Laser Tools And Your Periodontal Health

There are times when more than preventive services are needed to manage problems with a patient’s periodontal health. As an infection worsens, it can have more severe consequences and become harder to control. At our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice, we can provide treatment options for those who hope to control a more serious problem. Laser tools make it possible for us to resolve difficulties with infections, even when periodontal disease is more advanced. By using lasers instead of manual tools, we can make services more comfortable by minimizing changes to your healthy tissues and shortening your recovery period.

Are Your Periodontal Problems Serious Enough To Call For Laser Treatment?

If you take care of your gums in time, you can stop gingivitis from worsening, effectively preventing the more severe effects of periodontal disease from impacting you. Unfortunately, not everyone tends to this problem in time, and that can lead to more problems. Your infection can become difficult to manage, and it can start to impact your general health by raising your risk for heart disease and making other conditions more difficult to control. The damage to your periodontal tissues that stems from an infection can lead to tooth loss. When preventive care will not help your gums return to good health, we can review your options for treatment with laser tools.

Using Laser Tools To Address A Severe Infection

With our laser tools, we can carefully tend to infected tissues and help manage your periodontal disease. Treatment can carefully trim away diseased gums and also remove the bacteria that have gathered on the roots of your teeth. The removal of unhealthy tissues leads to new tissue growth, replacing what was lost with healthy gums. By using lasers instead of manual tools for this procedure, we can more carefully target areas that are infected, and we can eliminate the need for sutures to encourage healing. We can also shorten the time you need to recover!

How Laser Tools Assist Us In Performing Gum Grafting Treatments

Gum line recession is an issue that many people can experience. Even if it happens because of something other than gum disease, it can make you more likely to experience issues with infections later in life. At our office, we can resolve these difficulties by providing a Pinhole gum grafting procedure that uses lasers to make the process more comfortable. The pinhole process lets us carefully manipulate the tissues back into place in a less invasive fashion.
