Learning About Laser Periodontal Care

There is time to treat a periodontal infection before complications start to affect your overall health. Gingivitis is a problem that is reversible, meaning your gums can return to their healthy state if you act in time to address the matter. However, when you deal with periodontal disease, managing the problem can call for more involved services. One thing our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice does to help patients with more serious problems is provide treatments with laser tools. This advanced technology can provide beneficial protection for people with advanced infections while minimizing changes to healthy tissues, and while shortening recovery times!

Why The Tools Your Periodontist Uses Matters

Why should you be concerned over whether your treatment involves manual or laser tools? With advanced soft tissue lasers, we can address serious infections in a way that makes your care more comfortable, as we can make more precise cuts to tissues, reduce bleeding, and remove the need for sutures. Lasers also lead to shorter recovery times, which means you start enjoying the benefits of laser periodontal care sooner than you may think possible!

Scheduling Treatment To Fight Periodontal Disease

For patients who have issues with periodontal disease, proper care can offer important protection. Without the right support, your infection can make you vulnerable to tooth loss, and it can disrupt your efforts to manage other health conditions. After evaluating you and determining this kind of care is necessary, we can provide periodontal services with our LANAP or REPAIR WaterLase laser. Because we have more than one tool we can work with, we can personalize treatment to make sure you have the right treatment experience.

How Laser Tools Impact Grafting Procedures

We can also rely on laser technology when patients come to us for jawbone or gum grafting treatments. As with other services that depend on these tools, grafting procedures that use lasers can lead to results with more conservative work, and they can produce results in less time. While gum grafting work can help you improve your appearance and oral health when you have poor periodontal health, jawbone grafting work can be recommended when you are trying to qualify for dental implant placement.
