Are your gums in need of some special attention and care? If so, you’re not alone. Recent studies have shown that more than 80 percent of American adults have some form of gum disease. When it comes to diseases, gum disease or periodontal disease is actually one of the most common diseases in the United States. The unfortunate news is that many people due to fear of the dentist or fear of the discomfort and pain they might experience, never go in to get their gums treated.

Why Treat Your Gum Disease?
If you leave your gum disease untreated you run the risk of eventually losing your teeth. You can also experience bone loss and serious receding gums. Gum disease can also be very uncomfortable and can negatively affect your day to day life. This is just a cosmetic concern, it’s a quality of life concern and a health concern.
What Treatments Are There For Gum Disease?
Some milder forms of gum disease can be treated by practicing good oral hygiene such as brushing and flossing daily. Other gum disease needs a more serious approach such as medications and surgery. At Ralston Creek Dental we are proud to offer the latest in gum disease treatment, LANAP laser treatment.

It’s incredibly accurate and convenient. Plus, Dr. Ellis is a pioneer of the LANAP laser procedure in Colorado and has a great deal of experience and know-how in this field.
