Gum Disease Laser Therapy Mesa AZ
Periodontal disease or gum disease is a result of bacteria that enters below the gum line and erodes the connection between the gum and the tooth. Periodontal disease is so common that 3 out of 4 people living in the United States suffer from some form of it, but only 3% will actually receive treatment before permanent damage ensues. The dentists at Sandstrom Dental Group in Mesa, Arizona will ensure that periodontal disease is treated as soon as possible using gum disease laser therapy.
What is Gum Disease?
Gum disease is dangerous because it is often accompanied by very little discomfort, which means the disease can go on fairly undetected for a long period of time. Eventually if left untreated, the situation will grow so serious that the pain from the gum and bone destruction will rise to an alarming rate, causing the person extreme discomfort as they wait to visit a dentist office. Even though there are not visible signs associated with gum disease, regular treatment without laser therapy can cause pain and even result in loss of teeth.
How our Dentists in Mesa Arizona Treat Gum Disease
Instead of using the traditional, more painful method to treat gum disease, the dentists at Dr. Sandstrom Dental Group in Mesa use a new method that takes advantage of laser therapy. The laser runs through the gums, eliminating infected tissues in the area surrounding the tooth and the gum pocket. The laser treatment is beneficial because it removes any disease in the gum area without experiencing extreme pain and a long recovery period.
