If nothing is done about an active problem with periodontal disease, the consequences can be severe. Living with this problem means living with an elevated risk for tooth loss and a vulnerability to general health issues. The good news is that your Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontist can offer strategies for treating this problem so that you have protection against these consequences. We can even make this service more convenient and precise by offering care with laser tools. Laser treatments can precisely target bacteria and unhealthy tissues so that you have a better experience while you are in the dentist’s chair as well as while you recover!
Issues With Periodontal Disease Can Require More Involved Care
If gingivitis is not caught in time, the infection can become a more serious problem that puts you at risk for significant issues with your health and well-being. Tissue damage from your infection can result in tooth loss, while the potential for the movement of bacteria can lead to general health problems that are potentially serious. Managing periodontal disease can be important for your long-term well-being. Fortunately, laser tools can make the treatment for gum disease easier. This technology minimizes changes to your tooth structure, and it will also provide a shorter and easier recovery period!
Using Periodontal Laser Tools To Address Gum Disease
With laser tools, we can directly take on problems with an active infection by both reaching and treating bacteria on your roots and removing diseased gums. The removal of gum tissues encourages the growth of healthy gums, improving your well-being. This care, along with the removal of bacteria, will help you avoid the consequences of periodontal disease. Lasers help by avoiding healthy tissues and minimizing damage, which makes recovery easier. They also help while reducing bleeding and removing the need for suturing.
Lasers Can Also Make Grafting Treatment Experiences More Comfortable
The consequences to more severe gum disease can lead to different problems that need to be managed. Fortunately, you can find that lasers still help when these consequences need to be managed. For example, we can provide a jawbone grafting service that will help you qualify for implant placement. If you have problems with gums that are receding, a gum grafting service using laser tools can make conservative corrections that remove the need for suturing and help to restore your well-being and smile!
