encinitas gum diseaseWhen you have periodontal disease, you could experience uncomfortable symptoms and without care, you could risk the stability of your smile. Our team can offer care to protect your smile and maintain optimal oral health. In today’s blog, your Encinitas/San Diego, CA, periodontist talks about how we treat periodontal disease with dental lasers, and the benefits of your comfort and overall oral health.

The Causes and Warning Signs of Disease

You may find yourself referred to us by your general dentist, but you should also be aware of the common warning signs of periodontal disease. When you develop sore, red gums that bleed easily, then this could mean gingivitis or the early stages of gum disease. Regardless, treatment is crucial for either reversing inflammation, or managing the disease to prevent complications like adult tooth loss. When you exhibit the periodontal warning signs, please see us right away. Periodontal disease develops due to issues that irritate and inflame the gum tissues, such as tobacco use, plaque buildup brought on by poor oral hygiene, a family history of the disease, or inflammatory illnesses and certain medications.

Our Laser Systems

Using this technology enables our team to gently and thoroughly remove diseased tissues with precision and accuracy. Our team can also destroy harmful bacteria and help remove buildup from portions of your smile. By doing this, the disease can be properly managed moving forward with routine dental cleanings and preventive actions, such as medication, Ozone Therapy, and PST maintenance. We can use them to address more severe cases of gum disease with Pinhole Gum Grafts and other surgical procedures.

Benefits for Your Smile

Dental lasers offer a number of benefits for our patients. They’re comfortable and quiet, and rarely require anesthesia at all. They can target areas with precision and prevent damage to healthy tissues too. No need or scalpels or sutures, and the risk of bleeding, dwelling, and infection afterward is decreased significantly. Our team can help you maintain a full and beautiful smile, one that safeguards the stability of your teeth for years to come.
