Dental laser treatments and procedures are available at Aliso Viejo, CA area practice
Periodontal disease is a condition that can strike anyone, especially patients who are not on top of maintaining their oral health and wellness. This disease also referred to as gum disease, is a dental infection that starts in the soft tissues of the mouth. Without proper diagnosis and treatment, such as laser treatments, patients in the Aliso Viejo, CA area who develop this condition may find that it spreads and worsens with time. The bacteria cause gum tissue to recede, bone loss to occur, and even teeth to become loose or lost without effective treatment. Dr. Claire Cho and her team at the Dental Health and Aesthetics Center encourages patients to visit their dentist as soon as they have the signs of periodontal disease for a diagnosis and treatment using laser procedures.
What are the symptoms of periodontal disease?
Some of the more common signs that periodontal disease has developed include:
- Bleeding gums with brushing and flossing
- Consistent, chronic bad breath
- Loose or lost teeth
- Receding gum tissue
- Red, inflamed gums
- Pocket development between teeth and gums
What occurs with laser treatment?
Laser light is used in many different areas of medicine, including dentistry. With laser energy, Dr. Claire Cho can treat bacteria that have developed in the mouth effectively. These treatments are safe, effective, comfortable, and allow for faster healing and less discomfort. Along with laser therapies, Dr. Claire Cho may prescribe periodontal patients antibiotics to take to also control the infection along with laser treatment.
