If your smile is affected by periodontal disease, our caring dentist may recommend gum treatment. Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is a serious condition caused by bacteria in plaque. When plaque and tartar (hardened plaque) accumulate on the teeth, the bacteria irritate the gum tissue, resulting in inflammation and infection. If periodontal disease progresses untreated, it can lead to tooth loss, receding gums, and bone loss. Dr. Brandon R. Magill provides laser gum treatment in Manlius, New York to restore your oral health and prevent these serious effects.
We use a dental laser to provide gum treatment that is exceptionally comfortable, efficient, and effective. Using a dental laser, we can remove bacteria, plaque, tartar, and diseased tissue. Laser dentistry results in minimal bleeding both during and after the treatment, and many patients find laser gum treatment to be much more comfortable than traditional methods. Gum treatment can also be completed in a shorter period of time by using the dental laser. If your gums are red, swollen, or tender, or if they bleed easily, you may suffer from gum disease. We encourage you to contact our dental office today to learn more about gum treatment and laser dentistry. We are dedicated to helping you improve your oral health!
