If you are experiencing sore or bleeding gums, you may have periodontal disease, also called gum disease. This occurs when there is an infection in the supporting tissues of the mouth due to destructive bacteria. Your hygienist and dentist at Omni Dental will assess your periodontal health and make recommendations on the best therapy to treat the periodontal disease.
Treatments we offer include Laser Assisted Periodontal Therapy (LAPT) that is non-surgical and involves using a laser to kill bacteria and remove diseased gum tissue. After the periodontal therapy, we may recommend bacterial testing by Microbe Link Dx to check bacterial levels in the mouth. We also offer an oral probiotic called ProBiora to restore beneficial bacteria to the mouth.
