3 Gum Disease Treatments That Benefit From Laser Technology

Why should you care what tools are used during a periodontal procedure? In many instances, you can discover that the option to have lasers used in treatment will produce results in a shorter time while also offering an easier recovery period! At our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice, we actually provide treatment with lasers in several circumstances. This lets us deal with the potentially serious impacts of periodontal disease in a way that minimizes discomfort during care, and also lets patients start enjoying the results of a treatment after a shorter and easier healing period. Because we use more than one type of laser at our office, we can make sure that a procedure has been carefully planned to provide the best results for you.

1. Treatment To Fight Bacteria And Clear Away Infected Tissues

Lasers can be used to directly address problems with infected tissues and accumulated bacteria under the gum line. We can use our LANAP laser or REPAIR WaterLase laser to carefully trim away infected portions of your gums and deal with the bacteria that have accumulated on the roots of your teeth. This process stimulates the growth of new tissues that are not impacted by infection, and it helps you recover from the harmful effects of periodontal disease. By using lasers instead of manual tools, we remove the need to perform any suturing, limit bleeding, and make your healing period shorter and easier.

2. Lasers Can Improve Your Experience With Gum Grafting

We use lasers to make gum grafting procedures easier for our patients, and to ensure that they can enjoy their results in less time. Through the Pinhole Surgical Technique, we can make small holes that are used to manipulate periodontal tissues in order to bring them back to their proper position. This can help you deal with the negative cosmetic impact of gum line recession, and it can make you less likely to have periodontal problems going forward.

3. How Laser Technology Benefits Patients Undergoing A Bone Grafting Procedure

Patients who are trying to recover from periodontal disease may need to plan prosthetic dental work with dental implants. Unfortunately, those plans can be delayed because of jawbone deterioration. We can use lasers to work through soft tissues and access the bone so that it can be augmented, and you can move forward with plans to have implants put in place to support replacement teeth after jawbone grafting.
