3 Benefits To Using Lasers During Periodontal Services

Problems with periodontal disease should not be taken lightly. Without proper management, the bacteria that are spreading below your gum line can destroy tissues that support your teeth, and they can also create new issues for your well-being by spreading to different areas of your body. The work to address a serious infection can sometimes demand work that directly affects your periodontal tissues. Fortunately, this work can be made less invasive, and more comfortable, when laser technology is used instead of manual tools. Our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice relies on lasers during many procedures that we perform. Because of this, we can provide better experiences in the office as well as easier recovery periods for patients!

1. Lasers Can Make More Precise Cuts Than Manual Tools

With both our LANAP and REPAIR laser technology, Dr. Kania can provide care with more precision than is possible with manual tools. When we take care to remove infected tissues and access the roots of teeth to fight bacteria, this improved accuracy limits damage to surrounding healthy tissues. These tools also make the necessary tissue work during a jawbone grafting or gum grafting procedure more precise, so the amount of work that is ultimately done is limited.

2. Lasers Help Limit Bleeding And Reduce Discomfort During Treatment

With lasers, it is actually possible to limit any bleeding that occurs during a more involved periodontal procedure. With tools that can stop bleeding and limit tissue damage, we can actually remove the need to suture tissues after treatment. Because of this, you can leave our office in better comfort, and with less concern about what your recovery is going to be like.

3. Treatment With Lasers Can Lead To Faster Cosmetic Improvements After Grafting

With their ability to limit tissue damage and reduce bleeding, a treatment with laser tools can ultimately make recovery periods shorter and easier for patients. In addition to making the time after your treatment more comfortable, this means you can see your results in less time. The goal when we perform periodontal treatment is to fight a serious infection, prevent complications, and give you back your smile. When you have a shorter healing period, you can start to see positive developments sooner!
