Gum Disease Laser Therapy
When it comes to periodontal therapy, Shuayb Dental is the Tampa area’s leader. We provide the latest technology, coupled with the professional training and experience required to perform these cutting edge procedures. Including among these procedures, is our gum disease laser treatments.
Unlike other procedures that use dental tools to acquire a cleaner gum line, these tools can cause bleeding and swelling. The sounds usually attributed to the dentist’s chair can be avoided and stress and anxiety can be reduced greatly when using laser treatment technology. Since there is much less contact from tools within the mouth, recovery time is also decreased allowing for a quicker healing process.
Scaling and Root Planing
When treating periodontal disease, one of the first stages of treatment usually includes scaling or root planing as part of a thorough teeth cleaning. This procedure is intended to clean your teeth and gums of the plaque and tartar that has built up. Calculus, the dental definition, can cause periodontal disease and gum inflammation. Used as both preventative maintenace as part of a regular dental hygiene program, and as a stand-alone treatment when the situation calls for it, it is performed when issues ranging from moderate to severe gum disease, and gingivitis.
