What to Expect from Advanced Tissue Grafting
If you brush regularly, you may think that you are not at risk for gum disease. That is a common misconception. A condition once associated with aging or poor oral hygiene, gum disease is now known to have numerous contributing factors. Because gum disease begins simply, with bleeding gums, it is easy to overlook. It is important to assess whether you are in danger of developing gum disease in Lafayette, LA, and take the necessary steps to protect your smile.
Be sure to learn the warning signs, which include bleeding or swollen gums, receding gums, bad breath, loose teeth, wide periodontal pockets, and bone loss. When detected early, treatment can be as simple as antibiotic therapy or deep cleanings. Call our office to schedule a consultation with our periodontist, Dr. James M. Finley, if you believe that you have gum disease. He provides laser gum surgery, a minimally invasive alternative to traditional treatment that uses gentle dental lasers to clear away disease without harming any healthy tissue or bone. With laser gum disease treatment, you will feel virtually no pain, experience very little swelling or bleeding, and get back to normal activities within days!
