Laser ablation on the gum line in Gilbert area practice
A serious condition that needs to be addressed if is developed is the periodontal disease. Also commonly known as gum disease, periodontal disease is not curable. Once it develops, it can only be controlled and maintained. This is why dentists in the Gilbert area encourage patients to take good care of their smiles with regular brushing and flossing. This can reduce the risk of developing periodontal disease and putting one’s oral health at risk for the remainder of their life. It can also reduce the chance of the oral-systemic connection resulting in the development of medical conditions. Science has shown that bacteria in the mouth from periodontal disease can travel through the bloodstream to other parts of the body, increasing the risk of developing diabetes, strokes, or heart disease. Avoiding periodontal disease altogether is desirable, but if it does become an issue, it should be diagnosed and addressed as soon as possible.
Many dentists in the area who are dealing with periodontal disease may suggest to patients the benefits of scaling and root planing. However, this can be rather invasive for severe cases of periodontal disease. Instead, Dr. Edward Fritz of New Health Dental offers laser ablation. Laser ablation is a procedure that can accomplish the same goal without the invasiveness of traditional treatment. Lasers allow faster healing with less bleeding, and more precise treatment than conventional scaling and root planing. It is highly desired by patients over traditional periodontal disease treatment and is available at New Health Dental.
