How Lasers Remove Bacteria From Teeth Roots

The accumulation of bacteria below your gum line can create serious trouble for your health. You may be surprised at both how much harm an infection can cause, and how difficult it can be to control when it is not treated in time. Fortunately, the right tools can make effective periodontal care more conservative and comfortable, which makes the treatment experience better for you both during and after your appointment. At our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice, we provide services that rely on laser technology to offer more precise care, better comfort, and easier recovery. Based on an evaluation, we can recommend the appropriate service so that you enjoy important protection from an advanced infection.

The Buildup Of Bacteria Under Your Gums Can Cause Serious Problems

A diagnostic review of your gums can help us determine what kind of support you require. Gingivitis, the initial stage of an infection, can be addressed through a periodontal cleaning. However, when the harm to your tissues has progressed past this stage, it can take something more involved to properly support you. For patients with more serious troubles, we can recommend more advanced services, including services that use lasers to more comfortably manipulate soft tissues so that we can both remove bacteria from teeth roots and clear away infected tissues to encourage healthy gum growth.

Using The Right Laser Technology To Take Care Of Periodontal Disease

Because we have both the LANAP laser and REPAIR WaterLase laser available to use in our practice, we can help personalized patients’ treatments to make sure that they have the right care experience. By using these tools, we can carefully access an area where bacteria have gathered in order to deal with periodontal pockets and the buildup of unwelcome microbes on your roots. Your treatment with lasers can shorten your recovery time and preserve more of your healthy tissues, and it can limit bleeding and remove the need for suturing.

Other Periodontal Services That Can Rely On Laser Tools

The use of laser technology can also aid in making your experience with gum grafting or jawbone grafting more comfortable. Treatment to restore the strength and health of your jaw can be required before you have a dental implant placed. With the Pinhole Surgical Technique, we can take care of embarrassing and concerning tissue recession linked to your poor periodontal health.
