DR. KHAIRA: I see a lot of patients with gum disease. And the problem that we have is there’s an increasing evidence now a days to suggest that there are links between gum disease and heart disease and strokes and certain cancers and diabetes. Now we’re not 100% sure what that link is. But whatever it is it’s probably not going to be good. So we have to make sure that we are doing everything that we possibly can to help you achieve very, very healthy gums. And we can certainly do that.
One of the things that I’ve started in the UK is the use of lasers in gum disease treatment. The use of laser in a gum disease treatment is designed to help reduce the need for potential surgical treatment. It’s generally a fairly comfortable way of doing it. And it enhances the therapy that we already so for you.
Laser gum disease treatment is designed to enhance the basic gum disease treatment you are already having. We’re actually having some superb results. So particularly with the link now a days between gum disease and all these nasty conditions, we want to make sure that we’re doing everything that we possibly can to make sure that your gums and your teeth are as healthy as they possibly can be.
