Your experience during a periodontal treatment is certainly important, but you should also feel comfortable after a procedure concludes. For more involved treatments in particular, you can require recovery time to fully heal from work to manage gum disease. Because our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice uses laser tools when providing these services, our patients can have easier and shorter recovery periods. These tools are even capable of minimizing bleeding and tissue damage in order to improve the patient experience. In addition to managing periodontal disease with laser technology, we also provide grafting procedures that rely on this technology.
Is My Gum Disease Serious Enough To Require A Visit With A Periodontist?
If you address problems with your periodontal health in time, you can avoid the kind of problems that call for visits with specialists. Unfortunately, many people will not tend to these issues until they need help managing periodontal disease. At its more advanced stage, a problem with your gum health can cause tissue damage that leads to tooth loss. You also have to worry about the movement of bacteria to other parts of your body, which can lead to general health consequences.
Choosing Treatments That Rely On Laser Tools
We rely on laser tools when performing work that affects your gum tissues. These tools help us work with greater accuracy than manual tools provide, so we can do a better job preserving your healthy periodontal tissues. Another benefit is that we can minimize bleeding while we care for you, and we can remove the need for suturing after care is completed.
These tools help with more than just active periodontal disease. We can also use these tools to help patients who need jawbone grafting treatment to qualify for dental implant placement. For patients worried about their receding gum line, we can provide treatment using the Pinhole Surgical Technique to make the experience less invasive and more comfortable.
We Offer Care With More Than One Type Of Laser
Our office uses both the LANAP and the REPAIR WaterLase laser to provide periodontal services. Because we have different tools to choose from, we can more easily personalize your care. You should feel confident that any procedure recommended to you is planned around your needs and concerns as an individual. Our ability to recommend treatments with different tools, as well as our ability to make care less invasive, can help make you feel at ease in the dentist’s chair!
