Periodontal and Laser Therapy

Periodontal

Gums are the foundation of the teeth. Gum disease, also known as Periodontitis, leads to the destruction of the bone supporting the teeth. Resolving gum disease improves your oral heath, enhancing your smile and prolonging the life of your teeth. Advanced gum disease leads to spacing between your teeth and unsightly red bleeding gums. Usually, it is accompanied by bad breath (Halitosis).

Teeth become loose, leading to discomfort and a reduction in function. There is also a link between heart disease and Periodontitis, and also with many other medical conditions such as diabetes, so good healthy gums are essential. It is possible to treat gum disease using a variety of techniques, such as deep cleaning of the teeth, improving home oral hygiene, and surgery.

The treatment chosen will depend on the severity of the disease and will be explained to you fully. It will be tailored to your individual needs. In severe cases, treatment can be carried out under sedation.

Laser Dental Therapy for Periodontics

At Oracle, we pride ourselves on seeking to improve the treatments and services we offer to all our patients.

With the advancement of modern science and powerful research into the effectiveness of new processes, we are pleased to be able to introduce Laser Dental Therapy to our list of periodontal services.

How does it work?

The use of lasers is considered effective and suitable for treating a variety of inflammatory and infectious conditions, such as periodontal and peri-implant diseases. The laser is used to deliver energy in the form of light, which is then applied to the soft tissues around the teeth in order to ‘burn’ or vaporise the bacteria responsible for plaque. By removing this bacteria, we can focus on improving the overall gum health, reinforced by rigorous aftercare in order to help promote natural regeneration of the bone around the teeth.

Our laser dentistry has proven results and offers many benefits to patients seeking periodontal treatments. Treatment is less invasive than traditional methods such as root planning, and as such patients benefit from reduced healing time, less bleeding and less need for suturing. The treatment itself is comfortable, and in most cases does not require anaesthetic – Most patients describe the sensation as a “slight warm feeling on the gums” and experience minimal soreness.
