What is Gum Disease?

It may sound daunting, but gum disease is much more common than you might think, and most adults experience some form of it at some time in their lives.

  • Red or swollen gums
  • Bleeding gums when you brush or floss
  • Sore gums

Gum disease can occur in different severities, and in the most severe cases, can lead to tooth loss and bone loss.

The earliest stage of gum disease – referred to as gingivitis – is fully reversible with a combination of professional dental treatments and a rigorous at-home oral hygiene routine. More severe periodontitis can only be slowed down, which is why it’s so important to catch gum disease in its earlier stages.

And the most effective way to halt the progression of gum disease is laser gum treatment.

What causes Gum Disease?

Gum disease, otherwise known as periodontal disease, usually occurs as a result of a build-up of plaque, which if left untreated eventually impacts the health of your gums.

Whilst plaque build-ups are the primary cause of gum disease, many other factors can contribute, including:

  • Hormonal changes – the hormonal changes that occur within our bodies during puberty, monthly menstruation, pregnancy and menopause can make gums more sensitive – making it easier for gingivitis to develop.
  • Illnesses – certain illnesses can affect the condition of your gum. These include both cancer and HIV, among others. Patients with these diseases are at a high risk of developing infections, including gum disease.
  • Habits – nicotine use, be it in the form of traditional cigarettes or vapes, makes it difficult for your gum tissue to repair itself, leading to an increased risk of periodontal disease.
  • Genetics – if your family members have a history of dental disease, you may be at an increased risk of developing periodontal disease.
  • Oral hygiene habits – poor oral hygiene habits, like not brushing and flossing in between your teeth twice every day, make it much easier for bacteria to build up on your teeth and around the gum line, which puts you at an increased risk of developing gum disease.

How does laser gum treatment work?

Laser gum treatment is a perfectly safe, cutting-edge procedure that works to treat gum disease effectively. Using a series of lasers, we’re able to precisely target an area with built-up plaque, deeply cleaning the tooth and root, and deep pockets.
What’s different about laser gum treatment is that it can target the exact area that’s infected, without impacting the surrounding healthy teeth or gum tissue.

Through our innovative laser gum treatment, we can treat and prevent gum disease efficiently for long-lasting results you can trust. The laser gum surgery on offer at Al-Fa Perio is one that offers the best chance of a successful outcome!

The ideal solution for anxious patients

If the thought of going to the dentist, even for a simple check-up, fills you with dread, you aren’t alone – over 50% of adults in the UK suffer from dental anxiety.

Whether it’s because of a past experience or just a general dislike, it’s nothing to be embarrassed about, as we see lots of patients who worry about sitting in the dentist’s chair. 

A lot of our nervous patients feel that our laser treatment is a more suitable option for them, thanks to its precision and the fact that there’s minimal invasion involved, so treating your gum disease in this way needn’t be a traumatic experience.

What’s more, you don’t need to worry about long recovery times with laser treatment in Essex, which is a common side effect of more traditional surgical procedures.

If you struggle to manage your anxiety when it comes to the dentist, this might be the perfect solution for you.

What to expect after laser gum surgery

With laser treatment being a minimally invasive and virtually pain-free way of treating gum disease, you should be able to resume your normal activities the day after your surgery.

Everyone is different though, so if it takes you a little longer to get yourself back on your feet, don’t worry!

For a few days post-surgery, you may experience some tenderness, swelling, light bleeding and discolouration of the gum tissue.

Most patients heal from laser gum surgery within a week, and during this time your dentist will recommend that you:

  • don’t brush or floss the affected area
  • eat a soft diet
  • stop using nicotine products – like cigarettes and vapes

Frequently Asked Questions

Who can benefit from laser dentistry?

If you’re suffering from sudden onset of gum disease or even reoccurring Periodontal disease, then there’s a high chance that laser dentistry could be the right choice for you. Not only is it much less invasive and painful when compared to other gum disease treatments, such as scaling and root planning, but it can also be done in a shorter time. Another key benefit of laser dentistry for gum disease is that it allows for unrivalled precision, meaning that it will only target the problem area, and won’t impact healthy parts of the mouth, teeth or gums.

Laser dentistry can also be a beneficial option if you have fears of the dentist thanks to its low-intensity approach. So, if you have a form of gum disease, why not contact our team of experts to find out more about our treatment and see whether it’s right for you?

What is the recovery time after laser dentistry treatment?

When it comes to treating gum disease, many of the available solutions can see you in pain and out of work for days following. One of the main benefits of laser dentistry in Essex is that you can usually return to work on the same or following day. With a gentle diet immediately following the procedure, you should be right as rain before you know it, meaning there is as little impact on your everyday life as possible.

How much does laser dentistry in Essex cost?

One of the main reasons why so many opt for laser dentistry to solve their gum disease issues is that it is a very affordable procedure, that yields fantastic results. Of course, the price of the procedure varies depending on things such as severity of the condition, as well as the type and extent of gum disease you’re suffering from. With that said, we’re proud to say we offer some of the most competitive prices available, as well as 0% finance options to suit a range of budgets and circumstances.

Does laser treatment on gums hurt?

No. Although laser dentistry in Essex may sound daunting, you can feel confident that you’re in the safest hands with us. Our team of specialists work with you to ensure you’re comfortable and pain-free for the duration of the treatment, and we offer local anaesthetic so that there’s no risk of discomfort during the procedure.

It’s entirely common to feel some mild pain and discomfort in the following days after our procedure, and your dentist will be able to advise you on how best to treat this as your mouth heals.

When can I eat after laser gum surgery?

During the first few days after your laser gum treatment in Essex, it’s normal for your mouth to feel sore and sensitive. We normally advise a soft diet for the first week, which should help your mouth heal nicely without causing too much discomfort.

Foods such as pasta, yoghurt and eggs are a good place to start, whilst you should avoid hard or particularly spicy foods in the immediate period after your laser gum surgery.
