Gum Disease Treatment in Dubai

Since we put a lot of foreign matter into our mouths in the form of food, the mouth tends to harbor a lot of bacteria. These bacteria, when come in contact with our oral fluids, form plaque on the teeth, which can be removed through flossing, and teeth brushing. When plaque is not removed, it hardens into tartar, which harbors bacteria and can only be removed by a dentist through professional cleaning. If your teeth continue to harbor the hardened bacteria, they invite a host of gum diseases also known as periodontal diseases. Such types of diseases can be treated through a special gum disease treatment in Dubai also known as periodontal treatment.

What are Periodontal diseases?

Periodontal diseases range from minor inflammations of the gum to serious diseases that can lead to damaged soft tissues and eventually loss of teeth and bone. While many gum diseases develop slowly and can be painless, some forms can cause discomfort or pain. Sometimes, you don’t experience any symptoms until the disease has spread to the bone.

Benefits of Laser Periodontal Treatment 

There are numerous significant benefits of laser gum disease treatment in Dubai. Some of them are mentioned below;

  • Minimally invasive and does not require any cutting.
  • Painless and does not cause major discomfort.
  • Less or no swelling occurs after the treatment.
  • Does not cause any bleeding.
  • Recovery is fast.
  • It is a safe treatment option.

Types of Periodontal Diseases

There are three stages of periodontal diseases and they range from the least severe to the most severe.

  • Gingivitis: When the bacteria stays on your teeth for long, it causes a disease known as gingivitis, which is the inflammation of gums. When you have gingivitis, your gums start bleeding, become swollen, and turn red. This disease can be easily reversed by reverting to stringent dental hygiene like brushing, flossing, and the usual dental cleaning by the dentist. While gingivitis itself doesn’t lead to tooth loss, if left untreated, it can progress to periodontitis, which can lead to loss of teeth and jaw bone tissue.
  • Periodontitis: If you decide to leave gingivitis untreated, it can lead to Periodontitis. While periodontitis does cause gums to pull away and form pockets, it’s important to note that these pockets themselves are a result of the infection and inflammation, not just a cause.
  • Advanced Periodontitis: When Periodontitis is not treated, the plaque develops below the gum line which leads to the breakdown of connective tissues. Advanced periodontitis can lead to tooth loss, but timely and effective treatment can often prevent this outcome.

Causes of Periodontal Diseases 

  • Hormonal changes: Hormonal changes can affect individuals of any gender, though they may have a more pronounced effect on gum health in females during certain life stages such as pregnancy or puberty, can make gums more susceptible to gingivitis
  • Smoking: Smoking, even if it hasn’t caused cancer, can still lead to gum disease. Actually, it is the biggest cause of periodontal diseases according to research.
  • Certain medications: Certain medications that reduce saliva flow can contribute to gum disease. Just in case you did not know, saliva protects our teeth and gums.
  • Diabetes: People who suffer from diabetes are more prone to infections, which include gum diseases.
  • Mental stress: Stress can impact the body’s ability to fight infections. Stress can be a contributing factor to gum disease but is not a direct cause.


  • Bad breath
  • Swollen or tender gums
  • Bleeding gums
  • Loose teeth with gaps
  • Exposure of roots
  • Pus discharge


Here is what you can do to protect yourself from gum diseases;

  • It’s recommended to visit your dentist regularly, at least once every six months.
  • Brush your teeth at least twice a day, and remember to floss on a daily basis, or as recommended by a dental professional.
  • If your diet is poor, ensure it is well-balanced.

Periodontal Gum Treatment

Gum diseases are usually treated through three different techniques which are as follows;

  • Periodontal surgery including bone and tissue grafts, and flap surgery (depending on the severity and specifics of the case).
  • Non-surgical treatments like root planning and scaling that are forms of deep cleaning.
  • Periodontal laser therapy

Periodontal Laser Therapy

Our periodontists use laser treatment to treat gum disease. It is an effective, minimally invasive, and virtually painless treatment for gum problems. Comprising of three simple steps, laser therapy can reduce the advancement of periodontal diseases and saves you from surgery.

Normally, Waterlase laser technology is used to perform the procedure. During the laser treatment for periodontal disease, the dentist removes the affected epithelial lining from the periodontal pockets and the calculus from the surface of roots. After that, the pockets are sealed with the help of a fibrin clot.

If your infection has been diagnosed at an early stage, you will feel less pain. The majority of the patients who got laser therapy have not reported any severe pain during the treatment.
