Stop Gum Disease With Laser Gum Treatment
Baer Dental - Where we treat people, not teeth.
Laser Treatment in Aurora, CO
Close to 80% of the adult’s in the U.S. today suffer from some form of gum disease. Since gum disease sufferers usually don’t exhibit pain or other symptoms, many of them have no idea they have it.
Unfortunately, untreated gum disease can progress from gingivitis into a more serious condition called Periodontitis without any change in how your mouth feels.
Throughout history, periodontitis has been the main reason why adults lost their teeth. And, even in today’s modern age of electric tooth brushes, fluoride, floss, and high-powered mouthwash, it is STILL the number one reason adults lose their teeth.
When laser gum treatments are able to tackle gum disease in its initial stages it often averts patients from having to go through more extensive and expensive treatments such as scaling and root planning or even gum surgery.

Laser Gum Treatment Information
What Happens during Laser Gum Treatment?
Laser therapy is a non-invasive method that can be used to painlessly remove diseased gum tissue and at the same time it disinfects and cauterizes the area. The laser only removes the diseased tissue.
Because the laser cauterizes and seal the wounds it and stimulates immediate healing as it works, sutures are not needed after the procedure. It also calms the nerve endings of the affected areas, making any postoperative discomfort minimal. Finally, the disinfected gums will attach to the cleaned teeth more rapidly, aiding in the speed of recovery.
Give your Gums a “Face-Lift”
The same laser used to treat the initial phases of gum disease can also give your smile a makeover. Sometimes patients may be suffering from the opposite of receding gums. They may also have gums that come down too far over their teeth.
To correct this, laser treatments can be used to perform a non-surgical gum lift.
No stitches are required for this procedure either, typically there is no serious recovery time involved, and results can be seen in a matter of days.
Out of the Dark Ages and Into the Light
Even less than a century ago, tooth loss was considered by most to be an inevitable part of the aging process. This is no longer true. Even if you have been informed that scaling and root planing, or even traditional slice and suture surgery are your only option to keep your teeth, you may have a more appealing treatment available to you in laser therapy.
Laser gum treatments are a more convenient and less painful way to treat the early development of gum disease. To help make sure you catch this “tooth killer” make sure you maintain a regular oral health routine and see your dentist at least once a year.
