Approximately half of all adults in the United States suffer from the effects of Gum disease, these effects can develop even further for those that don’t brush and floss every day. Regular visits to the dentist can help to prevent the advancement of this oral disease, laser gum disease treatment at Eastman Periodontics & Implants in Lakewood Ranch and Bradenton, FL may be beneficial in stopping it’s development. Even though it sounds super technical, opting for such treatment provides a wide variety of benefits, such as:
1. Faster Results
Laser dental treatments are fairly easy and typically all that is required is a single visit with our dentist. There are no blades involved in this minimally invasive treatment. You are likely to see quicker results because of the quality of the procedure, ensuring the gums will return to a healthier state earlier.
2. Less Pain
Instead of cutting off healthy and diseased tissue as is typical of conventional gum surgery, procedures with laser gum target the diseased areas and do not require cutting in the traditional sense. This means less discomfort is involved and even that can usually be handled with over – the-counter medications.
3. Higher Chance of Saving Your Teeth
Advanced gum disease is bad for business in regards to your teeth –it means they’re at a greater risk of falling out. Treatment for laser gum disease is an early intervention technique which can help you prevent tooth extraction.
4. Quicker Recovery Time
Due to its minimally invasive nature, it takes less time to heal from laser treatment than with traditional surgery. In some cases, you may be able to return to your normal activities within one to a few days. Your dentist can give you more information.
