Monaca, PA (PRWEB) August 31, 2015
Dr. Joseph J. Skoff now offers a revolutionary laser gum therapy to treat individuals with gum disease in Monaca, PA. This FDA-cleared technology is known as the BIOLASE WaterLase iPlus 2.0™ System, and it has been proven safe and effective as an alternative to traditional oral surgery methods. The precision possible with the special wavelength of light eliminates the potential for hairline tooth fractures and damaged gum tissue, preserving more of the natural structures in the mouth and preventing future tooth loss.
Brushing, flossing and professional dental cleanings are necessary for removing plaque from the teeth and gums. When it is allowed to harden, this substance irritates tissues below the gum line and causes infection. Pus pockets form in the gums and pull them away from the roots of teeth, and a person experiencing this severity of gum disease in Monaca, PA needs to seek treatment right away to prevent tooth loss.
When a person seeks treatment for gum disease in Monaca, PA, a dentist using traditional methods drills out the decay in the teeth, scrapes calculus from the outer surfaces and removes infected and damaged gum tissue. The dentist must often cut the gums to access the area, which causes further harm. The invasive and traumatic nature of the drill and scalpel frequently lead to issues that delay or prevent a full recovery. At times, gum tissue is unable to fully reattach to the roots of teeth because of damage to the delicate tissues, resulting in recession.
The BIOLASE WaterLase iPlus 2.0™ laser gum therapy is minimally invasive and affects only the areas Dr. Skoff is treating without harming surrounding structures. The system combines laser, air and water, which do not cause the heat, friction and pressure that make traditional treatments so uncomfortable, so for most procedures, anesthetic is not necessary. The laser stimulates new tissue growth, which helps restore the gum line to restore a beautiful smile. Anyone interested in learning more about laser gum therapy or scheduling an appointment can call Dr. Skoff’s office.
