Benefits Of Treating Gum Disease With A Laser

Maintaining oral hygiene is very important! Starting from childhood everyone should properly clean and maintain the teeth. If proper maintenance is not done, it can lead to several problems. One of the most common oral problems is gum disease. Also, known as periodontal disease, the disease occurs when there is an inflammation in the gum line. Gum disease if not treated at the right time can damage your teeth line and affect the connective tissues and bones. In the worst case, it can lead to teeth loss.

The gums get infected when the plaque starts building up along and under the gum line. Some common symptoms may include bleeding gums, pain while chewing, swelling and redness of the gums, deep pockets in-between two teeth and bad breath.

How is laser used to treat gums?

To treat any kind of gum disease deep cleaning (scaling) and root planing are conducted, if the problem isn’t solved, open flap surgery is opted.

The minimally invasive laser treatment is a great success in this regard. These high energy light beams are passed on to the affected gum area which blasts away the harmful bacteria from the affected areas of the gum. This is by far the most comfortable form of treatment which involves no cutting, bleeding, sutures and swelling!

Why Laser treatment for gums is so successful?

The reasons for the success of laser treatment are:

  • Minimally invasive so no bleeding or pain is involved.
  • It completely destroys the bacteria from the gums thereby provides long lasting results.
  • The treatment gets completed within a short period of time.
  • As no cuts are made, there is no hassle of having stitches.
  •  Minimal chance of a swelling post the laser treatment.

Missing Tooth Replacement with Dental Implants

Traditionally the concept of replacing missing or damaged tooth was different. The treatment employed were partial dentures, complete dentures, fixed partial dentures & their variants. But today dental implants are used to treat missing tooth. Dental implants have brought a lot of changes. When dental implants are used, no conventional bridges are required thereby it maintains the strength and structure of the tooth.

How are the dental implants placed?


During surgery, the dentist makes a cut to open the gum. This exposes the bone inside and then holes are drilled in the bone. The artificial dental implant is inserted deep into those holes. The implants serve as a tooth root on whuch a cap or crown is fixed. Within a few months the jawbone grows and unites with the dental implant.

Who needs dental implants?

  • In case of a missing tooth.
  • In case of a gross damaged tooth.
  • Severe gum disease with loose teeth



Following are the reasons why dental implants are used for tooth replacement:
  • It prevents bone loss as it replaces the jawbone stimulation.
  • Dental implants look similar to your teeth. Thereby it matches your teeth structure and colour and provides a natural look.
  • Helps to bite and chew food properly.
  • When you lose a tooth, your face structure might change. Dental implants with fixed teeth or dentures prevent or help overcome the changes.
  • It prevent the adjacent teeth migration in to spaces of missing teeth.
  • Using dental implants for missing tooth is a permanent solution.

Pearl White Teeth, Not Just a Dream Anymore !

A beautiful smile is everyone’s signature accessory. An impeccable set of teeth helps you to greet people gracefully. Dazzling white teeth helps you smile more confidently but not all of us are really blessed with them. Diet, smoking, not brushing regularly are some common reasons of yellowing of teeth. Yellow teeth would keep bothering you all the time if not taken care of.


So how can you get your teeth whitened and flashy again?

Don’t worry. The advancements in dental technology has ways to whiten your teeth and also to make it last.
Whitening the teeth is one of the most common cosmetic dental procedure. If you have healthy gums and no other dental complications, then you are good to go. Professional teeth whitening can be done in several ways.

South side dental provides you mainly two types of teeth whitening treatments:

In-office bleaching and at home bleaching:

In-office bleaching, as the name indicates, is done at the clinic. The method is to apply certain bleaching agents to whiten your teeth. Chemicals like Carbamide peroxide, Hydrogen Peroxide are used for this. This procedure can take about fifteen minutes and you may have to follow-up for 2 or 3 times, as your dentist says.

Lasers may also be used to enhance the effectiveness of this method. The laser will activate the bleaching gel making your teeth several shades whiter.

The second type which can be done at home, is simpler. Here an impression of your teeth is taken to make a mouth guard by your dentist. This mouth guard is filled with a bleaching gel which you should wear it at night as long as you dentist tells you. You should regularly do this for about 2-4 weeks for the desired effect.

Teeth whitening procedures rarely comes with any side effects but there might be increased sensitivity in your teeth afterwards. Therefore, it is essential to have an experienced dentist guide you.

Oral hygiene Day- What your mouth is trying To Tell You?

Oral Hygiene Day is observed every year by the Indian Society of Periodontology (ISP), and various other institutions to commemorate the birth anniversary of Dr. G B Shankwalkar, the doyen of Indian Periodontics and founder of the Indian Society of Periodontology, who was born on 1st August.

Every year, ISP, along with its members, dental associations such as the Indian Dental Association (IDA) and its state branches, Rotary clubs, dental colleges all over the country and Private organizations celebrate the Oral hygiene day on 1st August. Its primary objective is to make people aware of oral hygiene and its importance and to curb the bothersome trend of neglect which has been one of the main causes of dental diseases.

Oral hygiene: A window to your overall health

Most of us don’t know that our overall health and happiness is closely linked to our dental health — or that problems in the mouth can have an effect on the rest of the body?  The 18th-century French paleontologist and comparative anatomist George Cuvier stated: “Show me your teeth, and I will tell you who you are”. The guy possessed one of the finest minds in history. He was onto something.

Defend yourself by learning more about the relationship between your oral health and overall health. During the past few years, physicians and periodontal researchers have collected a trove of evidence showing that not only can the teeth and gums act as a barometer for how well the body is doing; they may directly affect the health of the brain, heart, metabolism and even reproductive organs.

Exaggeration? Fair enough, maybe. But look at the details: The mouth is the human body’s most common entry point for infection, yet all of us have almost ignored it. Although every medical condition has some kind of manifestation in the mouth, medical schools basically taught that the body began at the tonsils until last decade. It is so fitting to call the mouth the ‘black hole’ of the body because it’s a mystery to most medical folks.

Do you ever notice that when you floss or brush, your gums bleed? Then, you should know that is a sign of gum disease. Bleeding gums also shows how simple it is for bacteria to enter the bloodstream and travel through your body wreaking havoc. In fact, it is well documented that gum disease can increase the risk of heart disease, stroke, cancer (including pancreatic cancer, breast cancer, oesophageal cancer etc) and other serious problems. Low-birth-weight in babies and Pregnancy complications has also been linked to gum disease.

Periodontal concerns are usually linked with cardiovascular diseases, and the two conditions share a few key risk factors, such as obesity, smoking, and deprived nutritional intake. It is estimated that up to 91% of people suffering from heart conditions are also dealing with periodontal infections. Diabetes is the other major area of oral-systemic research. Several studies reveal that those who’ve got gum disease are more likely to develop or have diabetes; the worse the gums, likely the worse is diabetes. Farther down from the mouth, we can find deflating figures for erectile dysfunction. A 2013 Turkish study embraced the ED-PD connection strongly and stated that you have up to a three times greater chance of developing ED if you’ve got PD.

It’s high time to start thinking of the mouth as an ecosystem of bacteria that can drive health and sickness, similar to how we now view the gut.  Your dentist has been irritating you to brush twice a day and floss daily-- and while those habits, together with standard cleanings; regular checkups are vital care components to keeping your teeth and gums healthy.

Oral Hygiene Day is on August 1, and it’s time to “Live Mouth Smart” by practising good oral health. After all, our choppers do more than help us chow down. They help us to talk, kiss, smile, breathe—and other gestures we oftentimes take for granted.
