How Lasers Manage Periodontal Problems

Are you taking issues with your periodontal health seriously? Ignoring warnings about gum disease, or letting signs of an infection go unchecked, can lead to consequences like tooth loss. When not managed, periodontal disease can also have a negative effect on your general health! The good news is that an infection can be managed. At our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice, we rely on laser technology to tend to problems with poor gum health. We can use advanced technology to both fight periodontal bacteria and remove tissues that have been damaged due to infection. Lasers also help us perform grafting procedures that are less invasive and boast shorter healing times.

Why You Should Take Issues With Periodontal Disease Seriously

In time, a problem with periodontal disease can cause you to lose teeth, it can interfere with your general health, and it can even make addressing tooth loss more difficult. The initial stage of an infection, gingivitis, can be managed through preventive care – in fact, Dr. Kania can provide preventive services for patients worried about their gums. However, a more serious problem can make more involved care necessary if you want to avoid complications. At a consultation, we can speak to you about your condition and what it might take to effectively manage it. When called for, we can recommend services that use lasers to fight infections and encourage the growth of healthy tissues.

Arranging Treatment That Relies On Laser Technology

Through the use of laser technology, our practice can manipulate soft tissues and even the harder tissues that surround your teeth. We can perform beneficial services that remove harmful microbes that are accumulating on your roots, and we can encourage healthy tissue growth by removing damaged areas of your gums.

Using Laser Treatments To Address Smile Concerns

The Pinhole Surgical Technique enables us to perform a gum grafting procedure with laser tools, and without the need for suturing. By providing this care, we can address tissue recession – an unsightly issue often connected to periodontal disease – and improve your appearance and health. A jawbone grafting treatment performed with laser technology can help someone who is trying to qualify for prosthetic work with dental implants.
