Conservative Gum Grafting With Laser Tools

A gum grafting procedure can be important for several reasons. It can restore your appearance when periodontal disease causes tissue recession, it can cover naturally sensitive areas of your teeth, and it can help you maintain the health of your gums. When performed with manual tools, this procedure can require suturing and a longer or more uncomfortable recovery period, but laser technology can improve your experience. At our Encinitas/San Diego, CA area periodontal treatment office, we use laser tools and the Pinhole Surgical Technique to take on tissue recession with a more conservative procedure. In addition to making suturing unnecessary, this can reduce bleeding, lower the infection risk after treatment, and generally improve your recovery experience.

Gum Grafting Treatment Can Improve Your Smile And Oral Health

While tissue recession is often linked to periodontal disease, other issues can cause it to occur as well. When your gum line has changed, you can face a heightened risk for problems with gingivitis and gum disease, and you can experience frustrating issues with dental sensitivity, negative cosmetic changes, and more. By taking on this problem, you can regain confidence in your smile and improve your well-being. Our practice can make your experience with gum grafting easier thanks to our use of laser technology during patient services. As with other treatments that concern your periodontal tissues, lasers can make a grafting procedure more conservative by limiting tissue damage and bleeding, and by making your recovery easier.

Arranging Your Pinhole Gum Grafting Procedure

The Pinhole Surgical Technique makes it possible for us to provide a gum grafting procedure that makes your experience during and after your treatment more comfortable. By using carefully placed, pin-sized holes, we can manipulate the tissues into their appropriate spaces to improve your appearance and health. This approach eliminates the need for suturing, and it can reduce tissue damage, which reduces bleeding and your infection risk. The more conservative treatment makes it easier for you to recovery, and you can see esthetic improvements in less time.

Other Periodontal Services That Rely On Laser Tools

With lasers, we can help patients impacted by periodontal disease and hope to control the infection and prevent issues with further tissue damage and tooth loss. Our laser tools can precisely target areas where bacteria need to be removed. In addition to clearing away the microbes that are causing problems, we can remove infected tissues and encourage the growth of healthy gums. Another service that can benefit from lasers is jawbone grafting treatment, which can take care of complications that impact your ability to restore your smile with a dental implant-held restoration.
