Healing After Laser Periodontal Treatment

Your experience during periodontal treatment is important, and so is your time after your procedure concludes. For those who have problems with periodontal disease, more involved treatments can be needed to control the spread of bacteria and address tissues damage. Our Encinitas/San Diego, CA dentist’s office uses laser tools to make recovery from our procedures faster and easier. Lasers make more precise work possible, they remove the need for suturing, and they can improve your experience with recovery. In addition to fighting an active infection with laser tools, we can provide grafting treatments to take on problems stemming from your infection.

What Will Your Experience With Recovery From Treatment Be Like?

Laser treatment can help you manage a potentially serious issue with your well-being. When you suffer from periodontal disease, bacteria that gather under your gums can destroy tissues and ligaments that support teeth. When those microbes enter your blood stream, they can affect your general health. During treatment, we can remove bacteria as well as diseased gums. That tissue removal triggers the start of the healing process, which will see your body regrow healthy gums. By using lasers, we can preserve more of the healthy tissues surrounding an area of concern. We can also limit bleeding and remove the need for suturing, which leads to faster and easier healing.

Using Lasers To Tend To Your Periodontal Health

We can use either our LANAP laser or our REPAIR WaterLase laser to tend to problems with your periodontal health. Fighting the bacteria on the roots of your teeth and removing diseased gums will afford you a chance to heal and recover from the effects of your infection. Because we use lasers instead of manual tools, we can make the experience itself more comfortable, and you can see results in less time thanks to your easier healing period.

Other Roles Lasers Can Play In Addressing The Impact Of Periodontal Disease

Lasers can also help with problems like gum line recession and jawbone deterioration. Lasers let us perform gum grafting treatment without the need for suturing. At our office, we rely on the Pinhole Surgical Technique to make this experience less invasive while still delivering positive results. For those who need work done to enjoy a successful dental implant placement, we can provide jawbone grafting treatment. Our approach shortens your recovery time, which means you can proceed with plans to restore your full smile in less time.
