Lasers And Gum Grafting Treatment

woman with healthy gums and smileProblems that affect your periodontal health can affect your smile more severely than you might realize. Because one consequence of advanced gum disease is tooth loss, many people who struggle with this condition can require prosthetic treatment over time. Another concern for your smile is gum line recession. Addressing this problem can improve the way you look and offer benefits for your gum health. At our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice, we can make the gum grafting treatment experience easier for patients by using laser technology. Our laser tools allow us to rely on the Pinhole Surgical Technique, something that removes the need for suturing and makes fewer overall changes to your periodontal tissues.

The Pinhole Surgical Technique And Your Smile

As your gum line recedes, your smile can begin to appear less attractive. This change can lead to frustration because it causes asymmetry, and because it makes certain teeth look longer and more awkward. With that said, this problem does more than just negatively affect your smile. You can also have a harder time managing your periodontal health, and you can experience more difficulties with dental sensitivity! Through the Pinhole Surgical Technique, we can carefully manipulate tissues through pin-sized holes, a process that restores your gum line while doing less to actually manipulate the tissues.

Arranging Your Gum Grafting Procedure

Gum grafting treatment restores portions of your gum line by providing healthy tissues and encouraging reattachment to teeth roots. The use of laser technology enables us to move tissues into position without making incisions. This results in less tissue damage and shorter healing times. It also removes the need for us to use sutures, and it lowers your risk for infection after a procedure.

Other Services That Rely On Laser Technology

Through laser technology, we can make many important periodontal treatments easier for patients to undergo. Jawbone grafting is another procedure that benefits from the use of lasers. This procedure helps people who are trying to qualify for dental implant placement. Lasers allow us to more carefully manipulate soft and harder tissues. We also provide laser periodontal services to directly deal with bacteria and encourage the growth of healthy gums.
