As seen in our previous blog posts we discussed how gum disease is very common amongst adults. Signs of gum disease include bleeding gums, persistent bad breath, receding gums, sensitive teeth and swollen gums which I’m sure we can all relate to. These are only some of the reasons why people need gum treatment. Patients also undergo this treatment for aesthetic gum correction. Our specialised Periodontists can help you achieve your perfect smile by correcting uneven gum lines, lengthen teeth that appear small and root coverage which covers exposed roots/long teeth. Thankfully there is a new treatment which can help make it all a smooth procedure.
Dr. Joy Dental Clinic was the first private practice in the UAE to have the most powerful and advanced dental laser, the Waterlase iPlus from Biolase USA. Like many people I have always been hesitant to address the issue of gum treatment. This was primarily due to the pain element that has been associated with traditional treatments. To everyone’s delight the Waterlase iPlus laser treatment offers a virtually pain free procedure, less bleeding and a faster healing time which is usually within 24hours. Laser treatment is the preferred option for many people as it enables you to avoid surgery while undergoing the effective treatment you need. Many of us had the perception that gum treatment was a painful process followed by days of discomfort but thanks to the Waterlase iPlus this is no longer a worry.
The Waterlase iPlus is excellent in treating gum disease. The laser removes the diseased tissue and sterilizes the areas from bacteria. This allows the diseased gums to heal quickly and prevents the gums shrinkage normally associated with surgery. The Waterlase iPlus also allows treatments to be performed in half the time when compared to traditional methods. It also requires fewer visits to the dentist, making it more convenient for patients and their busy schedules, and leaves you with few excuses to avoid gum treatment. Biolase Waterlase iPlus and ez-Lase Dental Soft Tissue Lasers are also used for gum depigmentation. After just one visit you can leave Dr. Joy Dental Clinic with the pink gums you were hoping for. Although the results are not long term, you will only have to get the procedure topped up after 2-3 years.
By using Biolase Waterlase iPlus here at Dr. Joy Dental Clinic we have ensured that gum treatment has never been as easy and pain free, leaving many of our patients wondering why they hadn’t done it sooner.
