Gum disease occurs when plaque builds up below the gum line, infecting and inflaming the soft tissues and bone structure supporting the teeth. It begins with gingivitis, which does not present any symptoms of overt or noticeable discomfort. When gingivitis is left untreated, it continues to progress to a more advanced stage of gum disease, which is known as periodontitis. Symptoms of periodontitis may include those early signs of gum disease such as swollen or tender gums, bleeding when you brush or floss, with the added features of gum recession and a loss of supporting bone around the teeth. To begin care, our dentist performs a comprehensive examination, assisted by advanced digital radiography, as needed, to accurately diagnose the presence of periodontal disease and to develop an effective treatment plan. By using advanced LANAP technology, our laser dentist Mira Mesa can treat periodontitis without the need for any surgical incisions or stitches. Dental lasers operate without any heat, pressure of vibration of conventional approaches to care, removing only damaged tissues. In terms of surgical procedures, dental lasers cauterize as they go and help to stimulate the regrowth and reattachment of periodontal tissues. At the office of Dr. Melinda Marino, our goal is to deliver the most effective, precise and comfortable care. Our team of professionals will discuss all your treatment options to determine if LANAP is right for you.
