The toll periodontal disease can take on your smile and health may be more severe than you currently believe. Did you know that tooth loss in adults is more often connected to periodontal problems than any other issue? Bacteria that gather beneath your gum line will cause harm to the tissues holding your teeth in position, loosening them or even causing them to be lost. Your infection also puts your general health at risk, as bacteria that move through your bloodstream can affect other parts of your body. At our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice, we rely on treatment techniques featuring soft tissues lasers to fight the effects of periodontal disease. With the right procedure, we can help you regrow healthy tissues, and we can repair damages done to your gums and jawbone.
How Laser Technology Affects Your Treatment Options
By using lasers instead of manual tools during procedures, our patients can enjoy more precise work as well as shorter, easier healing times. Lasers can make smaller, more accurate incisions than scalpels, which limits the damage to your tissues. They also limit bleeding and remove the need for suturing. As a result, patients can have an easier time during treatment and after, and they can also see improvements in less time. To make sure that we offer the right treatment experience for you, our practice actually relies on LANAP as well as REPAIR laser treatment.
Using Lasers To Directly Target Unhealthy Tissues
With lasers, we are able to carefully trim away tissues that have become infected. This process stimulates new growth, effectively replacing diseased portions of your gums with new periodontal tissues that are healthy. The lasers will also help you by destroying the bacteria that are causing your infection. This can lead to an exciting recovery, and help you avoid the potentially serious consequences of unchecked periodontal disease.
The Role Lasers Play In Grafting Procedures
By using lasers to manipulate tissues during gum grafting treatments and jawbone grafting procedures, we can make your care less invasive. The Pinhole Surgical Technique actually enables us to restore a person’s gum line with minimal cuts and no sutures. For a jawbone grafting procedure, we can access hard tissues with the use of lasers and restore the bone in a way that has a shorter recovery time.
