Video About Gum Disease Laser Treatment

What is Gum Disease?

Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is a chronic inflammatory condition that affects the gums and the supporting structures of the teeth. It’s caused by the buildup of plaque, a sticky film of bacteria that forms on the teeth. If left untreated, gum disease can progress from gingivitis (inflammation of the gums) to periodontitis, leading to tooth loss and other serious health complications.

What is Laser Dentistry?

Laser dentistry is a modern dental technology that utilizes focused beams of light to perform various procedures with precision and minimal invasiveness. At Nash Family Dentistry in Vicksburg, MS, Dr. Nash and his team use the BIOLASE WaterLase iPlus®, a state-of-the-art dental laser system that combines water, air, and laser energy to perform precise and gentle treatments.

Signs and Symptoms of Gum Disease

Recognizing the signs and symptoms of gum disease is crucial for seeking timely treatment. Here are some common indicators to watch out for:

  • Red, swollen, or tender gums
  • Bleeding gums, especially when brushing or flossing
  • Receding gums
  • Persistent bad breath or a bad taste in the mouth
  • Loose teeth or tooth sensitivity
  • Gum abscesses or pus between the teeth and gums

If you experience any of these symptoms, it’s essential to schedule an appointment with Dr. Nash in Vicksburg, MS, for a comprehensive evaluation and appropriate treatment.

How Can Laser Dentistry Treat Gum Disease?

Laser dentistry has proven to be an effective and minimally invasive treatment option for gum disease. Here’s how the BIOLASE WaterLase iPlus® can help:

Bacterial Elimination: The laser energy efficiently eliminates harmful bacteria and diseased tissue from the gum pockets, promoting healing and reducing the risk of infection.

Precise Removal of Inflamed Tissue: The laser precisely removes inflamed or diseased gum tissue, allowing for better access to the root surfaces for thorough cleaning and scaling.

Minimal Discomfort and Bleeding: Unlike traditional methods, laser dentistry causes minimal discomfort and bleeding, making the procedure more comfortable for patients.

Faster Healing: The laser’s energy stimulates the body’s natural healing process, leading to faster recovery times and reduced post-operative discomfort.

No Sutures or Scalpels: Laser dentistry eliminates the need for sutures or scalpels, reducing the risk of further trauma to the gum tissue.

By utilizing the BIOLASE WaterLase iPlus® at Nash Family Dentistry in Vicksburg, MS, Dr. Nash can effectively treat gum disease with precision, comfort, and minimized downtime for his patients.
