Gum disease, the major cause of tooth loss is an infection of the bone and gums which support your teeth. Bacteria accumulate in pockets between the teeth and gums and if left untreated, destroy the connective fibres. In mild cases, proper dental hygiene can help prevent further decay, but what happens when it gets so bad that your teeth are at stake?
In such a situation, lasers can come as a blessing in disguise. At Smilekraft Dentistry, we use the Waterlase laser to treat gum disease and many other dental issues. Dr. Priyank Mathur explains the benefits of the Waterlase laser in the treatment of gingivitis and periodontis.
“After cleaning and scaling your teeth, laser comes in as a second step. It selectively removes diseased or infected tissue that line the pockets around your teeth. At the same time, it kills the bacteria that cause the gum disease and promote healing of the gums by increasing circulation and collagen formation at the bottom of the periodontal pockets. In particular, the Waterlase laser combines water, air and laser energy which hydrates your teeth and gums, thereby giving you a virtually pain-free experience”, he says.
