Non-Surgical Gum Therapy
It is possible that in spite of your best efforts, you may require more extensive gum therapy. Like many other ailments, gum disease can be quite painless due to its slow progression.
After a thorough periodontal screening, other therapies aimed at eliminating or reducing the amounts of bacterial and plaque accumulation below the gum line may be recommended. This involves curettage and root planing and/or treatment with site specific administration of medications to the affected gums. Curettage is the debridement of the soft tissue lining around the tooth. In disease, this tissue is chronically irritated by bacteria deep below the visible gum line and needs to be removed so that proper healing can occur. Root planing is the removal and smoothing of micro amounts of root surface so that a clean and uninfected surface is presented to the healing lining of soft tissue. These two procedures are generally done simultaneously, may require local anesthesia and are skillfully done by our dentists and hygiene team.
Laser Gum Therapy
At Eatonville Dental, we offer our patients laser gum therapy, which is used to speed up the healing of diseased gums. Recent studies suggest that the diode laser can play an important part in knocking down the bacteria that linger after conventional periodontal therapy is complete. The diode laser has been shown to improve overall results when used in conjunction with conventional curettage and root planing. While the diode laser does not replace conventional approaches to periodontal therapy, its ability to reduce persistent, invisible bacteria can contribute to the natural healing and control of periodontitis. Ask us about the many uses of the diode laser at your next visit!
