Removing Periodontal Bacteria With Laser Tools

Fighting oral bacteria on a daily basis will protect you against the movement of harmful microbes below your gum line. When those bacteria do make their way down to the roots of your teeth, they cause troubling infections that can ultimately affect your appearance and general health in ways that can surprise you. For example, someone who develops problems with periodontal disease can struggle to manage problems with diabetes! Advanced periodontal problems also threaten your dental health directly by destroying the tissues that keep teeth in place. With this information, you can understand why successfully managing an infection benefits you. At our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice, we can perform work with laser tools to carefully access and remove the bacteria on your teeth roots. In addition to clearing away unwelcome microbes, treatment will encourage the new growth of healthy, uninfected tissues!

Problems Associated With Periodontal Disease

There are a variety of problems that are linked to periodontal disease, an advanced form of gingivitis that can create long-term health difficulties. As gum tissues and hard tissues supporting teeth are destroyed, teeth become loose and vulnerable to be lost. You also face potential difficulties because of periodontal disease. An unmanaged condition can potentially raise your risk for heart troubles, and it can interfere with your management of other conditions.

Arranging Periodontal Treatment With Lasers

While manual tools can be used to fight periodontal disease, these tools can make procedures more invasive, they can call for longer recovery times, and they require suturing of your periodontal tissues to help you heal. With laser technology, Dr. Kania is able to more carefully access areas where bacteria have gathered to remove these deposits. The greater precision of lasers makes it easier to preserve surrounding healthy gum tissues, and these tools manage to limit bleeding and remove the need for sutures. We offer multiple treatment options, as we offer care with our LANAP laser as well as REPAIR WaterLase laser technology.

Other Services We Offer That Use Lasers

Grafting procedures can also be easier and more comfortable when laser tools are used. One cosmetic concern associated with periodontal disease is gum line recession. We can provide gum grafting treatment in the form of the Pinhole Surgical Technique, which minimizes cuts and encourages shorter and easier healing. We can also use lasers when performing jawbone grafting procedures, which help us make the process of preparing a patient for dental implant placement after tooth loss easier.
