Gingivitis and Periodontitis are the most prevalent chronic diseases in adults. They are not only responsible for tooth loss, but a lot of studies categorically confirm that periodontal diseases are also responsible for Heart Disease, Diabetes, complications during pregnancy and low birth baby birth weight. The most recent published study states that the bacteria causing Gum Disease were also found in the brain of people with Alzheimer’s Disease. This proves one more time that Oral-Systemic Connection is very real.
At Calabasas Dental Spa we offer a variety of dental hygiene services from preventative teeth cleaning to a non-surgical treatment like periodontal scaling and root planning (a deeper cleaning) to treat infection of the gums and bones. We use ultrasound technology that is very gentle to your teeth and gums and makes your visits very comfortable. Using nonsurgical and pain-free state-of-the-art laser treatment protocols, we gently remove bacterial buildup between the teeth and under the gums. Our laser gum treatment is used to eliminate bleeding gums by gently removing infected tissue. It also stimulates growth of healthy gum tissue and helps eliminate deep pockets.
Proper teeth cleaning and laser gum treatments are essential for maintaining a healthy mouth. Teeth cleaning helps remove plaque and tartar buildup, which both can lead to cavities, gingivitis, and other oral health problems. Laser gum treatments allow for the removal of bacteria deep below the surface of the gums without surgery or discomfort. This is especially beneficial for those with periodontal disease who need more advanced treatment than brushing and flossing alone can provide.
Regular cleanings help protect against tooth decay while supporting overall dental health. Laser gum treatments can also reduce inflammation in areas where periodontal disease has caused damage to the bone structure surrounding your teeth, helping keep them secure in their sockets.
Fortunately, Gum Disease is largely preventable with daily brushing, flossing, and regular professional dental visits. Your dentist and your hygienist are your most important allies in the early detection and treatment of Gum Disease. Regular dental visits are essential for your overall health and well-being.
Teeth cleaning helps remove plaque and tartar buildup from the surface of your teeth, while laser gum treatments can target bacteria deep below the surface of the gums.
Generally, it’s recommended to visit a dentist for a professional cleaning every 3 to 4 months. Depending on your oral health needs, you may need to come in more or less frequently.
Laser gum treatments are considered safe and minimally invasive. As with any medical treatment, it is important to speak with your dentist about any risks or potential side effects. Laser gum treatments are not suitable for everyone, so it is important to consult your dentist to determine the best treatment plan for you.
