New Laser Gum Care at Lynn Dental Care for Dallas, TX, Dental Patients
Hearing the words “gum disease” can cause frustration or embarrassment for many dental patients. However, gum disease is actually quite common. It is caused when plaque forms below the gum line causing irritation and pockets to form between teeth and gums. Common symptoms of gum disease include gums that are sore, swollen, or red; gums that bleed after brushing or flossing; teeth the appear to be longer than before because gums have pulled away; mouth sores; and bad breath.If you think you could have gum disease, call Dr. Brock Lynn at Lynn Dental Care in Dallas, TX. Dr. Lynn will perform a thorough examination to determine your overall oral health. If gum disease is present, he will gauge the severity of your case. Sometimes, gum disease can be treated with a professional cleaning and mouth rinse, or by changing brushing and eating habits. Other times, the disease needs to be treated with more advanced methods.One treatment option that has been successful for many patients is laser gum surgery. Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP) achieves great results without the need to cut into the gums. This treatment, which removes bacteria from between the teeth and gum line, is less invasive than typical gum and oral surgery and keeps the surrounding, healthy tissue intact. That contributes to better overall outcomes, including less recession of the gums. Another form of laser gum treatment is called Laser Pocket Decontamination. Again, this procedure is not surgical and does not require incisions. A trained Lynn Dental Care staff member uses the laser on affected areas to eliminate bacteria in the mouth. This gives the mouth a new, fresh start for good oral health.
