How Dental Lasers Provide Comfortable Treatment

kania dental lasersWhen our team treats periodontal disease, whether to prevent or manage it, we often employ advanced treatment options. With dental lasers, we can offer care with precision and accuracy. These treatments are also comfortable too! In today’s blog, your Encinitas/San Diego, CA, periodontist talks about the benefits of our dental lasers.

When You Need Advanced Technology

You may be referred to our team by your general dentist, or you may consider scheduling an appointment when you experience the common warning signs of poor gum health, such as tissues appearing redder than usual, soreness, or bleeding when you brushing or floss. Receding tissues could be a sign or trouble too, leaving your teeth with a monger appearance and increasing the risk of tooth decay and infection. To help manage the disease and prevent the later stages linked to adult tooth loss, we may offer periodontal treatment with laser dentistry. You can then enjoy optimal oral health again!

The Treatments Provided

Our team could use these lasers to trim away the diseased portions of your tissues, so healthy ones can reattach to the teeth and reduce the depth of periodontal pockets. Our team can do this using the LANAP system or possibly REPAIR with WaterLase. Your disease is then in a manageable state, one we can monitor with routine cleanings every three to four months. If you have receding tissues, we could use them as part of our Pinhole Surgical Technique, a conservative alternative to the traditional gum grafts.

The Comfort and Precision

Using this technology provides a number of advanced over traditional clasps and sutures. These can target the area being treated with precision and accuracy, so we can avoid damage to healthy tissues. The treated areas are also less likely to bleed, swell, or develop an infection due to the technology essentially cauterizing the treated portions. Which means your smile heals much quicker, and that some can return to normal activities after only a day of rest. Most treatments only take one visit too!

If you have any questions about our use of dental lasers, or if you would like to schedule a visit for yourself or a member of your family, then contact our team today to learn more.
