Important Information about Laser Treatment
Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, can be a serious ailment. Left untreated, it can lead to tooth loss. Not only that, but gum disease has been associated with other much more serious health problems. If you suffer from periodontal disease, it’s extremely important to have it treated right away. In the past, extreme cases of gum disease were treated with oral surgery, which involved opening the gums and removing the infection. Fortunately, modern dental technology has changed all that. Now, Dr. Robertson is able to use laser treatment on his patients with periodontal disease.
The procedure involves Dr. Robertson using a special laser that penetrates the gum tissue and eliminates the infection. Thanks to this revolutionary laser treatment, periodontal patients can avoid surgery altogether and heal much faster than ever before.
“An Ounce of Prevention…”
Of course the very best way to fight periodontal disease is to never develop it in the first place. That’s where preventive measures play a role. It’s important to take good care of your teeth and gums, which means brushing at least twice and day and flossing at least once a day. And don’t forget to schedule regular appointments at Dr. Robertson’s office for professional cleanings. Most patients can maintain good oral health by following good at-home practices and having their teeth cleaned twice a year. But if you or members of your family have a history of periodontal disease, you might need to come in more often. Ask Dr. Robertson which our periodontal maintenance program is right for you. Under this plan, patients typically have their teeth cleaned every three months or so. If you can avoid periodontal disease altogether, it’s well worth the effort!
