How LANAP and REPAIR Laser Systems Treat Gum Disease

encinitas dental lasersPerio treatment can help people avoid the dangers of periodontal disease, a common issue that could eventually lead to tooth loss unless properly managed. To offset this management and protect the stability of your smile, we will employ advanced treatment options. In today’s blog, your Encinitas/San Diego, CA, periodontist talks about the LANAP and REPAIR laser systems.

Our Dental Laser Systems

Our team employs both the LANAP laser system, and the REPAIR water lase system. These employ a concentrated beam of light that is specifically calibrated for soft tissue use. With multiple laser-assisted periodontal treatments, we can address minor and more severe cases, helping people manage the disease and avoiding the late stages linked to tooth loss in adults. With this technology, we don’t need scalpels or sutures at all, as the treatment is precise and prevents bleeding, swelling, and infection afterward.

Warning Signs of Periodontal Disease

When should you contact our team regarding your gum health? Common indicators of serious inflammation or the early stages of periodontal disease include soreness, red gums, bleeding, swelling, or recession, which makes the teeth appear longer. When you exhibit these common warning signs, please let us know right away. With advanced imaging systems, we can diagnose the issue and assess the severity, so we can plan the treatment with detail. While periodontal disease cannot be cured, we can use advanced technology to manage it, so moving forward we can keep it in check with eruption cleaning every three to four months, and better homecare hygiene habits.

The Benefits for Our Smiles

We’re proud to use laser dentistry to tackle your gum health concerns because this means greater precision and accuracy, and prevents any damage to healthy tissues. In the process, the lasers destroys harmful bacteria and microbes, which aids in the healing period and helps better protect your smile. In fact, many people only need a full day of rest before returning to their normal routine. We can personalize your treatment, which doesn’t require anesthesia, and you avoid bleeding and swelling during the healing process.

If you have any questions about how we diagnose and treat periodontal disease, or about how we manage the issue with advanced dental systems like LANAP and REPAIR, then contact our team to learn more today. We look forward to helping you smile with confidence once again!
