How much trouble can poor oral health really cause you? Beyond cavities, what kind of risks do you face when it comes to the condition of your smile? If you have issues with poor periodontal health, you can be vulnerable to more problems than you may expect. In time, an infection can grow serious enough to demand more involved treatment. Without that care, your general health can become harder to manage, as your infection can make managing other conditions difficult. You also have more to worry about when it comes to tooth loss. At our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice, we have experience caring for patients with these issues. Our office can actually provide important services with lasers that can make both your treatment and recovery easier!
Periodontal Problems Can Become Serious When They Are Not Properly Managed
At first, a person experiencing periodontal problems can have issues with gingivitis. This is still something you should take seriously, but the condition can still be reversed, which can return your gums to their state of good health. Unfortunately, some patients will fail to respond in time to this problem. Eventually, you can develop periodontal disease, a more severe infection that is difficult to manage. If it is not being dealt with by a professional, this can raise your risk for tooth loss while making you more likely to have problems with different health conditions.
Arranging Laser Treatment To Manage Periodontal Disease
We use laser technology to tend to patients with periodontal disease. With these tools, we are able to work with more precision and preserve healthy tissues as we remove bacteria and diseased gums. Work with lasers causes less bleeding, and it can even remove the need for suturing. Because this work is more precise, and able to protect healthy tissues, you can find that your recovery period is shorter and easier.
The Role Laser Technology Plays In Grafting Treatments
Laser tools help us when caring for patients who require gum grafting or jawbone grafting services. Procedures to restore your gum line protect you against further issues with infection, and they also lead to real smile improvements. Jawbone grafting procedures help patients who want to successfully undergo dental implant placement. Through the use of lasers during these procedures, we can work with more precision and make recovery periods easier for our patients.
