Do you have bad breath, red swollen gums, chewing pain, and even loose teeth or missing teeth? If your answer was yes to any of these signs, you may have a gum disorder, commonly known as periodontal disease. This might progress later in your life to serious oral compilations if you go without dealing with these issues as soon as possible.

Why is Gum Disease so Important

Gum disease is caused primarily by an accumulation of plaque inside your mouth, this plaque is created by the developing bacteria alongside the mucus as well as other influences such as food debris following a long meal. The bacteria will cause an allergic response that spreads across the whole body through your saliva in your mouth. 

Your immune system will start releasing substances that are responsible for destroying not only your gums and the ligaments around them, but also your alveolar bone, in response to this form of oral infection. 

What are My Options to Combat This

Dr. Rice and the amazing team at Advanced Laser Gum Surgery Institute of Washington have different options for fixing your periodontal issues and provide other remedies to prevent the disease from recurring and other disorders that would have a negative impact on your gums. Take a look at some of the services we offer. 

LANAP® (Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure) laser is an innovative piece of dental equipment used as a tool for the treatment of gum disease. It’s a highly invasive procedure with some patients saying it’s almost painless. This type of treatment option for gums enables Dr. Rice to use laser energy and water to reach materials such as teeth, bone, and gums. Yes, water is used by this device. The results reduced the need for anesthetic, making it ideal for all types of surgery with gum disease.
