Laser vs Osseous Surgery

Many people suffer from periodontal disease yet only a small fraction of them actually seek treatment. This is partly because periodontal disease is not noticeable until it has taken a severe toll on your gum health. This can be dangerous. Maintaining proper gum health is important because without it, you risk damaging or possibly losing your teeth. Even worse, if you do not receive laser gum treatment, your bleeding gums in Nashville, TN can lead to more serious issues. These include heart disease, diabetes and pancreatic cancer, among others.

The following symptoms are often found to accompany periodontal disease:

Receding gum lines – If you notice a receding gum line or that your teeth appear longer than they used to, you might benefit from laser gum surgery.

Increased sensitivity – If your gums constantly bleed while brushing and flossing, this is a sign of poor gum health.

Inflammation – Inflammation or swelling of the gums is a common symptom.

Loose teeth – Periodontal disease can result in teeth becoming loose and shifting in position.

Bad breath – If you notice persistent bad breath or a constant bad taste in your mouth, you might be suffering from periodontal disease.
