As you learn about the effects of periodontal disease, you can experience understandable feelings of alarm. After all, this infection can interfere with your ability to manage other health conditions, make you vulnerable to tooth loss, and even adversely affect your risk for heart disease and other problems! Our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice is prepared to work with people who want to protect themselves against the harm that periodontal disease can do. One thing we can do is recommend laser-based services to remove the bacteria that have accumulated below your gum line. Thanks to our use of more than one type of periodontal laser, we can provide a more personalized approach to your treatment!
We Can Take Your Individual Needs And Concerns Into Account When Planning Laser Periodontal Treatment
Periodontal treatment with lasers offers key advantages over procedures with manual tools. When doing work that directly affects your gums, lasers are more precise, and that means your healthy surrounding tissues are better protected. These tools also limit bleeding, and remove the need for suturing at the end of a procedure. Patients who undergo laser treatments can heal in less time, and see the benefits of their treatments sooner.
Our LANAP And REPAIR WaterLase Lasers
We use both a LANAP and REPAIR WaterLase laser for procedures to address concerns about periodontal disease. Both of these lasers let us carefully modify tissues when treating an area affected by infection. Based on your needs and concerns, we can determine which laser might be based for delivering care for you. With both options, we can target harmful bacteria while minimizing changes to your gums, protecting healthy tissues, and shortening your recovery period!
Lasers Also Help Us Care For Patients Who Need Grafting Treatments
Laser technology lets us do more than just fight active infections. When we meet with patients, we can discuss the benefits of laser technology in both gum grafting and jawbone grafting treatment. Both of these services can be important for helping individuals recover from troubles associated with gum disease. Gum grafting treatments address the change in your gum line that can occur due to infection. With lasers, we remove the need for cutting tissues with scalpels and using sutures, as we instead rely on the Pinhole Surgical Technique to provide care. Jawbone grafting treatment provides more bone density, which can be important before you undergo dental implant placement.
