If you have problems with periodontal disease, you should know that your condition can make you vulnerable to several complications. These complications include problems with tooth loss, damage to surrounding soft and hard tissues, and even general health threats due to the spread of bacteria. At our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal office, our practice can provide different services that address the impact of gum disease on your life. To make the treatments more conservative and accurate, we can rely on laser technology. Laser tools are able to improve your time after a procedure, too, as you can enjoy a shorter and easier healing period.
The Importance Of Addressing Advanced Periodontal Problems
When periodontal disease becomes a problem, you should know that more than just your smile can be at risk. Through the spread of bacteria through your bloodstream, new problems with your well-being can occur, including potential problems with heart disease. Your condition can make it more difficult to manage other health conditions, and it can lead to tissue damage that can lead to the loss of teeth.
Problems with poor periodontal health can be addressed in different ways, which helps with the management of different degrees of trouble. While preventive services can reverse gingivitis or control periodontal disease in its early stages, there are more involved gum treatments with lasers that can help with a condition that is advanced.
Lasers Offer Targeted Care And An Easier Recovery Period
With laser tools, we can provide a more accurate treatment, which means we can focus on the infection site and better protect your healthy gums when working to remove bacteria. During treatment, Dr. Kania will use these tools to access the roots of your teeth so that bacteria buildup can be removed. Your procedure can also lead to the removal of unhealthy tissues in order to encourage the new growth of healthy gums. Because this approach minimizes bleeding and reduces tissue damage, it is easier for you to have a faster and more comfortable recovery. This approach even removes the need for sutures to aid in your healing!
Lasers Can Improve Your Experience With Grafting Treatment, Too
With laser tools, we can also provide better patient experiences when we perform jawbone grafting and gum grafting procedures. Through these services, we can address certain frustrating issues that can be linked to periodontal disease. A jawbone grafting treatment gives us the means to restore jawbone tissues and improve upon your ability to safely receive and support a dental implant. Through gum grafting treatments, we can improve your smile and periodontal health by addressing tissue recession.
