Gum Disease Treatment - Ft. Worth, TX
Defeat Gum Disease
Your Smile Needs Healthy Gums
Gum tissue is one of the most important parts of your mouth. Along with providing support for your bone and teeth, gums help create a barrier against bacteria. When plaque is left to buildup on your teeth, it hardens into calculus and releases toxins that infect your gum tissue, breaking this seal that keeps bacteria out. Gum disease often goes undetected by individuals, which is why this disease is so dangerous. Because it’s progressive, gum disease will continue to damage your gum tissue, bone, and teeth and even exacerbate systemic conditions like diabetes and heart disease, if not properly managed. By the time patients visit our office for gum disease treatment in Fort Worth, TX, many have been living with gingivitis or a more advanced stage of gum disease for a while. Don’t wait to get treatment from our experienced dentists if you’ve noticed your gums are more tender than usual or bleed easily whenever you brush and floss!

Treating Gum Disease with Laser Therapy
If you are experiencing even one of the symptoms of gum disease, we can provide targeted treatment with laser therapy. Using our diode laser, we can eradicate the bacteria from the teeth and pockets around your tooth roots, without needing to make any incisions in your gum tissue. Laser therapy relies on a beam of light that targets and eliminates bacteria on the teeth and gum tissue and is an efficient way to treat most stages of gum disease. Additionally, laser therapy is often a more comfortable treatment for patients and provides a faster, virtually pain-free recovery. We provide many treatments for gum disease, which all provide predictable results, but many patients choose laser gum disease treatment because it creates a more comfortable and efficient treatment process overall.
