Periodontal Therapy: Laser Gum Procedures in Pomona
Periodontal (gum) health plays a vital role in overall wellbeing. The same bacteria that infect gum tissue can invade the entire body and contribute to serious health issues that decrease quality of life. Dr. Tesser, a Board-Certified Periodontist, specializes in advanced gum disease treatments. He delivers targeted periodontal therapies that alleviate infection and improve gum health.
But my gums are fine!
People with early-stage gum disease, called gingivitis, often don’t know that they have a problem. Research shows that 75% of all Americans over 35 have some form of gum disease. Bleeding when brushing or red, puffy gums are often the only symptoms at the onset. Left untreated, this bacterial infection may worsen to the point that patients lose teeth, gum, and bone. The good news? Gingivitis is treatable with a deep dental cleaning at our office and proper brushing and flossing at home.
Non-Invasive Periodontal Therapy for Good Gum Health
Dr. Tesser often recommends antibiotic therapy for patients with advanced cases of gum disease. Severe gum disease may require surgery to remove diseased tissue and encourage growth of healthy tissue. Using a state-of-the-art Styla MicroLaser, our Periodontist eliminates the bacteria that cause gum tissue to renew periodontal wellness and lessen the risk of overall health complications.
The hand-held Styla laser is wireless for easy maneuverability and comfortable procedures. You won’t need stitches following laser surgery because the concentrated beam of light seals tissue as it goes. Minimal bleeding occurs as well. With laser gum disease therapy performed by our periodontist, you’ll resume normal activities quickly following treatment and be the proud owner of a healthy smile!
