If your issues with poor periodontal health grow too serious, long-term problems can occur. The bacteria that build up can begin destroying tissues that hold teeth in place, and your general health can be impacted by the movement of harmful microbes through your bloodstream. When an infection can no longer be stopped with a scaling and root planing procedure, more involved treatments can be recommended. At our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice, we can recommend services that use lasers to deal with bacteria and infected tissues. Because we have laser technology that we can use to help you, we can make the process of dealing with periodontal disease more comfortable while also shortening your recovery period after treatment!
Using Lasers As Part Of Periodontal Care
In order to fight advanced periodontal problems, it may be necessary to cut into your soft tissues. While this work can be done with physical tools, there are benefits to using lasers for a procedure. Lasers make more precise work possible, which means surrounding tissues are not affected by treatment. Lasers also limit the amount of bleeding that occurs, and even remove the need for suturing! In addition to making the direct treatment of periodontal disease more comfortable, we are able to use lasers to give patients better experiences with grafting treatments.
Lasers Offer More Precision And Easier Recovery Periods
By using lasers to tend to your periodontal health, we can make smaller and more precise cuts. This can make the treatment process more comfortable, and it can limit the amount of work done to complete your care as there will not be a need to do any suturing. Because the work was more precise, less healing is needed, so you can see cosmetic benefits sooner and enjoy a faster recovery!
Lasers Can Also Make Grafting Procedures Easier
With laser tools, we can make patients’ experiences with jawbone grafting and gum grafting more pleasant as well! The Pinhole Surgical Technique we use when restoring a patient’s gum line minimizes the work we do while bringing your gum line back to a more attractive and healthy place. When patients are interested in restoring their smile by receiving dental implants, we can use lasers to make the process of restoring the health and density of their jaw.
