Quality (And Comfortable) Treatment With Dental Lasers

encinitas repair with waterlaseWhen you have periodontal disease, this can cause discomfort and after enough time, could lead to missing teeth. But our team can offer treatment with the advanced REPAIR with WaterLase system, which helps treat and manage the disease. In today’s blog, your Encinitas/San Diego, CA, periodontist talks about the benefits of this laser treatment for addressing poor gum health.

The Risks Associated with Gum Disease

Periodontal disease can occur due to poor oral health habits that encourage plaque buildup and irritate the gums. A family history of periodontal issues could be a factor too, as could inflammatory illnesses or the use of special medications. Without treatment, the disease will grow in severity, and eventually lead to periodontitis, a stage in which the tissues connecting your teeth and gums are destroyed, causing tooth loss. Don’t risk painful symptoms like sore, red, and bleeding gums, or the chance to lose your natural teeth. Come see us for treatment when you notice discomfort or bleeding in your gums!

REPAIR with WaterLase

We have holistic and preventive treatments for the early stages of the disease, but for more severe periodontal concerns, we can offer care with advanced and comfortable dental lasers. These concentrated beams of light are specially calibrated to handle soft tissue concerns with precision and accuracy. We trim away the diseased portions of your smile with the laser, and the accompanying stream of water helps prevent damage and ensures comfort. We remove the tissues so healthy ones can reattach to the teeth, making the disease more manageable moving forward with our preventive and holistic treatment options.

Benefits for Your Smile

Dental lasers offer a number of benefits for our patients. They target the areas with greater precision than scalpels, and don’t damage healthy structures in the process. They also limit the risk of bleeding, infection, and swelling. Since we don’t use sutures, the area heals quicker, and most people return to their normal activities in as little as 24 to 48 hours. The procedure is comfortable too, and in many cases, we don’t even need to offer anesthesia. If you have any questions about how we diagnose issues like periodontal disease, or how we offer precise treatment with dental lasers, then contact our team today to learn more. You deserve a healthy, beautiful, and whole smile, and we’re ready to help you accomplish this!
