This holiday season, don’t forget to treat yourself to the gift of healthy gums. Dr. Claire Cho specializes in the LANAP® laser treatment procedure in Aliso Viejo, CA for patients looking to maximize their oral health and prevent a number of avoidable problems with their teeth and gums. Even if you regularly brush your teeth and floss, it's still possible your gums aren't getting the attention they need and deserve.

The Dangers of Untreated Gum Disease

The main cause of gum disease is a buildup of plaque, which can also result in the gums swelling up. Should inflamed gums go untreated long enough, they can lead to a host of problems throughout the body, including:

● Stroke
● Diabetes
● Arthritis
● Heart disease and heart attacks

The main culprit behind these health issues is the fact that gum disease can spread throughout your bloodstream and to other areas of your body. For this very reason, it is crucial to your overall health that you receive regular checkups for your teeth and gums to ensure everything is in good order.

The LANAP® Treatment

While the LANAP® laser treatment isn’t the first method used to address the buildup of plaque and bacteria that lead to diseased gums, it is a revolutionary procedure. What makes it so unique is the fact that it’s minimally invasive and practically pain-free. You’ll also experience a faster healing time, and there’s minimal to no recession of the gums.

Because some patients grow anxious at the idea of going to the dentist, we like to reassure them by informing them that we perform our laser treatments with the most cutting-edge and trusted dental equipment and techniques. We’d be more than happy to sit down with you and answer any questions and address any concerns you might have to put you at ease.
