Do you suspect your gums are ailing (red, bleeding, inflamed, or receding), or have you experienced periodontal disease in the past? Our Seattle dentist urges you to schedule an appointment to have your gums checked out. If it’s been years since you’ve had periodontal treatment for periodontal disease, our contemporary dental tools may surprise you. Rather than relying on traditional scaling and root planing tools, we now offer laser periodontal therapy. Laser therapy offers key advantages for our patients, but there are still a few ongoing habits to keep in mind post-treatment. This week’s blog post discusses laser periodontal therapy and your life after therapy to help you establish the healthiest possible habits for your teeth and gums.
Why We Choose Laser Periodontal Treatment for our Patients
Laser perio treatmentis effective, comfortable, and tissue-specific. It attacks disease while preserving healthy tissue. Lasers allow us to delve deep below the gum line without causing patients as much discomfort as a deep scaling and planing can. You will likely require less anesthesia and have a faster recovery time, thanks to lasers’ narrow beams and self-cauterizing nature.
While laser periodontal treatment has many advantages, there are still things to remember about your life after periodontal treatment.
Periodontal disease can be dealt with. We just need to work hand in hand to keep your smile healthy. If you’d like to learn more about laser periodontal therapy or life after periodontal disease, please get in touch with our Seattle dentist.
