Laser Tools Make Periodontal Treatments More Precise

To properly fight periodontal disease, it may be necessary to do work that directly affects your gums. By manipulating these tissues, your Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontist is able to directly attack the bacteria that have built up on the roots of teeth and remove them. Through treatment, we can also remove tissues that are infected so that your body responds by growing healthy tissues to repair the damage. Dr. Kania performs treatments with lasers, which offers several benefits. These tools allow us to operate with greater precision, and they also give patients results in less time because they lead to shorter and easier healing periods.

Do Your Periodontal Problems Call For Laser Treatment?

When patients are still dealing with gingivitis, less invasive measures can effectively fight bacteria buildup and stop problems from continuing. Advanced periodontal treatments are used to fight infections that have grown serious enough to make managing or stopping an infection difficult. If your gums need more than just treatment for gingivitis, it can be important to visit with a periodontist and learn how the infection can be fought. If it is not dealt with properly, the potential for tooth loss and other health concerns is something to contend with. Fortunately, laser treatments let us carefully fight bacteria and stimulate the growth of healthy gums.

How Patients Benefit From The Use Of Lasers Instead Of Manual Tools

Manual tools have often been used to treat patients struggling with advanced periodontal disease. Lasers provide several benefits to this approach that you should know about. Lasers are able to cut more precisely, so your healthy tissues are less affected by a procedure. No suturing has to take place after your gums are treated, and the time it takes to heal is shorter. We actually offer treatment with two different lasers. The ability to choose between our LANAP and REPAIR WaterLase laser will help us adjust treatment so that it properly addresses your needs.

Other Services That Can Be Performed With Lasers

Grafting treatments are often included in work to fight advanced gum disease. A gum grafting procedure will restore a gum line affected by periodontal problems. For patients who need to make sure they can support dental implants, it can be necessary to perform a jawbone grafting procedure. Lasers allow us to make these treatments less invasive, which makes the process easier and the recovery time shorter!
