Questions You May Have About Laser Tools

You can have questions as well as concerns when you learn you need assistance managing periodontal disease. When an infection progresses beyond the stage of gingivitis, it can put you at risk for many different concerns, including concerns about tooth loss and complications for your general health. However, your problems can be effectively managed when you meet with your Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontist to learn about different treatment options. Our practice can provide better patient experiences by using laser technology to perform important services, including grafting treatments that help restore gum and jawbone tissues.

Do I Need Periodontal Treatment With Lasers?

While gingivitis, the initial stage of an infection, can be reversed with proper hygiene. In fact, our practice can provide scaling and root planing treatment for patients who are trying to respond to this problem. When your infection progresses past this point, you can find yourself in need of more involved treatments that help you deal with infected tissues and bacteria buildup. If you have a more serious infection, treatments that use laser tools can make the procedure more comfortable and precise. This technology can also provide a shorter and easier recovery.

How Are Lasers Used To Fight Gum Disease?

Through the use of different laser tools we have at our practice, we can directly target gum tissues that are in poor health. Through periodontal laser treatments, we are able to carefully access areas where harmful microbes are accumulated on the roots of teeth in order to remove them. We can also carefully tend to infected gums, which can start a healing process that grows healthy tissues. Because we have both the REPAIR WaterLase laser and the LANAP laser, we can offer a more personalized treatment for our patients.

How Will Laser Treatment Affect Grafting Procedures?

During both jawbone grafting and gum grafting procedures, we can rely on laser technology to help our patients during treatment itself and recovery. These services can play valuable roles in managing your periodontal and dental health. Gum grafting can improve your smile, it can help with dental sensitivity related to exposed teeth roots, and it can help with your gum health. Jawbone grafting can occur before dental implant placement to help ensure that the process is a success.
