Laser Bacterial Decontamination Helps Control Gum Disease

Though most of us associate oral health with teeth, it is the gums, which form the most important part of the mouth. Unhealthy gums can lead to problems such as infection called gum disease.

There are many ways to treat gum disease. However, the one that is gaining popularity in the recent years is the laser treatment. In laser bacterial decontamination, laser is used to target the selected infected area and kill the surrounding bacteria so that they do not resurface again. It is very effective and convenient and you can return to your daily chores on the same day of your treatment. This procedure is most effective after conventional cleaning during which plaque is removed.

Most of these procedures are so simple that you would not even require anesthesia. Timely treatment and regular checkups will help you prevent many oral diseases. Contact us today to schedule your periodontal evaluation. (310) 481-0111
