One of the most significant risks of poor dental hygiene is periodontal disease, a severe gum infection that can cause extensive damage to your gums and teeth. Left untreated, this disease will attack the bone structure of your teeth, causing them to weaken and fall out. At the office of Mark H. Wright, D.D.S., Colorado Springs, Colorado, we offer laser-assisted periodontal therapy as a means of treating periodontal disease and helping to restore your oral health. Coupled with traditional periodontal treatments, i.e., scaling, root planing, and flap surgery, laser dentistry has proven to be highly effective in restoring gum health and preserving teeth.
Key Benefits of Laser Therapy
The following are some of the benefits you stand to gain from laser-assisted periodontal therapy:
- Precision – Dental lasers are highly precise in targeting infected tissue to cleanse the harmful bacteria damaging your gums and teeth. Dr. Mark Wright has ample experience with laser therapy and will use this tool to maximize your treatment.
- Reduced Risk of Infection – Laser therapy sterilizes your gums while they’re being treated to reduce your risk of infection from flap surgery. The laser specifically targets decayed tissue, leaving healthy tissue untouched to keep swelling and bleeding to a minimum.
- Quicker Healing – In addition to sterilizing gum tissue, lasers seal the wounds left behind so they heal quicker. This reduces your need for stitches, often a must after flap surgery. Laser therapy also promotes tissue growth to accelerate your healing.
- Customizable Care – Dr. Wright has greater control over your treatment with laser therapy. We can tailor the use of the dental laser to suit your individual needs, to obtain optimal results in treating your gum disease.
