How Lasers Help Restore Unhealthy Gums

There are problems associated with periodontal disease that you should be aware of, as they help to emphasize the need for proper treatment when your gums are not healthy. These problems include tooth loss, noticeable gum line recession, and difficulties with your general health. If your infection progresses to this stage, the right response will be important for preventing further complications and helping you with your recovery. At our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice, we can recommend that you undergo laser treatment to fight this issue and encourage better recovery. Lasers offer greater precision during the procedure itself, and they make it easier for you to recover from the treatment.

The Right Tools Can Make Periodontal Care Easier For You

When it comes to managing your periodontal health, the right tools—like the right services—can have significant value. By directly taking care of the bacteria that are spreading on the roots of your teeth and removing unhealthy periodontal tissues, we can help you grow healthy gums and recover from the harm that unwelcome microbes have caused. To make this process easier and more accurate, we can use laser tools instead of manual ones. Our practice offers care with both the LANAP laser and the REPAIR WaterLase periodontal laser, so we can further personalize your care by providing the right experience for you as an individual.

Using Lasers To Treat Unhealthy Gums

With the laser tool that we select for your treatment, we can carefully remove unhealthy portions of your gums and access the roots of teeth where bacteria are present. After removing those bacteria and taking care of unhealthy tissues, we can help you recover from your infection. Because lasers minimize both bleeding and tissue damage, we will not have to rely on sutures to help you recover, and you can find that your overall healing period is shorter.

Restoring Your Gum Line With Laser Technology

With laser tools, we can actually restore your gum line without the need to suture tissues to keep them in position. Instead, we can rely on the Pinhole Surgical Technique to manipulate the tissues into position. Taking this approach makes the overall experience more beneficial for you, and it still does the important work of improving your appearance and oral health.
