Helpful Information About Periodontal Lasers

Problems with your oral health should be taken seriously, as there are different concerns that can have a big impact on your appearance as well as on your general well-being. Our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice is able to provide services that tend to more advanced problems with your gums. Left untreated, a serious infection can lead to trouble with tooth loss, and it can create complications that will challenge your physical health. One way we can help is by providing treatment with laser tools. Through their use, we can make your care more comfortable, and make recovering faster and easier. Laser technology also helps us take on other concerns related to poor periodontal health, such as gum line recession, and can prepare you for dental implant placement when your jawbone has deteriorated after tooth loss.

Am I A Good Candidate For Laser Periodontal Treatment?

When caught in time, an infection can be addressed with more conservative treatment options. If you are dealing with gingivitis, a careful periodontal cleaning can remove bacteria at the gum line and give you a chance to recover before periodontal disease becomes a serious concern. For patients who have more significant issues with poor gum health, a more involved procedure to address and clean periodontal pockets can be necessary. Because we can offer treatment using lasers, we can make this experience a better one for patients. To help us personalize care for our patients, we rely on different types of lasers. Our practice can use either our LANAP laser or the REPAIR WaterLase laser during treatment to fight the microbes responsible for your poor gum health.

Why Use Laser Technology Instead Of Manual Tools?

With our LANAP and REPAIR WaterLase laser tools, we can more carefully and comfortably access areas where tartar deposits are present between gums and teeth roots. This approach is more conservative than care with manual tools, shortening your recovery time and making it easier for us to preserve surrounding healthy tissues. Lasers can also help to address infected gum tissues.

What Treatments Include The Use Of Laser Technology?

In addition to directly fighting periodontal disease with our laser tools, we can use this technology to help patients who need to arrange grafting procedures. Both gum grafting treatment and jawbone grafting treatment can be easier on patients when the right technology is involved.
