Through implant dentistry, people who have suffered from tooth loss can regain their complete, confident smiles. Unfortunately, there are issues that can interfere with a patient’s eligibility for treatment. One concern is over the loss of density in your jaw; as time passes, the absence of stimulation in the bone from teeth roots can lead to deterioration. At our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal office, we are here to help people with incomplete smiles progress through different stages of prosthetic support. In addition to discussing implant placement with you, we can recommend jawbone grafting treatment with laser tools in order to improve your ability to successfully undergo care.
We Can Help Prepare You For Successful Prosthetic Dental Work
The right approach to prosthetic treatment can result in more than just your smile being restored. A durable, secure restoration can hold up against biting and chewing pressure, which means your dental function improves. You can also support neighboring teeth and keep them from shifting or being lost. Implant dentistry can help patients see long-term value from care. This approach provides remarkable stability for prostheses. It also provides more oral health benefits by keeping neighboring teeth roots secure and stimulating surrounding jawbone tissues. Unfortunately, individuals who have left tooth loss unaddressed may need work done in advance of having one placed, as jawbone deterioration that occurs over time can take away important support.
Jawbone Grafting With Laser Technology
Through laser-assisted jawbone grafting work, our practice can help you qualify for the placement of a dental implant. Why are lasers used to perform this procedure? These tools provide more accuracy and protection for tissues than manual alternatives. They can also limit bleeding during treatment and lead to shorter and easier recovery times. Because you are able to heal faster, you can more easily progress to the next stage of prosthetic work and receive your dental implant.
We Can Also Use Lasers To Address Active Infections
Laser periodontal care can also help if an active infection is interfering with your ability to undergo prosthetic work. With these tools, we are able to carefully access and treat harmful bacteria. In addition to more comfortably removing microbes from the roots of teeth, lasers can better protect soft tissues, limit bleeding, and even remove the need for suturing.
