Laser Treatments Can Shorten Recovery Times

woman with confident smile and healthy gumsPeriodontal treatment helps manage problems that people with gum disease are likely to experience. At our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice, we use laser technology to provide services that are more precise, that reduce your risk for infection after a procedure, and generally shorten recovery times. We can use lasers to directly fight bacteria and remove tissues that have become infected due to your condition. We can also use this technology to provide solutions when you need gum or jawbone grafting treatment. We should note that in addition to offering advanced treatments with lasers, our periodontal practice provides a range of treatment options, as well as preventive services to help you avoid further difficulties.

You Should Treat Periodontal Disease Like A Serious Issue

If you need to see a specialist about your issues with periodontal disease, or if an infection is interfering with your access to treatment, we can help! While gingivitis is a problem that can be reversed, a more serious infection can become difficult to manage properly, and may lead to unwelcome problems that affect your general and periodontal health. If you learn from your dentist or periodontist that your trouble with gum disease is serious enough to cause long-term complications, services like laser treatment can help you avoid difficulties over time.

Arranging Laser Treatment To Fight Periodontal Bacteria And Remove Unhealthy Tissues

While other practices can depend on manual tools to treat patients affected by a serious infection, we can use lasers to make procedures less invasive. In addition to being a more precise tool for working on unhealthy gums, lasers limit bleeding and remove the need for suturing. They also lead to a shorter and easier recovery period. With our LANAP laser or the REPAIR WaterLase laser, we can remove unhealthy tissues and directly target bacteria buildup on the roots of your teeth.

Other Benefits To Using Lasers To Treat Patients

Lasers also let us tend to the needs of people who are interested in grafting procedures. For both gum grafts and jawbone grafting treatments, an alternative to manual treatment can make a procedure less invasive and easier to recovery from. People who want to restore their gum line can learn about the Pinhole Surgical Technique, which enables us to provide a grafting procedure that does not require suturing. We also provide treatments with lasers when performing jawbone grafting services for individuals who are trying to qualify for dental implant placement.
