If you have been told that you have periodontal disease, you likely have some questions about what to expect and what your treatment options are. Our dentists and team perform laser gum treatment in Woodbridge, Virginia, to help you treat your condition and improve your oral health.
You may still be wondering, however, what is periodontal disease? Periodontal disease, more commonly referred to as gum disease, is a degenerative condition caused by bacteria found in plaque. That bacteria can cause infection and inflammation in the gums and tissue, leaving you with periodontal disease. This condition can lead to tooth loss, bone loss, receding gums and more.
The goal of a laser gum treatment is to stop the development of periodontal disease by killing the bacteria, removing infected tissue and promoting the growth of new, healthy tissue. Your laser treatment with Dr. Ibrahim El-Garawany and associates at Adam Dental Care will be comfortable, fast and efficient. The use of dental lasers minimizes the need for stitches and decreases bleeding, leaving you with a healthier smile.
