Periodontal or gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth, including inflammation and infection of gums, ligaments, and bone. It is a leading cause of tooth loss in Canadian adults, and studies indicate that at least 75% of North Americans over age 35 have some form of periodontal disease. Gingivitis (gums inflammation) and periodontitis (gums and bone disease) are the two main forms of periodontal disease.
Good oral hygiene and regular dental examinations are essential in prevention and early detection of gum disease – which sometimes develops without any warning signs, and can actually remain undetected until it becomes severe.
At Luma Dental, we’re pleased to offer the use of soft tissue laser in our periodontal therapy procedure to provide you with the least traumatic treatment experience, as well as faster healing time.
To ensure that your oral health remains optimal, schedule regular check-ups and periodontal disease screenings at Luma Dental.
