Laser Periodontal Therapy in Newbury, Ohio

Your gum health is one of our main concerns.

Dr. Jason Majors has always been extremely interested in how technology can aid in improving dental care. That’s why we use soft-tissue lasers for periodontal therapy at our Newbury, Ohio dental office. With the help of dental lasers, we can provide improved gum disease treatment for better oral health. Laser periodontal therapy is precise, effective, and improves healing after the procedure is over.

Why do we take gum disease so seriously at our general family dentistry practice? Because gum disease is the main cause of tooth loss. It can intensify diabetes, and it may contribute to the development of other health problems, such as heart disease. Because we want to protect your smile from damage and keep you healthy, we offer laser periodontal therapy for the treatment of gum disease.

Gum disease starts out with a mild form called gingivitis. If you have very mild gum disease when you come in for your dental exam, we might simply recommend that you be more vigorous in your hygiene routine at home. Oftentimes, gum disease is allowed to flourish when you don’t floss daily. However, we may end up recommending laser periodontal therapy to treat your gum disease if it’s more advanced. Gum disease treatment traditionally involves the processes of scaling and root planing. When lasers are used for your periodontal therapy, they provide extra disinfectant action.

Gum disease is an inflammation of the gums caused by bacteria along and below the gum line. Scaling and root planing involve cleaning away bacteria and disinfecting the gums, then modifying the tooth roots below the gums to make the area less hospitable to bacteria. Laser periodontal therapy can also involve the removal of any gum tissue that’s been too damaged by gum disease.

Laser periodontal therapy offers greater precision, and the heat from the laser provides extra benefits. Lasers can greatly reduce bleeding during procedures, or eliminate it all together. Also, healing is encouraged by the use of the soft-tissue laser. And the laser offers greater comfort during periodontal therapy than more traditional dental tools.
