Should you be more concerned about your periodontal health? If you have struggled with gum disease in the past, or if you have been warned by your dentist about the current condition of your gums, you should be alarmed. If nothing is done, an infection can lead to tissue damage that can cause tooth loss. It is also possible for the bacteria attacking your gums to travel and affect your general health. Our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontist can provide modern treatments with lasers to help patients recover. With these services, we can restore healthy tissues while also lowering your risk for future complications.
Why Is Treatment Sometimes Needed To Control Gum Disease?
Preventive care at home and professional periodontal cleanings can put a stop to gingivitis before your condition becomes hard to manage. Unfortunately, an infection can be more difficult to manage if you have developed periodontal disease. Treatment to remove infected tissues can be beneficial because it can remove bacteria and also encourage healthy growth.
Benefits To Laser Treatment Over Work With A Scalpel
While some practices can rely on manual tools to perform periodontal treatments, we provide our patients with services that rely on lasers. Laser treatments can provide more precise care, and it can encourage faster healing. Patients who elect to undergo periodontal care with lasers can enjoy the following advantages:
- Treatment can limit bleeding and eliminate the need for sutures
- More precise care preserves more of your healthy periodontal tissues
- You can recover in less time, and enjoy a more comfortable procedure
- You can be less likely to have future issues with infection
What Can Happen If Periodontal Problems Are Ignored?
Our practice can help patients restore their dental and periodontal health with a range of services that rely on laser technology. In addition to fighting the effects of periodontal disease, we can use lasers to improve your experience with jawbone grafting and gum grafting. Without proper care, you can be susceptible to tissue damage that causes attachment loss. This means you are more likely to experience tooth loss, which can be understandably alarming. You can also be susceptible to general health issues, and may have a difficult time managing ongoing health problems you are already trying to control.
