Laser Gum Cleaning

Fight Plaque & Tartar Buildup Safely & Comfortably

Are you suffering from swollen or bleeding gums, or do you have mouth sores or persistent bad breath? If you are experiencing any of these symptoms or if you have gums that have pulled away from the teeth or that are sore to the touch, you may have gingivitis. If gingivitis goes untreated it can not only result in pain and discomfort, but tooth decay, which can lead to tooth loss and the need for dentures or dental implants.

Gingivitis is a form of periodontal disease (gum disease), which consists of inflammation and infection that destroys the gums and teeth. Gingivitis is caused by the long-term effects of plaque deposits. Plaque is a sticky substance that is made up of bacteria and food debris that builds up on the exposed parts of the teeth, and is a major cause of tooth decay.

When plaque is left untreated, it turns into a hard substance called tartar that becomes trapped at the base of the tooth. As a result, the plaque and tartar buildup irritate and inflame the gums, and it's the bacteria they produce that causes the gums to become swollen, tender and infected.

The symptoms of gingivitis include:

  • Bleeding gums
  • Swollen gums
  • Gums that have pulled away from the teeth
  • Persistent bad breath
  • Mouth sores
  • Gums that are tender to the touch
