Periodontitis has various forms such as
Chronic Periodontitis: This is the most common form of periodontitis. Gingival recession and pocket formation are the main features of this type. It occurs more in adults.
Aggressive Periodontitis: Sudden loss of attachment, familial aggregation, and bone destruction are the distinctiveness of this condition.
Mild Periodontitis: It is the beginning form of periodontitis. When the plaque hardens into calculus in between the gum and tooth space, the problem starts. Bacteria and toxins easily invade below the gum line. These easily attack the gum tissue and bone which supports the teeth.
Laser gum treatment is a pervading method which simplifies the method of treatment with no pain, no bleed, and shorter recovery.
Gum diseases are treated with Gingivectomy and Gingivoplasty by Laser. The most common laser called “diode laser” is currently employed in such treatments.
Periodontal gum diseases are treated with LANAP, (Nd: YAG) Laser which results in less tissue removal, with less discomfort and gum recession than the conventional periodontal surgery with no scalpels or sutures.
