If you are affected by periodontal disease, the consequences of letting the problem go untreated can be serious. One reason for this is that tooth loss is caused by gum disease more often than by any other issue. Another is that when your infection is not managed, you can experience further health issues after bacteria attacking your gums spread to different parts of your body. At our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice, we are able to help patients fight an infection. Thanks to the periodontal lasers we use for treatments, we can improve your experience with treatment by making it more accurate, and by shortening your healing time.
Removing Infected Tissues Can Help You Recover From Periodontal Disease
By carefully trimming damaged tissues, we can encourage a healing process that leads to the growth of new, healthier tissues that are not infected. We use lasers when performing this work on your gums because we are able to make more precise cuts than work with manual tools can allow. Laser treatment can also lead to faster recovery times, and no need for suturing after cuts are made!
Your Experience With Laser Periodontal Treatment
We use multiple lasers for our treatments. In addition to LANAP, we can perform work with REPAIR periodontal treatments. When performing work that involves the removal of soft tissues, patients can be happy to know that we can target the specific areas where infection is a concern, and limit any interference with healthy tissues. Lasers also limit the amount of bleeding that can occur during treatment, while shortening treatment time. What this means is that you can enjoy a more comfortable experience during and after treatment!
Lasers Can Also Help With Grafting Procedures
In addition to using lasers to help patients fight periodontal disease, we can use them to aid in grafting procedures. Jawbone grafting is sometimes performed to help address the deterioration of bone that can occur due to gum disease, particularly when a patient has suffered tooth loss. With this procedure, we can also make you a better candidate for dental implant placement. We can also use lasers to provide a more accurate and patient-friendly gum grafting procedure. Gum grafting can restore your gum line if it has receded due to your infection.
