Healing Gum Disease with Laser Periodontal Therapy
More than 80 percent of American adults suffer from a persistent bacterial infection in their gums. In the early stages, gum disease may not seem obvious or even cause discomfort. It’s why getting regular checkups at Advanced dental care is important to your continued good oral health. If periodontal infections are not treated, the disease can compromise your gums, teeth, bone. Gum disease has also been linked to coronary artery disease, respiratory ailments, strokes, and premature births.
You're at a higher risk for gum disease if you:
- Use tobacco
- Take certain medications
- Endure continuous stress
- Grind or clench your teeth
- Have immune-suppression diseases
- Suffer poor nutrition or poor oral health
You're may already have gum disease if you have:
- Chronic bad breath
- Gums that are red or appear shiny
- Gums that bleed easily
- Loose teeth
- Tender, swollen gums
