Patients with gum disease may experience bleeding gums, which is a sign of inflammation. At Eramosa Dental, we provide laser therapy for our patients with gum disease. Laser therapy is a quick and painless procedure that works to kill the bacteria associated with periodontal disease, as well as decrease inflammation and promote tissue healing. Results are quick and significant, and patients usually see a difference in bleeding after just one or two sessions! Furthermore, laser therapy can also be used to treat cold sores by drying the lesion, thus effectively shortening the duration of the lesion.
If you have deep gum pockets, gum inflammation or bleeding, cold sores, and/or persistent bad breath, don’t hesitate to ask our dentists or hygienists for more details!
