When you have problems with gingivitis, your daily routine and a trip to your dentist for routine care can help. Unfortunately, problems with poor periodontal health can worsen in time if you do not respond to an infection in time. Periodontal disease can destroy the tissues that support your teeth, leading to tooth loss, and you can also experience general health issues because of your condition. At our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice, we can help patients who are trying to address advanced problems with periodontal disease. To fight these problems, we can recommend laser treatment to address bacteria and infected tissues that are putting your smile and general health in jeopardy!
Poor Periodontal Health Can Become A Significant Concern
You might not realize just how serious problems with gum disease can become if it is not addressed in time. Periodontal disease is difficult to control, and it can do serious damage to the tissues that support your teeth. The potential movement of bacteria beneath your gums can also cause you to suffer problems with your overall well-being. Effectively managing this condition can call for more involved work to clear away infected tissues as well as bacteria. While other practices rely on manual tools to perform this work, we use lasers to perform more precise cuts and make recovery easier.
How Lasers Target And Remove Bacteria And Infected Tissues
We have multiple laser tools that we can use to effectively clear away tissues that are in poor health, as well as the bacteria responsible for your infection. The procedure will see your periodontist carefully address an area where an infection has affected your health. In addition to directly targeting the microbes that have gathered on the roots of your teeth, your procedure will clear away unhealthy gum tissues. After this occurs, you will grow healthy tissues as you heal.
Lasers Also Help When Patients Undergo Grafting Procedures
Grafting procedures call for cuts to your periodontal tissues. In both jawbone grafting and gum grafting, we can use lasers to minimize the impact of those cuts, and also to encourage faster healing. Gum grafting procedures are often needed when people have periodontal problems as they can lead to the recession of the gum line. A jawbone grafting procedure helps individuals who need to address deterioration of the bone so that they can have a dental implant put in place.
