Removing Unhealthy Tissues With Lasers

The work needed to address periodontal problems will vary between patients. After all, an infection’s impact on your gums and your overall well-being will change over time if you do not take action and address this matter. When prompt care is delivered, scaling and root planing can remove bacteria before there are complications that require more involved services. However, for someone who does not receive treatment in time, the right procedure may call for the careful removal of diseased gums and ligaments to facilitate a better recovery. At our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice, we can determine if this approach is necessary for you. If it is, we can use laser tools to more carefully remove tissues and bacteria to address your condition!

Addressing Serious Problems Linked To Periodontal Disease

Trouble with periodontal disease can affect you more seriously than you may realize. As bacteria continue to spread and multiply, you can find yourself in need of more than just care to remove harmful microbes gathering on the roots of your teeth. It may be necessary for Dr. Kania to remove unhealthy tissues so that your body can grow healthy tissues in their place. To make this process more comfortable and precise, and to shorten your recovery time, we can perform this service while using laser tools.

How Lasers Make Advanced Care Easier For Patients

By using lasers instead of manual tools to perform periodontal treatment, we can make your procedure more comfortable. Lasers provide more precise work, which means we can preserve more of your healthy tissues while taking care of diseased gums and ligaments to help you recover from your infection. Lasers also help us carefully clear away bacteria that are present on the roots of your teeth and responsible for your problems. After you work is done, you can enjoy a shorter and easier recovery than manual tools allow, and you can see the cosmetic benefits of care sooner! We use both the LANAP laser and REPAIR WaterLase laser at our office, so we can more carefully tailor your procedure to your needs.

Using Lasers To Perform Grafting Treatments

Laser tools allow us to do more than just directly address infections. We are also able to use them when performing grafting procedures. Laser gum grafting treatment that follows the Pinhole Surgical Technique can improve your appearance and periodontal health while removing the need for suturing. We can also use lasers to perform a jawbone grafting procedure, something that can help prepare you for successful dental implant placement.
