Lasers And Your Recovery From Gum Treatment

What takes place during treatment to fight periodontal disease is important. The right services help by removing harmful bacteria as well as by encouraging the growth of tissues that are not affected by your infection. With that said, the right approach to care is one that also prioritizes your experience once you leave treatment. At our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice, we rely on laser tools when performing advanced services. As a result, we can provide a more targeted and comfortable treatment experience, and we can also help you enjoy a shorter and easier period of recovery!

The Importance Of Managing Periodontal Disease

If you want to avoid the serious consequences of advanced gum disease, bring your concerns about the health of these tissues to a specialist. While gingivitis is reversible, and can be addressed through preventive services, periodontal disease can call for more involved support. At our practice, we can recommend services that effectively target both bacteria and unhealthy tissues, which can lead to recovery and protection against complications that can hurt your smile and overall health.

How Laser Treatment Fights Bacteria And Encourages Healthy Tissue Growth

With laser technology, we can work with more precision and care to address both bacteria buildup on the roots of teeth and problems with unhealthy tissues. We use both the LANAP laser and the REPAIR WaterLase laser to provide these services. With their more precise care, we can remove the need for suturing and limit bleeding. This makes the experience itself easier, and it also leads to better and easier recovery after work is completed.

Lasers Also Offer Faster Recovery And More Conservative Care During Grafting Procedures

Laser technology is also used at our office to provide both jawbone grafting and gum grafting procedures:

  • Jawbone grafting treatment is provided when a patient needs help qualifying for dental implant placement. With laser tools, we can make the experience easier and also provide a shorter recovery time. This helps you transition from this procedure to plans to receive your implant sooner!
  • Through gum grafting treatment, we can take care of both your oral health and appearance when poor health has led to noticeable tissue recession. With This service, we can lower your risk for future infections and cover up portions of teeth that used to be hidden behind your gums, which can improve your smile. Lasers let us work more precisely and complete care without the need to provide sutures.
