What is periodontitis?

Just as teeth are attacked by bacterial buildup, so are the mouth’s gums and soft tissues. When bad bacteria form a cavity in a tooth, there is a high likelihood that it is also affecting the gums and soft tissues of the mouth. When these bacteria start to affect the gums, it will cause a condition known as gingivitis, which is early-stage gum disease. Gingivitis doesn’t typically manifest with pain or discomfort, so it can be very hard to know when you are affected by it. Symptoms that are known to accompany gingivitis are:

  • Swollen gums
  • Red and irritated gums
  • Gums that bleed easily
  • Persistent bad breath

What happens when gingivitis is not resolved?

If gingivitis is left unchecked, it can soon turn into periodontitis, which is late-stage gum disease. Periodontitis is not a curable condition, whereas gingivitis is. Without treatment, periodontitis can result in tooth, bone, and soft tissue loss. It is linked with serious medical conditions like stroke, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes.

Periodontitis is difficult to treat because of how it affects your gums. When bacteria start to build up beneath the gum line between the tooth and gums, it presents a hard-to-reach target. If left without treatment, the bacteria will continue to inflame and affect the tissues in your mouth. Periodontal treatment aims to remove the harmful bacteria that build up below the gum line.

Laser periodontal therapy in Trophy Club, TX

David Crumpton, DDS, was one of the first adopters of laser technology in the area. Our team of highly skilled doctors and hygienists utilize all the latest proven dental treatment technologies to give you, our patients, the most value we can. By adopting the Millennium ND: YAG periodontal laser, we save you time and money on your procedure while giving you a result that simply can’t be beaten.

How does laser periodontal treatment work?

We can perform gum surgery in Grapevine, TX, using the Millennium ND: YAG with a series of two treatments. The first part of this process involves killing the infection with the laser. Once your gums have been cleared of infection, we will begin the second step of treatment, which starts with removing the bacterial buildup (tartar) in the pockets of your gums. We use special scaling tools to remove the tartar, then return to the laser. The second run with the laser allows us to give a clean finish to the soft tissues in the pockets, significantly aiding the healing process.

What are the benefits of laser gum surgery?

When comparing laser gum surgery to traditional gum surgery, there are a huge number of benefits. Lasers give us precise control over every part of the procedure, from treatment application to recovery. It takes substantially less time to finish the procedure and for you to recover when using the laser treatment. We don’t have to suture your gums following the procedure, and you should not feel discomfort following its completion. In total, your treatment and your recovery time will total roughly 24 hours.
