Your appearance can change as a consequence of poor periodontal health. Many people will see their gum tissues recede, something that can negatively affect their smile as well as their ability to protect these tissues against bacteria. At our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice, we can offer services to help patients deal with the different effects of periodontal disease. Because we use laser tools to make procedures less invasive, we can minimize changes to healthy tissues and even give you a shorter recovery period after a problem like tissue recession is addressed. For your treatment, we can use the Pinhole Surgical Technique to carefully move your gums without the need for suturing.
Has Gum Line Recession Hurt Your Appearance?
As gum tissues recede, they reveal portions of our teeth that are more sensitive, which can lead to discomfort. This exposure can also make your smile look awkward and less attractive. This recession is not always caused by gum disease, but it does make someone more vulnerable to an infection. Fortunately, patients at our practice have access to grafting treatment that relies on the Pinhole Surgical Technique, a method of moving tissues that relies on small, pin-like holes that are used to manipulate tissues, rather than cutting and suturing to modify a patient’s gums.
Using Lasers To Provide A Less Invasive Grafting Treatment
We use lasers during several periodontal procedures, including grafting treatments. For gum grafting, lasers let us move forward with a less invasive procedure that can have less impact on your periodontal tissues, require less care after a procedure, and even heal in a shorter time. Lasers also reduce your chances of experiencing complications after work is finished.
Other Services That Rely On Laser Technology
Laser tools make more than just gum and jawbone grafting services more comfortable for patients. They also allow us to deal directly with periodontal disease by removing bacteria and clearing away diseased tissues. When manual tools are used, this process can call for suturing to help with healing, and your recovery period can be longer. After an evaluation, we can determine if this work is necessary, or if there is still time to reverse or control an infection through preventive periodontal care.
