Why Gum Disease Might Call For Laser Care

People sometimes fail to recognize just how serious gum disease can become, which can lead to serious complications that impact their smile as well as their overall health. At our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice, you can find that solutions are available when you face more severe threats from an infection. If necessary, Dr. Kania can recommend services that rely on laser tools to remove harmful bacteria present on the roots of your teeth. Clearing these microbes away, and removing unhealthy periodontal tissues, can lead to welcome improvements in your well-being as well as your appearance! Lasers also help us take on issues by performing more conservative and comfortable grafting treatments.

Your Issues With Your Periodontal Health May Be More Serious Than You Realize

If you let problems with gum disease form and worsen, they can have an alarming impact on your overall health as well as your smile. The damage done by these microbes can weaken the support for your teeth, something that will lead to difficulties with tooth loss over time. You also need to worry about the negative health consequences from bacteria moving through your bloodstream to affect other parts of your body. With a diagnostic review of your gums, we can help you understand just how serious your issue is, and we can discuss your different options for care!

Making Plans To Fight Advanced Gum Disease With Lasers

Through the use of our different laser tools, we have the technology required to make the treatment of advanced periodontal disease more comfortable for our patients. Lasers offer more accurate care, which means you preserve more of your healthy surrounding tissues. In addition to making more careful incisions, these tools limit bleeding and remove the need for suturing as they clear away bacteria on your roots and diseased gum tissues. Because this approach to treatment is more conservative and preserves more of your gums, you can have a shorter and easier recovery!

Lasers Also Help During Grafting Procedures

Laser technology also benefits those who come in for grafting procedures. We offer both gum and jawbone grafting treatments that play important roles in recovery from infections. Laser jawbone grafting can occur before you have dental implants put in place. Through the Pinhole Surgical Technique, we can manipulate your gums without the need for suturing, which means we can make the restoration of your appearance and health easier!
