Using Laser Tools In Periodontal Treatment

If you struggle with periodontal disease, proper treatment can be more important than you realize. A person whose condition is not managed effectively is vulnerable to losing teeth, and they can even experience higher risks for other health issues, including heart disease! At our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice, we offer several treatment approaches for those affected by this condition. One advantage to treatment at our office is that patients can undergo procedures that rely on laser technology. Periodontal treatments with lasers can preserve more of your healthy tissues, remove the need for suturing after a procedure, and shorten your recovery time!

Periodontal Disease Can Create Serious Difficulties

When you recognize the threat of periodontal disease, it can be easy to see why you should make treatment a priority. Over time, a person with gum disease can lose teeth as bacteria gradually destroy the tissues that support them. Bacteria beneath your gums can also affect your general health by interfering with your management of other conditions, such as diabetes. This problem can even raise your risk for heart troubles!

How Lasers Address Problems With Your Gums

With laser tools like our LANAP laser and REPAIR WaterLase laser, we can carefully treat unhealthy gums in order to fight bacteria and remove diseased tissues. Both lasers make it possible for us to interact with your gums in a more precise manner. What this means is that this technology can do a better job preserving healthy tissues than manual tools like scalpels. Another benefit is that lasers limit bleeding, and make it possible to complete a procedure without the need for suturing. After work is done, you can see results sooner and enjoy a shorter recovery period.

Laser Treatment And Implant Dentistry

Laser jawbone grafting treatment is a procedure we may recommend before we can approve you for dental implant placement. Over time, a person who has lost teeth can begin to lose mass in their jaw, as they no longer have their roots present to stimulate the bone. By using lasers to perform your grafting procedure, we can work more precisely and shorten your recovery time, which means you do not have to wait as long to continue the process of restoring your full smile!
