Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, can develop when bacteria builds below the gum line. Three out of four Americans have some level of periodontal disease, but only 3 out of 100 will receive treatment before it’s too late!
Gum Disease Prevention
Gum disease treatment can be critical in early stages because it can often lead to more serious issues in your mouth as well as other parts of your body. Gum disease is a sneaky condition that is often painless until it progresses into the advanced stages of periodontitis, which is why regular dental checkups are important to maintain good oral health. Periodontitis is the leading reason for adult tooth loss. It also causes jawbone deterioration, gum recession, and a prematurely aged appearance.
There are two main phases of gum disease:
- Gingivitis—the mildest form.
- Periodontitis—the destructive form.
Early treatment of gingivitis is more comfortable and affordable than the surgical treatment of periodontitis.
Laser Periodontal Treatment
The latest gum disease therapy methods are surprisingly pain-free. At Aspen Ridge Dental, we use laser therapy as gum disease treatment. The laser evaporates the diseased tissue and interrupts the bacterial destruction of the tissues and bones.
After a few easy laser gum disease treatment sessions, the gum pocket will heal and you will regain normal function. This new laser therapy allows for faster recovery with less swelling and bleeding.
No More Hygiene Program
We also use the innovative No More Hygiene program that uses the most clinically advanced protocol for effectively diagnosing and treatment periodontal disease. By implementing the science between the oral-systemic connection, and addressing your specific concerns, we can provide gum disease treatment that is both effective and conservative.
OralDNA Periodontal Treatment
OralDNA involves swabbing the oral mucosa to gather information about your type of periodontal disease. This painless test allows us to determine which strains of bacteria live in your mouth. OralDNA results in the most accurate gum disease treatment that is tailored to your unique oral health needs.
