How Laser Treatments Address Gum Disease

There are different types of treatment that can help a person whose gums are not healthy. For people who have gingivitis, preventive services that remove bacteria from teeth roots can put an end to periodontal difficulties. However, for people who have more severe infections, proper maintenance can require more involved treatment. At our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice, the care we provide includes treatments that rely on laser tools to provide better experiences for patients. With the use of lasers, we are able to take on significant issues while making care more conservative, which can benefit you during and after your procedure.

Are You In Need Of More Advanced Care For Gum Disease?

When an infection first forms, you may experience problems with bleeding whenever you brush and floss, discolored or swollen tissues, and more frequent difficulties with bad breath. When you take action in time, you can reverse the condition and keep it from growing more severe. However, when the problem is not managed in time, it can progress to the point where you will require more than just preventive services to manage it. At this point, you have more vulnerability to complications that affect your general health as well as problems with tooth loss due to damage to your tissues.

Discussing Laser Treatment With Your Periodontist

When you have a more serious issue with gum disease, more involved care can be required. Fortunately, laser tools can make this kind of care more comfortable than you anticipate! One reason for this is that lasers offer more precision than manual tools, so healthy tissues are protected. Another is that when you have your treatment, we can limit bleeding and even remove the need for sutures. These features of care can lower your risk for an infection, and they can ensure that your recovery time is shorter and easier.

How Lasers Assist With Grafting Services

Laser tools can be effective when taking on jawbone grafting services and gum grafting treatments. Our gum grafts rely on the Pinhole Surgical Technique, which removes the need for sutures and offers results with surprisingly conservative care. When you need to prepare for dental implant placement, we can look at the health and density of your jaw to see if a procedure should take place to strengthen it. If so, we can use laser tools to make care more comfortable.
