If you have periodontal (gum) disease, laser treatment is an effective, less costly, and more comfortable way to treat this disease. When you have gum disease, flesh- and bone-eating bacteria are destroying your mouth. Lasers not only destroy the bacteria, but stimulate healing and the growth of new healthy tissue.
When left untreated, gum disease can lead to tooth loss, bone loss, and receding gums as well as creating other significant health problems. Generally, people with gum disease have swollen, bleeding gums and very bad breath. It is important to note that gum disease can be transmitted to your spouse and to your children.
