If your dentist informed you that you have periodontal (gum) disease, you’re not alone. Many adults in the U.S. currently have some form of the disease. Periodontal diseases range from simple gum inflammation to severe gum disease that results in significant damage to the soft tissue and bone that support the teeth. In the worst cases, teeth can be lost.
For patients with more moderate or advanced gum disease and bone loss, more sophisticated surgical treatments are often needed (in addition to scaling and root planing) to clean out deeper deposits of disease-causing calculus (tartar) and to make repairs to regenerate lost bone around the teeth. Recent advances in laser technology and laser gum surgery now permit the treatment of gum disease without cutting or stitching and with minimal discomfort following the procedure.
