Over 80% of the population will develop gum disease at some point in their lives. This happens when the natural bacteria which reside in the mouth begin working their way in between the gums and teeth. These germs will act to weaken the connection between the enamel and gum tissue, and can lead to serious complications like sensitive or bleeding gums, bad breath, and even tooth loss! We can quickly spot symptoms and indicators of gum disease during a normal appointment, which is why it’s so important to always attend regularly scheduled exams every six months. Florida Smiles Dental is ready to help you stop gum disease as soon as possible. Please call us today to schedule an appointment for periodontal therapy.
When gum disease is left unchecked, it can lead to periodontal disease. This occurs when the bacteria produce plaque that hardens and turns to calculus. This can’t be removed with a toothbrush, and its presence can completely compromise your oral health. For patients who are suffering from this disease, we can use periodontal therapy to help slow its detrimental effects.
At Florida Smiles Dental, we use the PerioLase MVP-7, which is one of the most advanced dental lasers of its kind, during all of our periodontal therapy. This laser offers precision during this procedure, which allows our team to preserve more of healthy parts of the gums than a traditional treatment would. Plus, due to the nature of the laser, it sterilize as we work on your smile and significantly reduces any chance of extenuating infection.
We find that using LANAP, or laser-assisted new attachment procedure, to address the needs of patients who are affected by periodontal therapy is ideal because it allows healthy gums to regenerate their tissue rather than making our patients live with lackluster oral health. We find that often after experiencing this form of periodontal therapy, a patient will form new connective tissues in their gums to replace the ones which were originally lost to gum disease. You can ask us more about benefits of periodontal therapy the next time you’re at our practice or by contacting us.
Please contact us today to schedule a periodontal therapy appointment at Florida Smiles Dental.
