Laser Gum Treatment Arlington VA
Periodontal disease is a destructive infection that can result in tooth loss, gum recession, and bone deterioration. People in their 30s and 40s are the most prone to this disease. Dr. Layth Ghanim and Dr. Alan Jureidini utilize laser periodontal treatment to control the infection and the level of treatment. Lasers can be found in a variety of industries nowadays, and dentistry is no exception. Dental lasers allow for increased precision and comfort so that your smile can heal faster. You may benefit from receiving laser periodontal treatment Arlington, Virginia.
If you have periodontal disease, Dr. Layth Ghanim can use a soft tissue laser to kill off the harmful bacteria in your mouth, remove infected tissue, and encourage the growth of healthy gum tissue. Laser dentistry has the added benefit of being more comfortable than many traditional treatments for gum disease. Lasers do not require the use of scalpels or suturing, decrease the risk of infection following treatment, and minimize bleeding. Overall, your experience with a laser gum treatment will be more comfortable and more efficient than if you had received a traditional periodontal procedure.
How Laser Gum Treatment Works
A dental laser is used to remove the infected gum tissue from around the tooth’s root. Once the root is exposed, the dentist will begin root scaling. This involves removing the plaque and tartar that has built up around the root and below the gumline via ultrasonic root cleaner – no scraping required. The root is then smoothed out with instruments. This helps remove rough spots that might attract bacteria and cause future infections. The energy from the laser is then used to warm the stem cell that contains blood, thereby creating a seal of tissues to protect the tooth root. Laser periodontal treatment promotes healing, allowing the area between the gum and the root to regenerate.
