There is a direct correlation between inflammation of the gums and devastating, life threatening diseases. Gum tissue surrounding the teeth becomes compromised due to inflammation which then becomes a gateway of entry for the bacteria that is present within the periodontal pockets surrounding the teeth.
The U. S. Surgeon General, numerous reports and studies suggest that the bacteria associated with periodontal disease and chronic gum inflammation can contribute to Alzheimer’s, Heart Attacks and Strokes. In addition, Diabetes, Kidney Failure and doubling of Heart Attacks can be affected by poor gum health. Women who are pregnant are more likely to have Pre-Term or Low Birth Weight babies when dealing with the addition of gum disease.
The use of dental soft tissue lasers give us the ability to attack periodontal inflammation at the microscopic level. The laser focuses a light of power, targeting bacterial colonies, unreachable with older technologies and at the same time promotes an environment of healing.
