While grafting procedures are not necessary at all times for patients with periodontal disease, they are can be important in some circumstances. Poor periodontal health can lead to the recession of your gum tissues, which can actually make you more susceptible to infections over time. If your issues with periodontal disease include tooth loss, jawbone deterioration may have taken place and affected your candidacy for treatment with dental implants. Our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice is prepared to help you deal with these effects. When performing jawbone grafting and gum grafting treatments, we rely on lasers to do more precise work, and to give patients shorter and easier healing periods!
How Grafting Fits Into Periodontal Treatment
Jawbone grafting treatments can be necessary in order to provide more support for a dental implant. Without the appropriate density, it will be difficult for an implant to stay in position and keep a tooth secure. Gum grafting procedures address cosmetic concerns around gum line recession, and they also help people stay safe against future infections by making a person more naturally resistant to them.
Using Lasers To Restore Your Gum Line Or Jawbone
By using lasers during your grafting procedure, we can do more precise work, limiting tissue damage and making your recovery easier. With the Pinhole Surgical Technique, we are able to limit bleeding, cut the need for any suturing of your tissues, and ensure that you see positive results from treatment sooner. This process relies on pin-sized holes that help us carefully manipulate tissues into position, producing impressive results with minimal changes to your tissues.
With lasers, we are able to more carefully manipulate the tissues in front of your jawbone, which helps to shorten your recovery time. We can also use lasers to carefully manipulate harder tissues in your jaw. By doing so, we can make your recovery shorter and easier, which means you can move forward with plans to restore your smile!
Laser Treatment Offers Shorter Recovery Periods
When lasers are used in periodontal procedures, it becomes possible to make smaller, more accurate cuts to tissues, limit bleeding, and speed up your recovery. Thanks to the different laser tools available at our practice, we can find ways to address the serious effects of periodontal disease in ways that make you more comfortable during and after care! In addition to helping us with grafting treatments, lasers allow us to carefully remove infected tissues and encourage healthy gum growth.
