Stoute Dental – Gum Disease Treatment Crofton Maryland
Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss for American adults. Reports indicate that millions of people are unaware that they have gum disease, and about 30% of the population is genetically susceptible to contracting the condition. Other risk factors include smoking, pregnancy, puberty, stress, grinding teeth, poor nutrition, diabetes, and poor oral hygiene. When gum disease sets in, it destroys soft tissue, breaks the strong bond between teeth and supporting gums, and can cause jawbone deterioration, as well as tooth loss.
If your gums bleed when you brush your teeth, or if they appear red, swollen, or are tender to the touch, you may have gingivitis or gum disease. Depending upon the severity of your case, we may recommend a deep cleaning to help reverse the condition. Our office uses a gentle soft-tissue laser to treat the pockets infected by bacteria and periodontal disease. This procedure, combined with ultrasonic instruments, will help remove the disease and restore your gums to optimal health
Soft-tissue laser therapy for deep cleanings presents many advantages. The laser beam seals as it removes damaged tissue, so bleeding is minimal. Because of the reduced trauma, most patients feel better than they would after traditional deep cleanings.
