When periodontal disease is not addressed, the toll it takes on a person’s smile can be considerable. As bacteria cause attachment loss, teeth can start to loosen, and eventually become lost. The microbes responsible for your poor gum health can also create new difficulties for you by moving to other parts of your body. Our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice is prepared to deal with the consequences of periodontal disease. We offer treatments to remove damaged tissues and encourage healthy growth, as well as services to restore the size and health of your jawbone and gum tissues. Because we rely on lasers when treating patients, we are able to minimize any changes to healthy tissues. We can also provide services that lead to faster and easier healing!
The Impact Of Periodontal Disease Should Not Be Ignored
If you are ignoring the signs of periodontal disease, you are making yourself vulnerable to several difficult complications. By destroying soft tissues and jawbone tissues surrounding teeth, the condition weakens their support until they are lost, or until they must be extracted. Bacteria that are present beneath your gums can actually affect different parts of your body by traveling through your bloodstream. When that movement occurs, it can make it harder for you to manage other health issues, and it may lead to increased risks for heart disease!
Using Lasers Instead Of Manual Tools For Your Treatment
When treating patients with periodontal disease, Dr. Kania relies on laser technology for work manipulating soft tissues. This means that jawbone grafting and gum grafting procedures, as well as direct work to remove infected tissues, can be done while preserving more of your healthy gums. The cuts made by lasers cause less bleeding, and they do not require sutures. In addition to limiting blood loss, any cuts made are ultimately smaller, as lasers are more precise than work with a scalpel.
Lasers Lead To Shorter And Easier Recovery After Treatment!
Because lasers provide more precision in work with your soft tissues, and limit the size of any cuts made, the recovery experience is an easier one. While manual periodontal care can leave you with sutures and a longer healing period, you can see cosmetic and health benefits of care sooner after laser treatment!
