What Do You Know About Gum Disease?

Posted .

Waterlase MachineGum disease, or Gingivitis, originates in the gums, where infections form from harmful bacteria that are ever present in the mouth. Early warning signs include chronic bad breath, tender or painful swollen gums and minor bleeding after brushing or flossing. In many cases, however, gingivitis can go unnoticed. The infections can eventually cause the gums to separate from the teeth, creating even greater opportunities for infection and decay.

What’s the solution?  Laser gum treatment.  The only FDA approved laser, the Waterlase laser has been a miracle in gum treatment. Use of the laser in the pocket will eliminate much of the diseased tissue and allow better shrinkage of the swollen gums and faster healing. It is a quick and painless solution. We have never seen anything work so well!

No need for needles, we have found a newly developed liquid gel, called Oraqix. It is squirted between the gums and teeth. It numbs the gums and teeth instantly! The laser sprays out a computer-controlled spray of air and water as it activates the water droplets to comfortably remove hard deposits (calculus) and sterilize infected pockets. This is very important because bacterial contamination is the main reason gum disease starts up again.
