Drs. Lawrence Addleson, R. Douglas Campbell, and David Landau encourage patients with tender, bleeding gums to schedule laser therapy for gum disease in Bonita, CA as soon as possible. The team stresses that seeking treatment at the first signs of gum disease is critical to ensuring the long-term health of their patient’s smiles.

Gum disease is a progressive condition that begins inconspicuously with infection and inflammation of the gum tissue from a buildup of plaque and tartar. Symptoms of the first stage, called gingivitis, include tender, bleeding gums, bad breath, and gum recession. Gum disease at this stage can be reversed with personalized treatment but is often so mild, many patients are not aware that treatment is needed. If the infection is allowed to progress, gum disease can cause irreversible damage to the gums and jaw bone, increasing the risk for loose teeth and even tooth loss. Research also shows a correlation between low-grade chronic inflammation from gum disease and other systemic health complications, including diabetes, respiratory disease, heart disease, and stroke.

Cosmetic Dentistry San Diego

Art of Dentistry is pleased to provide patients with a gum disease treatment option that is minimally invasive. Unlike traditional osseous surgery using scalpels and incisions, the team uses gentle laser therapy to eradicate bacteria from around the teeth and gums virtually painlessly. Dental laser technology also helps cauterize the treatment site and promotes new hard and soft tissue growth to accelerate the healing process. In most cases, gum disease treatment using dental lasers can be completed in a single appointment and is so gentle, most patients can return to normal activities the day of surgery or one to two days later. An alternative for osseous surgery, minimally invasive laser therapy provides numerous benefits to patients, including quick treatments, less pain, swelling, and bleeding, and a fast recovery period.
