LASER TREATMENTS DURING PREGNANCY
Laser is safe for all patients to undergo dental procedures,even during pregnancy. It is more important to keep your oral health in check during pregnancy because of the higher risk of developing decay and gum disease.
What happens to your teeth during pregnancy??
Due to hormonal imbalances most of pregnant women suffer from gum disease. In mildest form it is characterized by swollen and bleeding gums.If untreated it may damage the supporting structures of the tooth which is the periodontal disease. This may lead to receding gums,tooth loss,jaw bone weakness and many other irreversible changes.
The bacteria that develops during periodontal disease may have harmful effects on developing fetus.It easily gets into the bloodstream and fluids related to labor progression resulting in preterm birth.
ROLE OF LASER :
In laser therapy,the inflamed gum tissue around the tooth is removed. We can clean under the edge of the gum line to remove excess bacteria and plaque. Our gentle laser cleaning can also reach the roots to remove bacteria and damaged tissues that cause periodontal disease. It also prevents bacteria from travelling to other parts of the body. The area between the gum and teeth regenerate during the healing process. Pregnancy tumor is also commonly seen. In case of discomfort it can be easily removed with laser. Laser helps the best to maintain your oral health during pregnancy.
