Are you ready to receive a dental implant and restore your full smile? While you may be eager to start treatment and address tooth loss, problems with jawbone deterioration may impact your ability to undergo implant placement. Fortunately, this is something that your Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontist can help you address! Our practice performs jawbone grafting treatments with laser tools. Lasers offer several benefits over using manual tools to manipulate your gums, teeth roots, and jawbone structure. A more precise treatment can be followed by a shorter and easier recovery, which means you will have an easier time progressing from your grafting procedure to receiving your implant!
Why Jawbone Deterioration Is A Concern For People With Missing Teeth
After you lose teeth, you can experience several concerning issues. One issue is jawbone deterioration. Why does this problem follow tooth loss? The absence of a tooth means the absence of its roots, and that means less stimulation in your jawbone when you bite and chew food. Stimulation matters because it tells your body to move nutrients to the roots through the jawbone. Without it, the bone can gradually lose mass, a problem that affects your health as well as your appearance.
We Use Laser Tools To Improve Your Experience With Jawbone Grafting
Our office relies on laser tools to perform jawbone grafting treatments as well as other periodontal treatments. Lasers make more precise cuts than manual tools, which means we can minimize harm to tissues that lead to shorter and easier recovery periods. In addition to using laser tools to modify your gums, we can use lasers when performing treatment on harder tissues, including your jawbone. These tools help prepare you for your graft, and they can ultimately make this treatment experience less invasive.
Lasers Also Improve Patient Experience With Gum Grafting Treatment
Gum grafting treatment is another kind of grafting procedure patients sometimes require when they are affected by poor periodontal health. Just as infections can damage the tissues surrounding teeth, which leads to losses, they can also affect you by changing your gum line. Restorative treatment can improve the way you look, and it can make you more comfortable with your smile. Our use of the Pinhole Surgical Technique removes the need for sutures and minimizes the overall work we have to do to your gum tissues.
