When periodontal disease begins to cause irreversible damage, the right treatment may involve the careful removal of tissues that show signs of infection. When manipulating or trimming these tissues, your Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontist uses lasers instead of manual tools. By choosing lasers over a scalpel, it is possible to provide a more precise treatment. What this means is that more of your healthy tissues are left alone during a procedure. It can also help lead to a shorter treatment period! We rely on lasers when performing a range of services that help patients restore their periodontal health, as well as treatments to restore gums and jawbone density through grafting.
Using Lasers Instead Of Manual Tools For Periodontal Work
Lasers provide a degree of accuracy and control that manual tools are not able to provide during periodontal care. If you have been reluctant to undergo care, you can be relieved to know that the process takes extra care to minimize discomfort and protect areas of your gums that are in good health. We can use lasers when removing portions of your gums that have been damaged, and we can make cuts when necessary in grafting procedures. There are benefits to this after treatment, too, as you can enjoy a shorter and easier healing period.
The Lasers Used For Periodontal Treatments
We use the LANAP protocol as well as the REPAIR laser for treatments with our patients. Both options provide shorter healing periods, greater precision, and more patient comfort. Depending on the services you undergo, we may use both tools in order to take on your issues with periodontal disease.
Lasers Can Also Lead To Shorter And Easier Healing Periods
Lasers can make treatments more accurate and easier, so you have a better experience in the fight for your periodontal health. Lasers also offer benefits that concern your recovery from treatment. By using lasers instead of a scalpel, less bleeding can occur, and there is no need to suture your gums. Your recovery time can be shorter as a result of this, and because your work is more precise.
