Gum disease increases your risk of systemic health problems, making it more difficult for your immune system to do its job. Gingivitis (gum disease) is often painless at first, making it difficult to diagnose without regular dental checkups. Inflammation of the gums can be a potentially serious condition, which is why it’s vital to get regular dental exams from Lorton Town Dental.
If you have been diagnosed with or are concerned you might have gingivitis, Dr. Khattab provides a range of treatments to help you reverse or stop gum disease’s progression. If you are in the early stages of gingivitis, most treatment options are non-surgical procedures.
Laser Gum Disease Treatment
At Lorton Town Dental we offer laser treatment as an option for patients suffering from gum disease. During laser gum disease treatment, our Lorton dentists will use a laser to excise your diseased gum tissue. Using a laser for gum treatment allows for a greater degree of precision, making general anesthesia unnecessary, and often results in shorter recovery times.
Non-invasive laser gum therapy allows for a powerful beam of light to kill bacteria and eliminate diseased, infected tissue. In our gum disease treatment, we remove the tartar from your teeth using the ultrasonic and small hand instruments, and then a laser is used to selectively remove the diseased tissue. It kills all the germs that cause gum infection while promoting a faster recovery.
Laser therapy is not only much more comfortable and faster than traditional surgery, our patients at Lorton Town Dental can start using their precious smile again much more quickly with healthier, cleaner teeth. No cutting and no stitching mean much less discomfort.
