What is Gingivitis?
We use the latest advancements in periodontal laser treatment (a non-invasive way to treat gum disease) also known as gingivitis. This condition is an infection of the gums that begins as plaque (a white film that forms over your teeth that can result in tartar).
Plaque is a magnet for bacteria, and that bacteria start to attack the soft tissue of the gums, leading to gum deterioration and nerve exposure. When left untreated, gingivitis can turn into periodontitis that affects the bone structure. If this is ignored, you may experience tooth loss.
If you suffer from gingivitis (or suspect you do), the Hummingbird Dental team provides complete periodontal care.
At Hummingbird Dental, we use state of the art lasers specifically designed to correct gum disease at any stage. This non-invasive, painless method of treating gum disease is an alternative to surgical procedures that can have a long recovery period. As part of our comprehensive periodontal therapy, we will care for and treat your gums. We will provide strategies to help you control plaque to prevent gingivitis in the future. Our periodontal team will discuss the entire laser treatment process from start to finish so you know what to expect.
We provide a toothbrush specifically designed for patients with sensitive teeth as part of after care procedures. You can be confident that we will apply the latest techniques using equipment specially designed to perform the treatment and improve your gum’s health.
