Fear and anxiety can be a barrier to seeking periodontal treatment using traditional methods. Laser periodontal treatment is a more pleasant office experience than traditional periodontal treatment.
Periodontal diseases are infections of the gums that gradually destroy the support of your natural teeth. “Perio” means around and “dontal” means tooth. Dental plaque is the primary cause of gum disease in genetically susceptible individuals. As periodontal diseases progress, the supporting gum tissue and bone that holds teeth in place deteriorate. If left untreated, this leads to tooth loss.
Dental implants are changing the way people live. They are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth which look, feel and function like natural teeth. Dental implants also help preserve facial structure, preventing bone deterioration that occurs when teeth are missing. Learn more about dental implants.
