Lasers Can Help Treat Gum Recession

Not every consequence of gum disease is easy to see. For example, one concern is that the bacteria that build up on your roots will move through your bloodstream and affect different parts of the body. With that said, there are effects from an infection that are more difficult for people to overlook. You may have experienced gum recession because of your infection, a problem that leaves you with portions of teeth exposed that used to be covered. This can throw off the quality of your smile, and it can also lead to trouble because it exposes portions of teeth that are more sensitive. At our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice, we can offer advanced treatment for this. Because we provide services that make effective use of laser tools, we can manipulate the tissues with a more conservative kind of care that can actually remove the need for suturing!

Has Gum Recession Affected You?

Gum recession is an issue that can affect you if you have difficulties with poor periodontal health. When it occurs, it leads to difficulties with your appearance, and it can create problems for your well-being. People who have suffered this issue can be more vulnerable to future problems with an infection, and they can have more problems with sensitivity. The good news is that with the right tools, this is something that can be treated conservatively.

Arranging A Pinhole Gum Graft

By relying on the Pinhole Surgical Technique, our practice is able to carefully manipulate gum tissues into their proper places. Using laser tools to make pin-sized holes for use in this care ultimately has less effect on your tissues, and it can ensure your treatment does not end with the need for sutures.

What Else Are Lasers Used For During Periodontal Care?

Through the use of laser technology, there are different kinds of care for more serious periodontal problems that we can make more conservative. For patients who are struggling with active infections, we can rely on lasers to access roots that need to be cleared of bacteria, and we can also use them to remove unhealthy tissues in order to encourage new and healthy growth. Another role lasers play involves jawbone grafting treatment. Because we can make this service more conservative, you can recover faster and move on to dental implant placement in less time!
