Patients with gum disease no longer need to undergo extensive gum surgery to restore their oral health. Dr. Christel and Dr. Micah Westmorland have years of experience performing laser gum therapy, a modern solution for eradicating gum disease and speeding up the gum healing process. We can clear your mouth of an infection and trigger the natural tissue regeneration process with this innovative laser treatment.
Untreated gum disease can wreak havoc on your oral health, systemic health and can even cause tooth loss. If the early stages progress to the more advanced stages, bacteria will destroy the gums and also cause irreversible bone loss. Being aware of the following symptoms can help us treat gum disease early:
We recommend laser gum therapy to many patients with moderate to severe gum disease. Periodontal disease is a progressive condition so leaving it untreated for even a few months can cause long-term damage. Laser gum therapy is especially effective for patients who have very busy schedules and do not want to go through extensive surgery just to restore their oral health.
Dr. Christel and Dr. Micah Westmorland use the Ivoclar Odyssey Navigator Diode to perform laser gum disease treatment at our practice. This innovative laser allows us to perform a very targeted and precise treatment so that healthy tissue is left untouched. Unlike traditional gum surgery, laser therapy does not require cutting away tissues or suturing the gums. Your gums will heal and regenerate naturally after the infection is cleared.
Early detection of gum disease is critical for maintaining a healthy mouth and body.
