Gum disease is a condition that grows progressively worse over time. Fortunately, it is an infection that can be reversed if it is addressed in its early stage. However, if you develop problems with more severe periodontal disease, bacteria can infect tissues and ligaments, cause larger periodontal pockets to open between gums and teeth, and become more difficult to control. At our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice, we are prepared to help individuals who experience this difficulty. If preventive care is no longer an option, we can discuss more involved procedures that can help. Because our office has access to laser technology, we can actually take on periodontal disease with more precision, which can lead to more comfort and easier recovery!
Careful Tissue Removal Can Lead To The Growth Of Healthy Gums And Ligaments
Through laser periodontal treatment, we can remove bacteria that have gathered under your gums, and we can remove diseased tissues to stimulate healthy growth. As your body repairs the damage, you will grow back gum tissues and ligaments that are not diseased, which helps you return your smile to a healthier state.
Using Lasers Instead Of Manual Tools
Many practices will rely on manual tools like scalpels to perform treatments on patients who require care for periodontal disease. Because Dr. Kania performs services with laser technology, our patients can have an easier time with the care itself, and they can also have a shorter and more comfortable recovery! Lasers provide greater precision during care, which minimizes damage to tissues. They also reduce bleeding, plus they remove the need for suturing to aid in proper recovery.
We Plan Treatments Based On Patients’ Conditions
After evaluating your smile, we can determine what kind of care is right for you. Hopefully, there will still be time to rely on preventive periodontal care. If this is no longer the case, we can discuss more involved services to fight bacteria and remove diseased tissues. In addition to fighting an infection directly, we can tend to the effects of your infection by providing a gum grafting or jawbone grafting procedure. We also rely on laser technology for these services, which can provide better experiences for patients.
