severe cases, it isn't the only treatment method nor is it always the most suitable for every situation.
In the last couple of decades, huge strides have been made in laser periodontal treatment, and today one periodontal laser has accomplished what can only be called a revolution in how periodontal therapy is done.
Around 3 million new cases of Periodontitis, the advanced stage of gum disease, are diagnosed in the US each year. And there are millions more cases of less severe periodontal disease (gingivitis), that go undiagnosed and untreated each year, and which will likely progress into periodontitis.
