Learn More About Periodontal Work With Lasers

There are different services that we recommend to our patients who are trying to fight periodontal disease. While supportive periodontal maintenance can help control risks for future problems, we can step in to provide more involved care if your condition is more advanced. Our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice includes laser services as part of our approach to care. An important benefit to using these tools is the ability to more carefully manipulate tissues so that your recovery is shorter and easier. In addition to directly addressing problems with infections, we can use lasers to perform grafting procedures.

Why Periodontal Disease Might Require Advanced Services

If you have serious problems with gum disease, it is important that you seek the support of a professional who can both help you understand the threat it posses and manage the problem effectively. There are many treatment options that we provide, including holistic services that rely on oxygen or your body’s natural growth factors to support you. We also rely on laser tools to tend to serious problems. By doing so, we can both fight the accumulation of bacteria below your gum line and remove diseased gums to encourage healthy tissue recovery.

Treating Periodontal Disease With Laser Tools

Through the use of our LANAP laser and our REPAIR WaterLase laser, we can tend to problems with your gums with care and precision. Lasers are more precise than manual tools, which means we can preserve more of your healthy tissues. We can also limit bleeding and remove the need for suturing by using them. After your treatment, you can see results sooner, as this approach leads to shorter and easier treatment times!

Using Lasers To Provide Grafting Treatments

There are times when periodontal disease will make grafting procedures necessary. If you have problems with your gum line due to tissue recession, we can discuss a pinhole gum grafting procedure that will remove the need for suturing. Instead, we use careful pin-sized holes to manipulate tissues into place. This work can help you avoid future problems, and it can also improve the way you look. A jawbone grafting procedure can be an important step before you begin the process of dental implant placement and restoration.
