Periodontal disease isn’t something that goes away on its own - and it can have serious consequences, including tooth and gum loss. Periodontal disease has also been linked to systemic problems such as heart disease, stroke and diabetes complications.
Unfortunately, many people put off treatment for periodontal disease because they’ve heard it requires painful gum surgery. W e’re glad to announce that we can offer several effective, non-surgical treatments to control gum disease.
Our treatment methods include scaling, root planing, medication and laser therapy. Laser therapy in particular is a revolutionary treatment, since it gently removes harmful bacteria from the gum pocket without cutting or stitching. That means less bleeding, less discomfort during and after surgery, a faster recovery and better, longer-lasting results.
So don’t delay getting help for periodontal disease because you’re fearful of the pain of periodontal surgery. There are newer, better ways to treat it! Call our Louisville dental office today to find out how we can help.
