Gum disease can lead to loose and lost teeth, bad breath and problems with your jaw. Gum disease has been linked to respiratory and cardiovascular issues and complications with diabetes. At our office, our team can use laser therapy to address gum disease by removing infected gum tissue and stimulating the growth of healthy periodontal tissue in its place. The laser is also used to eliminate the bacteria that contribute to gum disease and other health issues as well.
Laser therapy has a number of advantages. It usually does not require any local anesthetic and the process reduces the amount of bleeding, the required treatment time and the risk of infection. Stitches are frequently not needed following laser gum treatment. If you are concerned about gum disease, call our office today at 818-703-7733 for your appointment. At our office, your comfort is our priority, along with making sure that your treatment is effective and lasts you for a lifetime.
