How Technology Affects Periodontal Care

When you let it go untreated, an infection that affects your gums can have a significant impact on your well-being. The problems can worsen in time, which can both lead to worsening complications and the need for more involved services. Fortunately, the right technology can provide a better patient experience even when someone requires more advanced services. At our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice, we can supply you with periodontal treatment options that include the use of lasers to make your care less invasive, and your recovery period easier! Our ability to use lasers to provide better treatment options even extends to grafting procedures that help address different consequences of an infection.

Do You Have The Right Support For Your Periodontal Disease?

Without the right support, a person who suffers issues with periodontal disease can have a tough time due to the threat of damage to tissues that support teeth, which can lead to deeper periodontal pockets and issues with tooth loss. They can also experience trouble with their general health when bacteria make their way to other parts of your body by moving through your bloodstream. It can be frustrating to discover that you need help controlling a more serious infection. However, you can be relieved to know that laser technology can make services that address these troubles more patient-friendly.

What Lasers Do To Help You Fight Gum Disease

Laser technology helps with the fight against gum disease by offering better precision during care, more comfort, and even faster recovery times! Lasers can work more carefully to tend to problem areas without affecting healthy tissues. They can also minimize bleeding and remove the need for providing sutures to help with recovery. With them, Dr. Kania can carefully remove bacteria and unhealthy tissues to help with you avoid further complication and grow healthy gums to replace portions that are currently in poor condition.

Laser Technology And Grafting Treatments

By using lasers when we perform grafting treatments, we can offer the benefits of more accurate, comfortable care when dealing with some of the consequences of a severe infection. For people who are trying to recover from tooth loss caused by their periodontal disease, jawbone grafting can provide valuable stability and health for a deteriorated jaw, which can make a successful dental implant placement more likely. Gum grafting procedures help with both cosmetic and oral health issues that are linked to problems with more severe infections.
