Why Eliminating Gum Disease is Necessary
Gum disease is one of the most common oral diseases that affects nearly 75 percent of American adults to some degree. This is so prevalent due to asymptomatic conditions, a lack of knowledge of the disease and improper oral health. If you ever see blood when brushing or flossing, have sore and swollen gums, or experience recurring bad breath, then you might be affected by the beginning stages of gum disease, called gingivitis. If these conditions are left untreated, the disease will advance to periodontitis, an incurable condition characterized by loose teeth, gum recession, and even tooth loss. At Gentle Dentistry, we offer minimally invasive and highly effective laser gum disease treatment using the revolutionary Solea® CO2 dental laser.
