LASER GUM TREATMENT
Laser periodontal techniques are used to improve the effects of gum disease and prevent the condition from getting worse. Gum disease in various stages affects millions of people across America – even those with exceptional oral hygiene routines. The condition is caused by plaque and bacteria invading the soft tissues surrounding the teeth, and can lead to redness, bleeding gums, tooth decay, and even tooth loss. Gum disease can even increase the risk of overall health problems. Dr. Nellis and our team at Nellis Family Dentistry can use laser technology to remove harmful bacteria from the gums in a quick, virtually painless procedure. This treatment also effectively seals the gums to the teeth for an improved aesthetic result.
