When you develop gingivitis, or if you have the presence of periodontal disease, then you need treatment to enjoy a comfortable smile and avoid tooth loss. To offer treatment for minor and severe cases, we can employ advanced laser dentistry. In today’s blog, your San Diego/Encinitas, CA, periodontist talks about the benefits of laser dentistry.
How We Treat Periodontal Concerns
First, we need to take a look at your smile with digital imaging technology, so we can diagnose the presence of your periodontal issues and assess the severity. You may be referred to us by your general dentist, or if you begin to exhibit sore, red, or bleeding gums, you can contact our team for an appointment. Gum disease impacts half of adults over the age of 30, and lack of treatment could lead to periodontitis, the advanced stage that causes adult tooth loss. Our team can employ advanced technology to offer comfortable and effective treatment, so we can manage the disease and keep your smile whole and beautiful, correcting issues like gum recession as well.
The Benefits of Laser Dentistry
A dental laser uses a concentrated beam of light that is specially calibrated to handle soft tissue concerns. Our team can use this to trim away diseased tissues so healthy gums can adhere to the teeth once more. The technology also destroys the presence of harmful bacteria as well. With the same lasers, we can also perform a Pinhole Surgical Technique gum graft, correcting gum recession and protecting the vulnerable portions of the teeth from exposure to bacteria and disease. Afterward, we can employ smile dental cleanings to manage the disease and protect the smile, so you maintain an attractive smile and avoid major issues like tooth loss.
Now, let’s talk about the benefits of using this technology. They offer greater precision than scalpels and sutures, and essentially cauterize the treated area to prevent bleeding, swelling, and infection. We avoid damage to healthy issues too. The precision means the area heals much faster as well, and many can return to normal activities after only a day of rest. The procedure is also very comfortable, and rarely requires the use of dental anesthesia or sedation at all.
