Brightening Lives With New Smiles

Laser Treatment For Gingivitis in Springfield, Beavercreek, and Bellefontaine, OH

The orthodontic treatments we offer at Dhingra Orthodontics will work wonders for your smile and quality of life, but there are times when extra care is needed to ensure the oral health of our patients is improved and maintained. When it comes to oral health, we’ve found that gingivitis (gum disease) is a common culprit preventing our patients from having the healthiest smiles!

In conjunction with orthodontic treatment, Dr. Azie Dhingra and Dr. Seema Dhingra are capable of performing laser therapy to help prevent and treat gum disease. This procedure can drastically improve your oral health and enhance your perfect smile.

Laser therapy for gingivitis is a great way to protect your smile. As you read on, we’ll explain more about gum disease and determine if you’re a good candidate for this minimally invasive procedure!

What Is Gum Disease?

Early stage gum disease – or gingivitis – affects the gums, bones and surrounding tissues of the teeth. It occurs when the gums become inflamed and red because of plaque that has been allowed to build up and harden for too long. Infected gums also bleed easily when brushed or flossed.

Some factors that lead to gum disease include:

If left untreated, gum disease can progress to periodontitis which can cause tooth loss, bone loss and other serious health conditions. While getting orthodontic treatment at Dhingra Orthodontics, our expert doctors are able to diagnose early stage gum disease, and can recommend laser treatment to prevent periodontitis if needed. 

How Does Laser Therapy For Gingivitis Work?

Laser therapy addresses gingivitis by removing diseased gum tissue and smoothing out rough places in the gums that cause plaque build-up. The removal of diseased gum tissue and plaque allows new, healthy tissue to regenerate.

Laser therapy alleviates symptoms of early stage gum disease without invasive surgery, so patients leave our office without cuts and scars in their gums. When combined with orthodontic treatment, laser therapy can make smiles brighter and healthier than they’ve ever been!
