Gum bleeding problems, periodontitis, and gummy smile are some common gum problems. Not caring for your oral health and gums can lead to serious problems. Just like other areas of the body, gums are also susceptible to the risk of infection. Here’s how Periodontics can help you get rid of the various gum diseases and maintain good oral hygiene.
What is Gum Disease Treatment?
Some individuals tend to experience bleeding of the gums when we brush our teeth, and gingivitis – the early stage of gum disease – is often painless and can be cured by improvements in oral hygiene. If untreated, however, this can lead to periodontitis, a serious form of gum disease.
Such issues can cause damage to the bone and soft tissue which surrounds our teeth. Over time, the bacteria in our mouths can build up and collect in the spaces between the teeth and gum. This increase in bacteria can cause inflammation and decay, and when left untreated can result in tooth loss and further health problems.

Which Technique is Used?
Which Technique is Used?
At Euromed Clinic, we always use the latest techniques to perform this procedure. The dentist recommends good oral hygiene practice, as well as improved dietary habits, to combat the progression of periodontitis. However, with mild-to-severe cases of the disease, periodontal laser therapy offers an effective – and thanks to the clever use of anesthesia a virtually pain-free treatment option.
Periodontal laser therapy is a minimally invasive three-step treatment that suppresses the advancement of gum disease and prevents the need for any later surgery (unless severe bone defects are detected). Using innovative Waterlase (hard tissue lasers) technology our expert dentist will first remove the diseased epithelial lining from the periodontal pocket, then the calculus from the root surface, and finally seal the pocket with a stable fibrin clot.
How to Prepare for the Treatment
You will have to discontinue smoking and drinking. Avoiding aspirin and any other blood-thinners is also necessary. The dentist will provide more guidelines based on the gums’ condition.
Post-Op Care and the Recovery Time
The recovery period is not long. You will have to avoid certain foods and drinks for some time. You will be recovered in just a few days if you follow the dentist’s instructions.
