Gum Disease Treatment

Gum disease is extremely common, with roughly half of all adult Americans having some form of the disease. The good news is that if caught in the early stages, gum disease can be easily treated without threatening your teeth.

Symptoms of Gum Disease

The first question we get from most of our patients is ‘How can I tell if I have gum disease?’ Here are the five most common symptoms associated with this disease:

  • Constant bad breath or unplease tastes in your mouth
  • Tooth sensitivity and pain while chewing
  • Gum recession and exposed tooth roots
  • Redness and irritation of gums
  • Bleeding when you brush

If you have any or all of these symptoms, it is extremely important that you tell your dentist immediately.

Here at Essentially Pure Dentistry, we know how important it is to catch gum disease early before it becomes a serious issue. When we discover the signs of potential gum disease, we start treatment immediately to minimize any potential risks. Our expert technicians use laser gum therapy to clean up toxins in the infected areas of the gums, which in turn stimulates the body’s immune system to heal itself and promote gum regrowth. Laser gum therapy is extremely safe, painless, and efficient. Depending on the severity of the gum disease, most patients experience a full recovery within just a few treatments.

Laser gum therapy has a wide variety of benefits including:

  • No general anesthetic is needed, as is sometimes required for other forms of dental surgery.
  • Lasers can target the diseased areas precisely and accurately.
  • Bleeding, pain and swelling are limited because periodontal laser therapy is less invasive than regular surgery.
  • Recovery and healing times are shorter.
