Do You Need BIOLASE Gum Disease Treatment?
Gum disease symptoms can appear gradually, beginning with red, swollen gums that may bleed upon brushing or flossing. Without intervention, bad breath, gum recession, loose teeth, and tooth loss can occur as the infection advances. The presence of gum disease has also been linked to several serious medical conditions, such as heart disease and stroke.
Early gum disease treatment with BIOLASE can prevent many of these symptoms and restore the health of your mouth with minimal downtime. For your laser dentistry consultation in Laurel, MD, contact Laurel Laser Dentistry today.
