Gum disease (Gingivitis) is the disease which causes infection and inflammation of the gums. It is one of the most common dental problem worldwide. Dental plaque is the common cause of this disease which release toxins and irritate and inflame the gums. Inflammation destroys the gums and cause them to separate from the teeth. Some researchers suggests that the bacteria responsible for periodontitis can enter your blood stream through gum tissues possibly affecting your heart, lungs and other parts of the body.
Symptoms of gum infection(Gingivitis) are mild toothache, gum swelling, pain, gums may be red, painful to touch and looks longer than normal and gums may bleed on brushing. Mild gum disease can be corrected by improving oral hygiene by brushing, flossing and having plaques and tartar removed. Laser play a great role in controlling gum diseases.
Benefits of laser gum treatment are laser stimulates stem cells in the tissue to form new connective tissues, bone and collagen and helps body to regenerate lost ligaments and bone around the teeth. Laser limits bleeding , kills bacteria from the gums and minimise the risk of bacterial infection.
Laser removes diseased tissues and bacteria from the pockets along the base of the teeth and helps gums to recover from infection and halt the disease process.
