Periodontal Treatment From Your Dentists in Everett
Periodontal disease, also commonly referred to as gum disease, is a condition that affects the gums and other tissues surrounding the teeth. Many experts agree that periodontal disease is often caused by poor oral hygiene habits, as well as tobacco use and certain medications. In addition, some people may be genetically predisposed to periodontal disease due to an imbalance in their body's inflammatory response.
Regardless of its source, periodontal disease can pose serious risks if left untreated. Over time, it can lead to tooth decay, bone loss, and even tooth loss.
Here are some of the tell-tale symptoms associated with this disease:
- Red, swollen, or tender gums
- Gum recession
- Bleeding gums
- Loose teeth
- Painful chewing
- Sensitive teeth
- Bad breath
Fortunately, periodontal disease is treatable through a number of methods, including scaling and root planing, which involves removing tartar buildup from the teeth and gums. Periodontal surgery and laser therapy treatment are also options for treating this disease.
A highly effective laser is known as LANAP, which uses advanced laser technology to remove diseased gum tissue and stimulate healthy growth in areas where there is tooth loss or infection. This minimally invasive technology also helps patients recover from chronic infections linked to periodontal disease.
