Dr. Marzieh Oghabian Now Offers Modern Laser Surgery to Treat Gum Disease in Pittsburg, CA

Pittsburg, California (EastBayDaily) — Dr. Marzieh Oghabian is now certified to offer WaterLase iPlus™ laser gum surgery at her practice in Pittsburg, CA. This laser gum disease treatment does not cause pain and trauma that is common with traditional procedures. Dr. Oghabian uses a laser to target diseased tissue and bacteria, so there is no need for cutting and stitches. The minimally invasive nature of the procedure encourages quick healing with minimal discomfort.

Three out of four adults in the U.S. admit to feeling anxiety about dental visits. Tools such as drills, scalpels and other sharp instruments frequently cause discomfort and pain, leading many people to procrastinate about scheduling appointments. When an individual develops infection below the gum line, putting off treatment can have disastrous results. Pus pockets form around tooth roots and pull the gums away, creating large gaps and weakening supporting structures of the teeth, which may loosen and fall out. Scientists have recently discovered that there is a link between gum disease and other health issues such as heart disease, diabetes and some forms of cancer. This may be due to oral bacteria entering the bloodstream from infected gums.

Dr. Oghabian’s concern over the serious threat of gum disease has led her to adopt WaterLase iPlus™ laser gum surgery to provide her patients with a less traumatic gum disease treatment in Pittsburg, CA. Traditional procedures require a periodontist to cut the gums and peel them away from the teeth to access the infected area and clean it. This can damage healthy tissue and frequently prevents the gums from fully reattaching, leading to gum recession. The WaterLase technology uses a laser wavelength to remove diseased tissue below the gum line without incisions or sutures. A water spray provides cooling during the procedure to promote comfort. Healthy tissues are not harmed by the surgery and the laser stimulates new bone growth, so the gums are much more likely to return to their original positions.

No one in Pittsburg, CA needs to fear gum disease treatment at Dr. Oghabian’s practice. Her website provides more information about WaterLase iPlus™ laser gum surgery and other advanced treatment options she provides.
