Gum disease is one of the most common health problems in the entire world, and it’s even the leading cause of adult tooth loss here in the U.S. For cases of moderate to advanced gum disease, many dentists use tools like scalpels and dental picks to correct the problem, which as you can imagine, often lead to a very uncomfortable patient experience.
At Tindal Prosthodontics, however, we’re able to deliver effective treatment that is also completely comfortable using a soft tissue laser. This instrument generates an extremely concentrated beam of light, and with it, our team can easily eliminate bacteria hidden below the gum line and even remove infected tissue while reducing post treatment swelling and bleeding. The laser itself creates very little heat, sound, or vibration, making it a gentle solution that’s proven to deliver consistently results.
