Our Laser Keeps Your Treatment Comfortable

Did you know that gum disease is a leading cause of tooth loss among adults? We don’t want you to become an unfortunate statistic, and you won’t with our treatment.. We’ll put your gum health back on track so your pearly whites stay in your mouth where they belong. We use a safe, low-power dental laser to perform a deep-cleaning procedure called scaling and root planing on your gums. Here’s how it works:

  • The laser will gently remove plaque, tartar, and bacteria from around and beneath your gumline, resealing your gum tissue as it works.
  • We’ll then smooth your teeth roots so that bacteria has a more difficult time accumulating there.
  • Your gums will begin the healing process so you can enjoy good oral health again.
  • This treatment may need to be repeated every few months to keep gum disease away.

If you are prone to gum disease, you may want to join our in-house membership club to save money on your periodontal cleanings. Ask a member of our staff for details.

Common Questions About Gum Disease Treatment

What is gum disease treatment?

Gum disease treatment is designed to remove plaque, tartar, and bacteria from around and under your gumline. Your hygienist or dentist will use special instruments to carefully get your gums back into shape, or they will use a gentle laser to remove damaged gum tissue and seal your gums back at the same time.

What causes gum disease?

Gum disease, also called periodontal disease, is an infection caused by bacteria in your mouth. Bacteria form a clear, sticky film called plaque that build ups around your gumline, leading to inflamed and infected gums. Left untreated, the infection causes your gums to separate from teeth, creating “pockets” where more bacteria accumulates. In advanced stages of gum disease, the infection spreads from your gums to the bone that supports your teeth. Your teeth will loosen and possibly fall out.

Can you cure gum disease at home?

No, you can’t cure gum disease at home – not even in its early stages. Gum disease is caused when bacteria-filled plaque and tartar build up in the area between your teeth and gums. This area can’t be reached with a toothbrush or floss. Using special equipment, your dental team removes all of the bacteria from this area and then smoothes your tooth roots to make it difficult for more bacteria to accumulate.
