FAQ

What is Periodontal Disease (also known as Gum Disease)?

Periodontal disease, better known as gum disease, is the degradation of gum tissue and infection caused by harmful bacteria. Gum disease is the result of bacteria buildup between the teeth and gums. This harmful bacteria is found in plaque.

How do you get Periodontal Disease?

The main cause of Gum disease is the constant accumulation of plaque and bacteria around the teeth. If the bacteria and plaque are not removed with brushing, flossing and professional dental cleanings, they produce toxins which cause bleeding and swelling of the gums; the gums begin to detach from the tooth creating a pocket. If the bacteria is left in the pocket, this can destroy the bone and eventually cause pain, mobility and tooth loss.

Is there a non-surgical way to treat Gum disease?

Yes, Laser Assisted Periodontal Therapy (LAPT) is an advanced, non-surgical method for treating Gum disease. LAPT is very different from traditional methods of periodontal gum surgery. There is no cutting, scalpels, stitches or bleeding. Patients can comfortably return to their day and even eat meals afterwards. The laser is a very comfortable and minimally invasive method of reducing the bacteria that causes gum disease.

How long do I need to recover after receiving treatment?

When being treated with the Laser, most patients experience little or no recovery time and minimal discomfort.

Can my gum tissue become strong and healthy again?

Yes, the combination therapy between hygiene visits and Laser treatments, will allow your gum tissues to try and reattach and become healthy and strong, while tightening the pockets and improving inflammation. The goal with LAPT is to stabilize your tissue and prevent any further bone loss, helping you retain your healthy teeth and prevent tooth loss.
