The right tools can make an important job easier to manage. When it comes to treatments that affect your periodontal health, the use of lasers can have benefits for patients during and after their care. During treatment, laser technology can minimize changes to your periodontal tissues by making more precise cuts, limiting tissue damage, and removing the need for sutures to help you recover after a procedure. These benefits during treatment lead to benefits after a procedure is performed, as your recovery can be shorter and easier! At our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice, we offer treatments with multiple laser tools so that we can personalize a patient’s care and help them recover from the potentially serious impact of periodontal disease!
What Untreated Periodontal Disease Can Do To Your Smile And Health
If periodontal disease is left untreated, the consequences can hurt your health and appearance. The harm to your appearance can start with gum line recession, which can negatively change the look of your smile. Over time, tissues that support teeth can be destroyed by periodontal bacteria and leave you with teeth that feel loose. Eventually, these teeth will have to be extracted, or they can fall out on their own! Unchecked bacteria below your gum line can also hurt your overall health by spreading to other parts of your body and creating trouble.
Arranging Periodontal Services With Laser Technology
Laser technology makes work on periodontal tissues more precise, which means healthy tissues are not as likely to be affected by a treatment to fight an advanced infection. Dr. Kania uses both the LANAP laser and the REPAIR WaterLase laser when working to fight patients’ issues with infection. Because treatment with lasers limits tissue damage and bleeding, and because there is no need for suturing to encourage recovery, the process of healing can be easier for you. This means you can feel comfortable sooner, and that you can enjoy cosmetic improvements from your work in less time!
Using Lasers To Improve Patients’ Experiences With Grafting Treatment
Lasers are used in more than just treatments to fight active infections. For both our jawbone grafting treatments and our gum grafting treatments, we use lasers to make care less invasive. These tools help during and after treatment. Like with work to fight periodontal disease, laser-assisted grafting treatments can make recovery times shorter and easier!
