Preserve Healthy Teeth And Gums With Periodontal Treatment!
Gum disease is a common oral health issue affecting millions worldwide. Also known as periodontal disease, gum disease can cause severe damage to the gums and supporting structures if left untreated. At Dearborn Family Smiles in Dearborn, we proudly use the Perio laser as an effective treatment option for combating gum disease.
What is gum disease?
Gum disease starts with plaque build-up, a sticky film of bacteria that forms on the teeth. If not removed through regular brushing and flossing, plaque hardens into tartar, leading to inflammation and infection of the gums. The initial stage of gum disease, known as gingivitis, is characterized by red, swollen, and bleeding gums. Left untreated, it can progress to periodontitis, causing gum recession, loose teeth, and even tooth loss.
How is gum disease treated at Dearborn Family Smiles?
The Perio laser is a minimally invasive procedure that uses a laser to remove infected tissue, kill bacteria, and stimulate healing. The laser energy precisely targets the affected areas, allowing for a more targeted and efficient treatment. The procedure is virtually painless and does not require anesthesia in most cases.
What are the benefits of the Perio Laser?
The Perio laser is precise and minimally invasive while preserving healthy gum tissue. This results in the following:
Reduced Discomfort: The Perio laser procedure is gentler than traditional gum surgery. Patients experience minimal discomfort during and after treatment.
Precision and Efficiency: The laser technology removes diseased tissue while keeping healthy tissue intact. This accuracy promotes faster healing and reduces the risk of complications.
Minimal Bleeding and Swelling: The Perio laser effectively seals blood vessels, resulting in minimal bleeding during treatment. Additionally, the laser's sterilizing effect reduces the risk of infection, leading to reduced swelling and faster recovery.
