Laser Gum Treatments
Periodontal (gum) diseases are serious infections that can lead to tooth loss. Periodontal disease is a chronic bacterial infection that affects the gums and bone supporting the teeth. The two most common gum diseases are gingivitis and periodontitis.
Gingivitis is the mildest form of periodontal disease. It causes the gums to become red, swollen, and bleed easily. Untreated gingivitis can advance to periodontitis. Toxins produced by bacteria in plaque cause a chronic inflammatory response in which the tissues and bone that support the teeth are broken down and destroyed.
Painless laser Gum Treatments are effective in treating both gingivitis and periodontitis.
