End Pain, Regain Your Smile with Non-Surgical Gum Disease Therapy

Whether you live in Aliso Viejo, California, or anywhere else, if you have gum disease, you are probably concerned about what this means for the health of your teeth and gums.

Non Surgical Gum Disease Therapy in Aliso Viejo CA Area

There are multiple ways to treat gum disease, and surgery is sometimes recommended. However, there are effective non-surgical gum disease therapies available. Let’s find out with the team at Dental Health and Aesthetics Center.

What Is Gum Disease?

Periodontitis, also known as gum disease, infects the gums when bacterial growth isn’t treated. In most cases, gum disease is caused by insufficient oral hygiene, and the tartar and plaque have to be removed from the gums and the area beneath the gum line with a deep cleaning.

Some of the symptoms of gum disease include:

  • Swollen gums
  • Inflamed or red gums
  • Bleeding when brushing and flossing
  • Bad breath
  • Pus build-up around the teeth

Why It’s Essential to Treat Gum Disease

Without gum disease treatment, the disease may eventually destroy the gum tissue that holds teeth where they belong. The result can be tooth loss.

Besides the effect on your teeth, gum disease can lead to other illnesses, and there is a link between gum disease and diabetes, stroke, heart attack, lung cancer, and more.

There are three levels of gum disease.

  • Gingivitis: Gingivitis by itself isn’t gum disease, but it precedes more advanced stages of gum disease
  • Periodontitis: Periodontitis occurs when inflammation and infection spread to the bones supporting your teeth. Eventually, teeth will become loose
  • Advanced Periodontitis: At this point, the pockets around the teeth begin to fill with pus, and bone loss occurs

Laser Gum Disease Treatment

At Dr. Cho’s office, the trained team uses CO2 laser therapy to treat gum disease. Laser therapy can prevent gum disease from progressing to advanced stages if caught early enough.

Another option for non-surgical gum disease treatment is the Perio Protect system. A special prescription-strength gel is placed into trays that patients use at home. The gel treats gum disease by killing the bacteria.
