Here at King’s Avenue, we can help you get back on track with your gum health and to ensure gum disease does not return in the future.
Gum disease is a threat to your oral health, but it can also affect your general health if it is left untreated. Gum disease is an inflammatory disease associated with an imbalance with bacteria present in the mouth, the first signs of which are bleeding and inflamed gums. Once gum disease really takes hold, the bacteria can develop under your gum and produce toxins that stimulate the breakdown of the underlying bone, that can result in eventual tooth loss.
The good news is that it’s completely avoidable with intervention. Here at King’s Avenue, Dr Gary Cohen has a special interest in periodontics (the treatment of advance gum disease). He can treat the first signs of gum disease and more advanced cases where bacteria have begun to weaken the supporting structures under your gum line.
At King’s Avenue Dr Gary Cohen also uses state-of-the-art laser therapy to perform gum disease-related treatment. Laser therapy uses a focussed beam of light and targets harmful bacteria that build up on your gum line. It also helps to stimulate effective healing and reduce post operative pain that is often associated with routine treatment.
King’s Avenue is one of the few practices in the Muswell Hill area to offer laser treatment for gum disease.
Laser therapy is extremely effective for the treatment of gum disease for the following reasons:
Dental lasers dramatically lower your chances of post-treatment discomfort.
Faster healing time
Going beyond sterilising the treated area, lasers actively bolster the body’s healing process, which means you can make a full recovery, quickly.
In many cases, lasers eliminate the need for the use of anaesthetic. They also result in less swelling and bleeding, which adds up to reduced levels of discomfort during and after your procedure.
Lasers allow for precision and customised care
As lasers are a focused beam of light, the wavelength and power are completely adjustable to any given case. This means Dr Gary Cohen can work with diligence and precision, resulting in accurate results for his patients.
There are multiple factors and habits that are directly linked to the evolution of gum disease. During your treatment journey we can help you to identify where you might be going wrong with your lifestyle habits and diet, so that your risk factors for gum disease can be lessened.
