About Periodontal Therapy:
Healthy Gums are the foundation of a healthy dentition. The bony support of teeth and implants dictates how long they will remain in your mouth. During your comprehensive evaluation, your Periodontal structures will be evaluated. Measurements will be made of your pocket depths of your gums around each tooth, and the bone levels of each tooth will be examined radiographically.
Periodontal therapy is vital to healthy teeth and gums. Gum Disease will cause loosening of teeth if left untreated.
Laser treatment of your gums is the alternative to periodontal surgery. The elimination of mineral deposits by scaling, and reducing deep pocketing and the bacteria associated with periodontal destruction is accomplished with laser pocket reduction and is important in establishing healthy tissues.
