The benefits of LANAP laser dentistry in Palo Alto CA cannot be overstated. If you are pregnant and suffering from gum disease, you need to treat it. Your OBGYN will likely advise you to do so immediately because of the risks gum disease poses to an unborn child. If you have gum disease, you are at a greater risk for having your baby premature, which can lead to a variety of health complications for them, including difficulty breathing, heart problems, etc. This condition can also lead to your baby being born underweight. This is why pregnant women are encouraged to receive regular dental care throughout their pregnancy.
The challenge is that while pregnant, you also must be careful with the types of medication you use and whether or not you are given anesthesia. Traditional gum disease treatments require this. That is because metal dental tools are used to scrape away the plaque and tartar, and this is incredibly uncomfortable. Simultaneously, if you have gum recession and need to have your gums restored, cuts and sutures will be made. Naturally, this too requires anesthesia. This is not the case with our solution, and that is what makes it safe for pregnant women.
Reasons to Schedule an Appointment for LANAP Laser Dentistry in Palo Alto CA
#1 - Your gum disease must be treated.
Leaving it alone is not a wise option, given the risk gum disease poses to your unborn child.
#2 - It is safe.
We use lasers to treat gum disease, and LANAP allows us to take the process one step further. We can actually restore your gum tissue safely and without needing to give you anesthesia.
#3 - The recovery process is fast.
Since we are not cutting into your gums or placing sutures, we can complete the process quickly so you can get in and out of our office. If you suffer from some form of dental anxiety, you will find this to be advantageous. Once you leave our office, the recovery will be fast as well, since you are unlikely to have any bleeding, and any swelling will be very minor. By the next day, your gums should look and feel better than they did when you first visited our office.
#4 - You will be protecting your teeth.
If you allow your gum disease to advance, your teeth will be put at risk and you may develop infections that must be addressed or you will eventually lose your teeth. Being proactive now can save you time, money, and effort in the future.
