When a patient struggles with periodontal disease, its effect on their smile is just one of many concerns that can be present. An infection that is not being managed properly can lead to complications that actually impact your general health, and it can cause a degree of attachment loss and tissue damage that leads to tooth loss! With that said, tooth loss and tissue recession are both issues that you can find yourself dealing with because of your infection, which means you can struggle with embarrassment over the way you look. Fortunately, your Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontist can offer care that relies on advanced laser technology to offer exciting results and more comfort during treatment!
Advanced Periodontal Services Can Help Restore Your Smile
The impact of periodontal disease on your general health and appearance can make the condition a difficult one to ignore. As microbes gather and spread on the roots of teeth, they cause inflammation and tissue damage that will lead to weakened support and eventually tooth loss. They also make you vulnerable to new health problems, as they can infiltrate your bloodstream and create problems elsewhere in your body. Both tooth loss and the recession of tissues creates problems that are cosmetic as well as related to your well-being. Fortunately, both conditions can be addressed, and their treatments can be made easier with laser tools.
How Laser Gum Grafting Makes Treatment More Comfortable
Through gum grafting services that use laser tools, we are able to move tissues to cover exposed areas without the need for suturing. What we rely on instead is what is known as the Pinhole Surgical Technique, a procedure that uses small, carefully placed holes to manipulate tissues into their appropriate spaces. In addition to making suturing unnecessary, this limits bleeding and general tissue harm, which means your recovery experience is easier.
The Role Jawbone Grafting Plays In The Restoration Of An Incomplete Smile
Although jawbone grafting is not needed for every patient who hopes to restore an incomplete smile, it can be an important step. Its role in care is to restore the health and density of your jaw, which can deteriorate over time because teeth are no longer present to offer important stimulation. Through the use of laser tools in this care, we can offer a shorter and easier recovery by limiting tissue damage and bleeding. As with gum grafting, we are able to perform this work without the need for suturing!
