Nearly half of the American population experiences gum disease at one time or another. Dental Partners of Brookline suggest that instead of opting for invasive periodontal surgery right away, it’s a good idea to explore soft tissue management techniques.
Soft tissue management minimizes gum infection, inflammation, and swelling and helps the healing process.
A soft tissue management treatment plan typically involves the following series of steps:
Gum disease can be reversed in the early stages, and it’s possible to restore oral health within a shorter time. Our dentists in Brookline, MA, offer state-of-the-art soft tissue management treatments near you.
Gum disease therapy doesn’t always involve complicated and long-term treatment. We have a range of non-surgical treatments that help restore your gum and overall health.
Soft tissue laser therapy is one of the safest and most effective ways to treat damaged soft tissue. Our qualified team of dentists is trained to use lasers without any unpleasant side-effects. The treatment is less invasive and associated with minimal discomfort. During treatment, beams of laser light are used to clean plaque from above and below the gum line.
Laser light also seals off blood vessels and nerve endings as they penetrate the tissue, reducing post-treatment pain and swelling. Our dentist is always happy to answer any questions regarding soft tissue treatments near you.
Soft tissue laser therapy reduces the need for other invasive treatments, and there is minimal bleeding as lasers encourage blood clotting. The lasers are used to sterilize the decayed area, and the chances of re-infection are low.
Laser soft tissue therapy also stimulates tissue regeneration, and healing is faster compared to conventional gum disease therapy. Give us a call today to schedule your appointment.
