It is estimated that, right now, nearly 75-80% of adults around the world have some form of gum disease. It is an infection of the gums and bone that support the teeth, and if left untreated, it can lead to tooth loss and even increase a person’s risk of developing other serious diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and dementia.
To make sure this global problem isn’t an issue for our patients, we utilize the LANAP® Laser. This tool uses a highly-focused beam of light to kill harmful bacteria located along the gum line as well as painlessly remove infected tissue. The entire process is minimally invasive, and thanks to the laser’s precision, it’s able to do all of this without affecting any of the surrounding healthy tissue, creating a better overall patient experience.
If your gums are red, swollen, tender, or bleed often, you may already be dealing with gum disease. Don’t wait to get treatment—contact us today, and we’ll take care of it before it can do any real damage.
