Novato, CA Dentist Offers Non-Invasive Treatment to Eliminate Gum Disease

Written by Dr. McConnell on Jul 28, 2014

Most people have the same negative reaction when confronted with gum disease treatment. Until now, the only treatments available for serious periodontal disease were deep cleanings or even surgery. If you’ve been told that the only way to save your teeth is with invasive cut-and-stitch gum surgery, the Novato, CA Dentist has great news for you.

Advances in laser technology now make it possible for us to provide an effective, painless alternative to traditional invasive gum surgery. With the aid of state-of-the-art periodontal lasers we can eliminate the harmful bacteria that cause periodontal disease. Laser treatment is gentle, involves minimal bleeding, an easy recovery and preservation of healthy gum tissue.

Laser Surgery and the Fight Against Gum Disease

Recently laser periodontal treatment has become the new standard for combating serious gum disease. There is no longer any reason to put off treatment for gum disease. If a dentist has told you that you need gum surgery, laser technology is an alternative that you should consider. You may even be surprised to learn that laser periodontal treatment often allows us to save teeth that were previously thought to be hopelessly beyond restoring.

Another important advantage to early laser periodontal treatment is that we are learning the effects that diseased gums can have on overall good health. Serious gum disease that is left untreated destroys your gums, teeth, and bone. But it can also wreak havoc on the rest of your body. Gum disease has been linked to heart disease, stroke, chronic respiratory disease and other serious diseases.  

Prevent Gum Disease with Routine Care

It is vital that gum disease be detected and treated at the earliest stages possible. Some of the more common symptoms of gum disease are bleeding, and sensitive or tender gums. But gum disease can also rapidly progress with few or no symptoms at all.

That is why it is so important for the patient to schedule routine dental exams and cleanings with the Novato, CA Dentist. In this way we can stay one step ahead of gum disease and hopefully prevent it from developing in the first place.
