Gum disease is the most common disease in the United States. Gum disease is a contagious infection that is hard to detect. Also known as periodontitis, gum disease is an infection of the tissues/bone surrounding your teeth. 85% of Americans have some form of gum disease, and almost half of those arent aware of the infection.

What causes gum disease? Dental plaque is a biofilm that forms on the teeth from microorganisms, salivary protein molecules that are sticky due to sugar components, and epithelial cells from the oral mucosa. Then plaque is mineralized with calcium and phosphate molecules that results in deposits called calculus. This calculus causes gum inflammation and then subsequently bone loss.

Several periodontal therapies are available for treatment of gum disease. However, the most advanced and cutting-edge technique basically supplements the traditional “deep cleaning” protocol with some added benefits of incorporating Erbium laser energy & neodymium laser energy at different stages of the deep cleaning process. This extra intervention with the erbium and neodymium laser instruments results in better disinfection and enhanced tissue response which allow for excellent results and unique benefits.
