What is Periodontitis?
Periodontitis (gum disease) is a progressive disease that when left untreated can lead to loss of teeth. It begins with a bacterial infection that causes tooth decay, inflammation, and then other serious problems evolve within the mouth. Because it is painless in its early stages, gum disease can develop unnoticed for some time. Once gingivitis advances to periodontitis, treatment is imperative to stop the progression towards tooth loss.
Signs and symptoms of gum disease include:
- Swollen, inflamed and bleeding gums
- Bad breath
- Pain chewing and biting
- Loose teeth
Non-surgical Laser Treatments
Laser treatment is a prominent non-surgical method of providing gum disease therapy. Patients benefit from the non-intrusive procedure for many reasons that include:
- Minimal pain, reducing discomfort during and following the procedure
- Provides patients with a more acceptable alternative to a dental drill, reducing anxiety
- Minimizes bleeding and swelling of soft tissue.
Early Detection and Prevention of Gum Disease
Dr. Aryani and her team at Orchid Dental are dedicated to patient education and preventive measures to best care for their gums and teeth at home. Preventative care is the first line of defense in the fight against gum disease and tooth decay. Patients can avoid more costly, invasive treatments by maintaining healthy dental habits, such as brushing their teeth twice daily, flossing once a day, and attending regular checkups with your dentist. When patients do lose teeth, Orchid Dental provides solutions such as dentures and dental implants to fill the unwanted gaps. The prosthetic solutions support dental function and aesthetics for improved long-term oral health.
