In the treatment of gingivitis, the treatment protocol is applied according to the level of gingivitis.
What is gingivitis?
It is now known that tartar causes gingivitis and must be removed. Disinfection of the gums is important when the tartar is cleaned and after this cleaning. Because bacteria means stone again. It is the bacteria that makes the stone anyway.
LASER IN THE TREATMENT OF GUMS
It uses a soft and hard tissue laser during and after treatment of the gums. The diseased tissue is removed and the healthy tissue is kept intact and free of bacteria. The laser device is used to reduce pain and bleeding. A hard tissue laser is also used to restore the gums back onto the root of the scaled tooth. The hard tissue laser allows the infected bone to be cleaned.
FIRST EXAMINATION IN GINGIVAL TREATMENT WITH LASER
After reviewing your medical history and dental records, you will have a comprehensive examination to determine the exact condition of your teeth and gums. The severity of the gum disease, any systemic conditions you have, all of these will be evaluated and all your concerns and questions will be addressed. Because the general opinion about gum disease in society is that the teeth will fall out one day. Laser disinfection and gingival treatment are treatments that relieve this common concern.
GUMS ARE EXAMINED WITH TOMOGRAPHY.
Since gum disease can cause bone loss, X-rays will be taken to assess the height of the jawbone.
GINGIVAL DISINFECTION WITH LASER
The area to be treated will be numbed (with special fine-tipped needles) and a gingival pocket (the corrugated structure that surrounds the tooth) will be prepared using a laser to provide access and visibility to destroy the diseased tissue and destroy any bacteria. The hard tissue laser will be able to eliminate the inflamed and diseased tissue up to the pocket or cavity formed by the gum separating from the tooth.
TOOTH ROOT CORRECTION WITH LASER
The laser is then adjusted to remove hardened calculus or plaque deposits from the tooth root. Depending on the physician’s preference, this is sometimes done with hand instruments and then disinfected.
IS LASER GUM TREATMENT PAINFUL?
Gum treatment with laser does not cause any pain. For the sensitivity that may occur during normal scaling, anesthesia is provided with special tipped anesthetics. The laser dose used during disinfection or during the correction of tooth roots does not cause any pain sensitivity.
