Targeting Periodontal Bacteria With Lasers

When you are free from active problems, your daily oral hygiene routine can keep your mouth in good health. Unfortunately, periodontal disease can leave you with an infection that needs to be managed by a professional. If it is not dealt with properly, complications from your infection can make you vulnerable to tooth loss, and it can create difficulties with the management of your overall well-being. The good news is that your Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontist can help even when you have more severe problems. When appropriate, we can recommend laser treatments that carefully fight bacteria and remove damaged portions of your gums so that you can grow healthy tissues

Periodontal Disease Can Have A Big Impact On Your Health And Smile

Just how concerned should you be about periodontal disease? If gingivitis is not reversed, an infection can become difficult to manage. Bacteria that gather and spread below your gum line can do damage to tissues that support teeth, leading to them becoming loose. Problems with your gums can also make it more difficult for you to manage your overall health, as your infection may make it more difficult to manage other conditions.

Discussing Laser Treatment To Fight An Active Infection

What can you do when you have difficulties with advanced gum disease? Through the use of our periodontal laser tools, we can carefully trim away diseased gums and fight the bacteria that have gathered on the roots of your teeth. By using lasers instead of manual tools, we can provide a better experience for you both during and after your appointment. Lasers are more precise, so we can better preserve healthy areas of your gums while tending to problem areas. They also minimize bleeding and tissue damage, which can remove the need for suturing. After your procedure has concluded, you can enjoy a faster and easier recovery!

We Can Make Sure You Have The Right Treatment Experience

What kind of treatment do you need to preserve or restore your health? In addition to fighting an active infection, we can use our laser tools to prepare you for prosthetic treatment. A laser jawbone grafting procedure can prepare you for dental implant placement, an important step in replacing teeth if the bone is not strong enough to hold an implant at this point. We can also perform laser gum grafting procedures that offer health and cosmetic benefits.
