Mississauga, ON (PRWEB) April 27, 2015
Individuals in the Toronto and Oakville surrounding areas looking for gum disease treatment are now invited to visit Mississauga, ON dentist, Dr. Deborah Williams with Bloor Street Dental for a less invasive alternative to traditional gum surgery. Dr. Williams uses the WaterLase iPlus™ dental laser to perform various periodontal disease treatments, including gingivectomy and calculus removal. Besides protecting against health complications associated with gum disease, the WaterLase iPlus™ treatment is precise and causes minimal irritation to the gums, reducing the risk of unwanted side effects.
The WaterLase iPlus™ uses laser energy and a continuous spray of water to cut through hard or soft tissue. With this dental laser, Dr. Williams can clean infected gum pockets or remove diseased gum tissue. The laser uses a short pulse to minimize gum irritation, and it does not create heat or friction, which reduces pain during and after the procedure. In many cases, Dr. Williams can perform the treatment with minimal anesthesia. Dr. Williams’ patients typically experience little swelling and require minimal healing time after the procedure. Treatment with the WaterLase iPlus™ also lowers the risk of infection since the laser uses disposable tips, which can be changed with every procedure, and since the laser does not directly touch the gum tissue.
Dr. Williams provides this procedure at her Mississauga office to ensure that people in and around the area can receive gum disease treatment even if they are reluctant to visit a dentist for gum surgery. Gum disease can cause various health complications if it is allowed to advance, including gum recession, which can leave teeth poorly supported or exposed to infection. Periodontal disease can also result in the loss of teeth and alveolar bone density. Research has even linked gum disease to a higher risk of systemic health problems such as stroke and heart disease. Treating gum disease at an earlier stage may help mitigate many of these risks.
Dr. Williams advises patients to know the signs of periodontal disease and take early symptoms seriously. Bleeding, inflammation and tenderness of the gums are common indicators of gum disease. Gum recession and changes in gum pocket size can also be warning signs. Some people may also notice tooth sensitivity or looseness as a result of gum recession. People in the Mississauga, Toronto and Oakville areas who notice these signs and need to see a dentist are encouraged to make an appointment with Dr. Williams by calling her practice office or visiting her website, http://www.bloorstreetdental.com.
