Do I Need Laser Treatment For Gum Disease?

Is it time for you to meet with a periodontist to talk about your issues with your periodontal health? As time passes, an infection can become serious enough to put your appearance, dental health, and even your overall well-being at risk. In these situations, our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice can help. We can evaluate you to determine if you are a good candidate for treatment with laser tools to directly remove bacteria and diseased gums. Because we use lasers to provide these services instead of manual tools, we can make care more conservative and comfortable, and we can make your recovery easier!

Advanced Gum Disease Can Call For More Involved Care

During your regular checkups with your dentist, you can receive the kind of timely care that protects you against the onset of potentially serious gum disease. Between your routine visits and your daily oral hygiene routine, you control the possible onset of problems that will call for a visit with a periodontist. With that said, when those problems do arise, you should take them seriously, and you should look for the right services to control your risk for complications. After we provide a review of your gums to see how serious your infection is, we can discuss treatment options, including work with laser tools, to protect you.

Why We Use Lasers When Performing Treatments

By using lasers instead of manual tools for periodontal care, we can help you enjoy important services that control your infection with a less invasive treatment approach. Laser tools are more precise, so they can preserve more of your healthy enamel. They can also be counted on to cause less bleeding, and can even remove the need for suturing at the end of your procedure! Another benefit comes after the treatment itself—because the work itself is more accurate and conservative, you can have a shorter and easier recovery.

Can Laser Treatment Help You With Plans To Restore Your Incomplete Smile?

When advanced gum disease is not being managed properly, it can create complications that affect your ability to tend to other health matters. You may need to plan services to manage your infection so that you can proceed with prosthetic dental work. We offer different services in this situation, including work with laser tools to provide jawbone grafting treatment to restore the tissues and improve your candidacy for the placement of dental implants.
