How Lasers Affect Periodontal Services

happy dental patientThere are several important periodontal services our Encinitas/San Diego, CA practice can provide when gum disease affects a person’s health and quality of life. As part of our scope of services to fight poor periodontal health, we do offer several procedures that use lasers to tend to patients. By providing laser-based services, we can make treatments available that better preserve healthy tissues and minimize bleeding. As a result, your procedure can be more comfortable than you expect, and you can enjoy a shorter and easier recovery period! Care with these advanced tools can play an important part in addressing infections directly, and in providing grafting procedures when needed.

Lasers Offer More Precision During Treatment

One benefit to choosing laser treatment over services that still rely on manual tools is that a procedure with this technology can provide more precise care. Because we can more carefully manipulate your tissues, we can protect more of your healthy gums from becoming damaged. This does more than just protect areas that we do not wish to harm. More careful cutting means shorter and easier healing time. We can even perform procedures without the need to provide sutures after your work is done!

Using Lasers To Remove Bacteria That Have Gathered On The Roots Of Teeth

Periodontal disease creates serious problems for a person’s well-being. Unfortunately, when bacteria gather over time, the issue can become difficult to manage with preventive services alone. One option for treatment is to our LANAP or REPAIR WaterLase tools to remove bacteria from the roots of your teeth. We can do this and also remove unhealthy tissues to encourage growth.

We Also Use Lasers When Performing Grafting Treatments

Gum grafting treatment and jawbone grafting treatment are both procedures that can restore your smile in important ways. With your jawbone grafting treatment, we can prepare you for dental implant placement by ensuring your jawbone is ready to support your implant or implants. While this is not always needed, it can be an important step in your treatment if you have not addressed tooth loss for an extended period of time and lost bone density as a result.

A gum grafting procedure can offer cosmetic benefits, and it can help you preserve healthy tissues over time. Through the Pinhole Surgical Technique, we can move forward with this care while avoiding sutures and minimizing tissue changes overall.
