Gum (Periodontal) disease isn’t widely talked about, but it can have a major impact on your life. Gum disease is chronic inflammation and infection in the tissues and bone that surround and support your teeth. It is a major cause of tooth loss in adults. Chronic gum disease affects just under 50% of adults over 30 in the United States. It can lead to the loss of tissue and bone that support the teeth and it may become more severe over time.
Research shows a strong link between gum disease and several health problems– including heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and Alzheimer’s, but only a small percentage of these adults get the treatment they need. Patients suffering from gum disease often feel less confident and fear losing their teeth. Our office is proud to offer two treatment options for patients suffering from gum disease
Treatments for Gum Disease
Gum Infection Therapy (GIT) - The traditional deep cleaning procedure. This is an effective tool to SLOW the progression of gum disease, helping to reduce inflammation and help prevent further bone loss around your teeth.
Laser Renewal Therapy (LRT) - Our most advanced treatment option. With LRT, we are able to REVERSE the progression of gum disease and position your mouth for a miraculous recovery. Think of LRT as a fresh start for your teeth and gums! Our specialized laser is able to kill the bacteria deep in your mouth that traditional cleaning options simply can’t reach. The best part? LRT is minimally invasive, with no cutting or stitching and the majority of patients report minimal discomfort. Ask about our Laser Renewal Therapy today.
