Did you know gum disease is related to other health problems such as diabetes, heart disease, osteoporosis, respiratory diseases, and certain types of cancer? This is because gum disease is often caused by unhealthy bacteria and chronic inflammation in the mouth. When you have healthy teeth and gums, you reduce the level of bad bacteria and inflammation in the body which will improve your overall health.
At Sloan Creek Dental, we use the latest technology for the treatment of gum disease. The Fotona Lightwalker dental laser allows us to perform therapies using safer techniques that produce better results. With a less invasive surgical approach, gum treatments using the Lightwalker laser have faster healing as well.
Laser gum treatments with the Lightwalker are FDA approved, so you can be sure it’s safe and effective. Contact us today to schedule an appointment to discuss your needs and treatment options!
