At our office, Sunrise Dental Service, we understand no two cases are the same. Everyone who walks through our doors has specific concerns and unique needs, similar to this patient who was suffering from gum (periodontal) disease. His anxieties regarding his bleeding, swollen, and painful gums led him to our office. Dr. Makadia sat down with him to explain what caused his current oral health condition and what can be done to resolve it. Using the latest technology, here’s how Dr. Makadia was able to restore a healthy smile.
Personalized Approach for Every Patient
While many people know about the risks of tooth decay, few people understand gum disease is equally devastating, which was the case for this gentleman. He didn’t know the importance of gum health. He wasn’t aware that bleeding, swollen gums, and bad breath were indicators of gingivitis, so the issue had been ignored for some time.
Unfortunately, situations such as this aren’t uncommon. Although gum disease can be prevented, at least 50% of Americans have the infection, making it the leading cause of tooth loss. Thankfully, we were able to prevent further damage to the gentleman’s oral and general health using the NdYag Fotona Laser. We were successful in treating infection through a painless experience.
The advanced dental laser targets diseased tissue to stop the infection in its tracks. It’s more effective than more traditional procedures because it doesn’t require any scalpels or sutures. The laser removes infected tissue and sterilizes the area. It also cauterizes the tissue to promote fewer post-operative complications, like inflammation and bleeding.
The NdYag Fotona Laser encourages the regeneration of healthy tissue, allowing it to reattach to the teeth to prevent the infection from reoccurring. By the time this patient came back for his follow-up appointment, his bad breath, swollen gums, and bleeding were gone. Through a team approach, our office was able to preserve his gums, teeth, and underlying bone. We educated him about the importance of improved oral hygiene habits and routine dental care to prevent the infection from resurfacing.
