The goal of treating any oral health concern isn’t just to address the problem at hand, but also to preserve the rest of your long-term oral and periodontal health. In the case of chronic concerns like periodontal disease, that largely requires the use of technology and expert techniques to ensure minimally invasive treatment for complex concerns. At our office, the use of various laser technologies helps us personalize minimally invasive periodontal treatment plans for patients who exhibit a wide range of periodontal health concerns.
The nature of periodontal disease
Periodontal disease occurs in stages, and treatment for it depends on several different factors, including its specific severity. In all cases of periodontal disease, however, the most important goal is to preserve as much healthy periodontal tissue as possible by stopping the disease’s progression. In more severe cases, this may require surgical treatment to remove minimal amounts of tissue that have become significantly compromised by the disease, allowing healthy tissues to heal. The extent of this treatment depends on the severity of your periodontal disease, and its long-term success largely depends on keeping your treatment as minimally invasive as possible.
Why conservative treatment matters
Your healthy periodontal tissues serve several important roles in your oral health, including protecting and helping to support your teeth roots. In the quest to control and manage your periodontal disease, the ability to preserve as much of your healthy periodontal tissues as possible is essential to preserving the rest of your healthy, natural smile. For this reason, it’s important to design expert periodontal treatment that emphasizes conservative treatment to help improve your long-term periodontal health.
Using lasers to make treatment minimally invasive
For a number of different periodontal treatment options, surgery is an essential part of removing the source of periodontal disease and allowing your periodontal tissues to heal. The use of lasers instead of traditional scalpels is often preferable due to the enhanced level of precision and comfort they provide. Given the personalized nature of periodontal disease and appropriate periodontal treatment, this enhanced precision helps ensure maximum preservation of your healthy gums and oral tissues, as well as optimal results of your personalized treatment plan.
