Laser Periodontal Care

Laser Periodontal Care

Are you living with gum disease? It’s time to act before continued bone loss results in the loss of your teeth. If you’ve been told that you needed surgery for your condition, there’s another option. As with all of our family dentistry treatments, laser periodontal care can provide you with excellent results and almost no discomfort.

Why consider laser gum treatments?

  • Faster recovery time
  • No need for surgical procedures
  • Improved tissue re-attachment

Soft tissue lasers treat gum disease by destroying active bacteria deep inside of the periodontal pocket (the space under the gum lines.) After having your teeth cleaned, the laser also treats the diseased pocket tissue so that it recovers quickly and can begin adhering directly to your tooth once again.

Laser periodontal therapy is performed during a deep cleaning so that the laser can access all necessary pocket areas and tooth surfaces. The laser eliminates disease and creates a sterile environment, which allows your body to respond better to the deep cleaning. It also creates a seal between your gum tissue and your tooth, encouraging a tight bond that prevents re-infection after your treatment.

Gum Disease Treatment

Surgical treatments aren’t your only option. Non-surgical laser therapy can help you control periodontal disease in just one easy visit to Cherokee Smiles. If you have been told that you need gum surgery due to periodontal disease, we offer a non-invasive alternative that isn’t available at most dental offices.

Unmanaged gum disease has a direct correlation with several health conditions including:

  • Cardiovascular diseases
  • Obesity
  • Diabetes
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Premature labor
  • Sleep apnea
