Jawbone Grafting And Prosthetic Treatment

The work involved in restoring a person’s incomplete smile can lead to several welcome changes. The cosmetic effect of this care can certainly make it worthwhile, but there are also benefits for your oral health and bite function. With the aid of dental implants, patients with missing teeth can regain important support when they bite and chew, and they can enjoy better stability both for their restorations and neighboring teeth. An additional benefit to this arrangement is that implants actually stimulate jawbone tissues to keep them from losing mass. If you need preliminary work done to qualify for this kind of prosthetic work, our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice can offer a jawbone grafting procedure that relies on dental lasers to make care more conservative and comfortable.

Problems With Jawbone Deterioration Can Affect Implant Placement

There is a benefit to scheduling prosthetic dental work soon after losing teeth. If you postpone treatment, a gradual loss of bone density can impact your jaw, leading to difficulties in placing a dental implant. Does this mean you will not be able to arrange the kind of restorative treatment that can permanently keep a prosthetic tooth in place? While you may not be a good candidate at present, you can improve your candidacy by undergoing a jawbone grafting treatment to address that tissue deterioration.

Using Lasers To Perform A Grafting Treatment

By using laser tools when we perform jawbone grafting treatment, we can help patients enjoy faster and easier recovery after their procedure. We can also provide a more conservative experience with care, as these tools provide greater precision as we work on soft tissues and bone. Because you can heal more quickly from this more conservative procedure, you can move on to have your dental implant placement in less time, which means you have a shorter wait to regain your complete smile!

What Else Can Periodontal Lasers Do To Help You?

Laser tools provide many advantages during different periodontal services. Their precision helps us protect your healthy tissues when we target problems with severe gum disease. When dealing directly with an infection, we can carefully remove unhealthy tissues and bacteria with greater accuracy and less bleeding, and we can even remove the need for suturing. We can also rely on lasers to provide a more conservative gum grafting procedure that will not require suturing to produce positive results.
