Laser for gingivitis treatment
Gum Disease Treatment / Laser Periodontal Therapy
Gingivitis Treatment in Toronto
Gum disease (also known as periodontal disease) can be incredibly debilitating. Everyday tasks like chewing food or brushing your teeth can be uncomfortable and perhaps even painful. However, the bad taste in your mouth and those loose teeth won’t get better on their own.
Laser periodontal therapy for gum disease treatment may be just what you need.
What Causes Gum Disease?
Poor oral hygiene is the most common cause of periodontal disease. But it can also be onset by certain medications, chronic illnesses (e.g. diabetes), smoking, or genetic susceptibility.
How Does Laser Dentistry in Toronto Work?
When you undergo gum disease treatment in Toronto, we use a dental laser to remove any of the inflamed and infected gum tissue from around the base of your tooth. Once this is removed, we can begin a process called root scaling.
Root scaling entails scraping off the plaque and calculus that have built up around the tooth’s root and below the gum line. Then, we’ll use specialized instruments to smooth the root, removing any rough areas that might be a breeding ground for bacteria and could cause further infections. Once complete, the gum and root will regenerate themselves as your mouth heals.

What Are the Benefits of Dental Laser Treatment?
Traditional methods of gum disease treatment involve slicing the gum open, which often removes healthy tissue along with the infected tissue. However, laser therapy is much more precise and accurate, and it is far less invasive. Therefore, there’s less discomfort throughout the procedure and pain, swelling, and bleeding are kept to a minimum. You will also enjoy a quicker healing time.
