Gum disease can range from minor ulcers and gum inflammation to severe damage to the bone and soft tissues that sustain the teeth. When left untreated, gum disease leads to a situation that would require permanent removal of teeth. In fact gum disease is considered to be the main reason behind the tooth loss in adults.
In most cases, laser gum treatment procedure can help patients to get cured of gum diseases. The LAPT (laser assisted periodontal therapy) procedure can be performed successfully on diabetic patients, patients with osteoporosis, patients on aspirin therapy, patients on bisphosphanates such as Bonica, Fosamax, Reclas, Actonel and also on patients taking blood thinners such as Plavix or Coumadin.
In LAPT treatment method, a tiny beam of laser light is used to treat mild to severe gum disease. This laser beam smoothly removes the diseased tissue and harmful bacteria from the gum line and pocket. In the meantime, it cleanses both the tooth root and infected gum pocket.
