Halitosis Treatment

Inflamed gums make eating and teeth cleaning quite inconvenient for you. If you are suffering sore gums and even bleeding ones, you may need laser dentistry for effective treatment.

Do you need a periodontal treatment?

Your irritated gums can be a sign of periodontal or gum disease. Such conditions are common if you are in your later years. However, they can also manifest among younger patients, especially due to bad oral hygiene practices.

Your dentist can advise you on how to address gum or tooth recession. These solutions may include considering a modern treatment procedure such as laser dentistry. 

Gum disease symptoms

Do you have these symptoms? You might need urgent periodontal treatment. 

  • Swollen gums
  • Receding gums
  • Tender gums
  • Bright red or purplish gums
  • Bleeding gums
  • Gum abscess
  • Bad breath

Laser dentistry to treat gum disease

Periodontal laser therapy aims to treat your swollen or receding gum line effectively. Your inflamed gum tissue harbours bacteria and leaving it untreated spreads the bacteria to nearby areas. This makes it necessary to remove the infected tissue. 

Using laser treatment ensures accuracy in targeting the inflamed tissue surrounding your tooth root. After this, your tooth root will be exposed so your dentist will scrape off plaque buildup on that portion. 

Needless to say, laser treatment is just one of the processes of treating periodontal disease. You can expect that other procedures come alongside this treatment to ensure the complete healing of your gums. 

Advantages of using laser therapy

Reduced risks and discomfort

You would no longer observe any of the following after laser dentistry: 

  • Tooth sensitivity and discomfort
  • Infections caused by bacteria
  • Risk of infections after periodontal treatment

Reduced anxiety

There’s no need for an anesthetics since the treatment already reduces your anxiety about possible cuts and sutures. 

You’ll find relief knowing that no sharp dental tools are involved in your treatment. Hence, no more slicing and stitching which also means quicker recovery.

Don’t wait too long to free yourself from dental pain. Contact your Toronto dentist today for your next visit.
