Our Dental Laser Keeps Gum Treatment Comfortable

We treat gum disease with a deep cleaning treatment called scaling and root planing. We can make the process easier and more comfortable by using a dental laser. The procedure involves:

  • Removing inflamed tissue, if necessary, to expose your tooth roots
  • Eliminating the plaque, bacteria, and tartar that has built up below the gumline, causing infection
  • Smoothing your tooth roots to make it less likely for bacteria to accumulate

Using a laser makes this treatment faster and more comfortable for you, while making it easier for us to target only diseased tissue. We’ll numb your mouth with local anesthesia, but you can also choose to receive dental sedation for added comfort.

Maintain Healthy Gums by Seeing Us for Signs of Gum Disease

Gum disease has a minimal impact on oral health if treated in its early stages. It becomes serious enough to cause tooth loss in its later stage, called periodontitis. So don’t ignore these symptoms:

  • Gums that look more red than pink
  • Chronic bad breath
  • Gum tenderness
  • Gums that bleed when brushing or flossing
