Modern technology has changed the way we live. Every day our lives are positively impacted by better and safer products and services. Dentistry is no exception. Many exciting breakthroughs in laser technology have benefited the way dentistry is performed. While many people fear dental care; they may not be aware of how technology has made dentistry less invasive, less painful and has given dentists the ability to heal common problems and achieve better results. One example is periodontal disease (gum disease). Most adults have some form of this disease that destroys the gum and the bone tissues that support the teeth. While our parents and grandparents had to settle for dentures when gum disease affected their teeth, today laser technology is another tool we can use to help treat periodontal disease, thus helping people retain their teeth for a lifetime. This treatment can also help prevent more serious systemic problems associated with the bacteria from periodontal disease entering the blood stream. These bacteria can contribute to heart disease, diabetes and other serious illnesses. By utilizing a laser it is possible to kill the bad bacteria and remove the disease less invasively (many times avoiding the surgical procedures of the past) and at a reduced cost to traditional surgery.
So, if you have been told that you are one of the millions of adult Americans that have gum disease, Laser Periodontal Treatment could greatly benefit you and your teeth.
